envy: a limerick.


Just like you, I wanted to be

Confident, fearless, worry-free.
But you hid your blues,
An elaborate ruse.
All along you wanted to be me.


Mind and Life Matters limerick poetry challenge – prompt: envy

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 Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. 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.

    Great limerick. It reminded me of a story you wrote a while ago, of a girl who wanted to be you.
