Create a limerick on any topic of your choosing. It can be serious or humorous. A limerick is a short poem of Irish origin which consists of 5 lines in an "AABBA" rhyme scheme: 1st, 2nd, 5th lines rhyme with each other. 3rd and 4th lines rhyme with each other.
Written by Sammielee46

The Inner Child

Growing up or growing old?

A bit of both if truth be told

But I've always relied

On the child inside

To keep my heart warm and not cold...

Mother's Day takes place in May for U.S. residents but those in Great Britain will celebrate it this Sunday. Write about your own mother, in any form, or tell us a story inspired motherhood.
Written by Sammielee46

She Gave Me Life, I Gave Her's Back.

I remember that day

Fourteen years back

A teen,

- Innocence

A thing of my past.

An abusive father

Vacated

- Gone

I stepped up to the mark

Not that it was expected

But I felt responsible

For you.

I heard you choking

The air

Leaving your lungs

Your skin turning blue

- Young

But no longer naive -

I couldn't lose you.

Watching your strength

Drain,

Your body

Fall,

Your head ricocheting

Off the toilet

- The sound of a

Crack

In the air

Echoing

Like

Stagnant water.

My panic

Erupted

I couldn't lose my mum too.

I remember,

Picking up your limp body

Holding you in my arms

My ten year old brother

Screaming

- reassuring him

- reassuring me

Failing.

Squeezing you so tight

Building the pressure

- willing you to breath

Willing your blue lips

To find their breath

To see your hazel eyes again

Rather than the whites

You showcased.

Right there,

In that moment.

I was forever lost.

With one almighty wheeze

I'd brought you back

From the infinite blackness,

Your colour returned

- relieved

Yet still petrified

That it would happen again

And I

- The child I was

Would have to be the strong one

Again.

The doctors told me

I saved your life.

Seems only right,

When you're the one

That gave me mine...

What is the afterlife? In no more than two hundred words, tell me what is the afterlife.
Written by Sammielee46

Air Of Serendipity

Who cares?

We, the human race are too obsessed with what's next,

We'll be eating our lunch

Wondering what's for dinner

Spending a lazy Sunday

Musing on the Sunday after.

Do you ever just sit

And live

In the exact millisecond

Rather than thinking

Towards the next?

Do you sit and allow

The moment to

Overwhelm

And captivate

Infect our core

With its beauty

And it's timelessness?

We are living this life

Right now

Breathe in -

Breathe out

The air is pure

Full of opportunities

Full of serendipity

Yet here we are

Wondering

What the fuck is next.

The afterlife?

What is it?

Who the fuck knows.

I'm in no rush

To run toward the time

Where like two atoms

Colliding and fading

I become the empty hourglass

And take in serenities last

Breath.

No. I'm living now.

Life's too short,

Live and love in the now.

Don't let time run away with you.

So the afterlife?

Who the fuck knows.

And who the fuck really cares.

Where's Wally?

Sometimes

I have no idea where

I'm headed.

I'm a wanderer

Wondering

Whether

I'm searching

Or

Whether I'm

Actually,

Lost.

When I was young

I had this jigsaw

Where one piece was missing.

Who knows where that piece

Had meandered too

But my 'Where's Wally' puzzle

Was without Wally.

The one piece that

I was missing

Was the one

With Wally

Hiding

In a sea of lookalikes.

But, I now realise

that it didn't matter

I no longer need to search

For my 'missing piece'

I am completely incomplete

- I'm no longer lost,

Because I've found

That

It's our

Imperfections

That make us perfect...

The Concept Of Freedom.

Freedom.

A controversial

Concept.

One minute it's a given,

The next minute

A luxury,

Question is

Are any of us truly free?

Sure, we can travel

Within our own

Cities and states,

With the windows rolled

Down

Feeling mother natures

Breath

Stroke our skin.

- we can lay on our back

Upon a field of green

Listen to calm and serene

While we stare up to the sky

Watching the jewels

Of the aura

Flicker amidst the

Black.

- we can smile

Feel like we belong

Our hearts

Can love and feel

Contented,

Our limbs can

Embrace

And trace

Someone else's

Warmth,

Our lips can seal

A kiss

Our tongues can taste

But -

What the fuck is freedom?

I'm not free

I'm confined

By the words that I've left

Unsigned

The words I'm too scared

To say

- or write

By the darkness that

Envelops me at night

By the sound of silence

That deafens my ears

By my ignorance

To my heart

And all of its fears

- I'm not free,

I'm one step from insanity

- but the one realisation I had

was completely profound

We are never truly free

While our feet are on the

Ground...

Trust In Me

With false prophets

Cloaked

As law abiding

Citizens

- Murderers

- Cheats

And fucked up

Liars

Walk free

Amongst the pure

- The pure becoming

Rotten flesh

Maggots eating

At their innards

(Metaphorically speaking)

The pure

The untouched

Becoming tainted

By the unclean

The scum

The forked tongues

Meandering society

Wearing

Masks

Of decency

Infecting everything right

With the world

Infiltrating our

Moral fortitude

With vigour

And passion

The dank darkness

That prevails

Kindness to depart

Leaving the hearts

Of the uninfected

Running scared

Who do you trust?

Can trust be misplaced?

When you next look

At your loved ones eyes

Doubt is sown

That tiny seed

Of question

Because the fucked up half

Of our once unbroken

Nation

Has ruined and spoilt

Our hearts,

Made us wary of every fucking thing

And every fucking one

Wave goodbye to security

Because I can tell you to trust in me

But the venom of others

Has evaporated my sincerity

Into a mist of guess work

So don't trust in me

Trust in you

Trust yourself

Your mind

Gut

Heart

And soul

If that tells you the world is fucked up

It's probably right...

Sidelines

I don't want to be

In the limelight

I'd rather sit on the

Sidelines

Watch - oversee

- The social declines

Around me

I don't want to converse

Over the superficial

Bullshit

Or make ties with

Fake lies

That resonate

In your eyes

- If I sit

On the bench

I can watch from

Safety

- Instead of communicating

With you

Whilst you try to

Frame me

- If I sit

I'm not standing

I won't turn

To walk away

Because when I do

That is when

You attack

Your smile turning sour

Then twisting

Your knife

In my back...

Just For A Moment

Just for a moment, feel my skin

That's wrapped in yours, two souls, akin

Just for a moment, let me draw you within

Feel urgency for me, as your patience wears thin

Just for a moment, press your lips against mine

As we feel that connection, we belong, by design

Just for a moment let our bodies align

Let two become one as our atoms combine

Just for a moment, listen to my sweet sigh

The passion notes I sing, a lovers lullaby

Just for a moment, watch me as I fly

Take hold of my hand, as we soar to the sky

Just for a moment, hear the beat of my heart

Crafted by your love, the complete work of art

Just for a moment, look back at our start

I'm so deep, I couldn't imagine us apart...

Write a story about your scars?
Written by Sammielee46

Soulful Scars.

Defaced, disfigured

My scars run deep

Scabs and scrapes

Torn open

They seep.

Like canyons, they're vast

Bottomless. Wide.

I told you I'm whole.

I'm sorry.

I lied.

Invisible, unseen,

Locked hidden away.

Rotting inside

Crippled by their

Decay.

My scars are soulful

They come from my heart.

I create more, each day

They're ripping me

Apart...
