limerick poetry challenge: immortal

I suppose I can’t say I’ve never written a limerick before anymore. I usually associate limericks with humor, but I kind of abandoned that association this week.

Limerick Poetry Challenge at Mind and Life Matters – This week’s prompt: immortal

You ask, “Do you want to live forever?”
I say, “Not if we can’t be together.”
Immortal and alone,
Crying at your headstone?
My dear, no, with you in death is better.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
