For me or Against me?

For me or against me?
Do stay out in your uncertain nest,
Go to your heart desire,
Follow your real heart 
If i am not enough for you.
Really,it's sometimes difficult 
When my pockets seemed dried
And empty,
I failed in action when such happens,
At harmattan things seemed even worst,
For the pockets get even drier and smaller.
I know i will smile one day.
No longer then twist me and tell
Me lies...
Or flying around me like flies.
Be for me or against me
For good.
I know the symbols 
Of your deceptions,
Writing all over your smile 
And speech like the words of Jezebel.
The movements of your waist
Like wind from nowhere to anywhere
Are all relics of your coming and going.
Then be for me or against me,
For my heart is tired,weak and feeble 
As i wait to see if the next will 
Step in and stay for good.

    Very good, Charles! It's not a limerick though. There is some rhyme here. If you make the rhyme more consistent and reduce it to 12 lines or less, you would have a great entry for the election humor contest. Thanks for reading my work. Check the forms of poetry link in the blue banner near the top of this page and you'll see the limerick form. Best to you, Diane

    Hi Charles. I see you have given a choice -for me or against me, sometimes in love it comes to the point of either stay or leave. Enjoyed this write Charles. God Bless Phyl
