unattainable: a limerick.


The beautiful love I longed to attain
Blew away as if stolen by a hurricane
I searched but could not find
That which will never be mine
Now tears fall from my eyes like rain

Mind and Life Matters limerick poetry challenge – prompt: rain

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.
