Message to My X

I fell in love at thirteen
You might say I was quite green
I held his hand tight
He was out of sight
But now he’s being so mean!

At camp, spent days in a tent
His pride had taken a dent
We made up just fine
That sweet boy of mine
But now he seems so hell bent.

He needs some joy in his life
And though he has a great wife
A friend’s always nice
To add some more spice
But he’s afraid of the strife.

I’d shower him with such joy
But he's a silly old boy
He won’t come to play
He must have his way
My heart he’s used like a toy!

“My dear, why can’t you be nice?
Before you end it- think twice
Between you and me  
Let’s make harmony
You’ve made me pay a high price!

    Great way to use the form Limerick..Sometimes in marriage we learn how to put the dagger in deep and twist it..We learn the other's weaknesses and use them..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    I enjoyed your limerick. Such a gentle soul you are. For an "X" I would have expected a harsher more biting limerick. I'm glad to see the experience hasn't left you Jaded.

    Oh Jon, it has. I sent him this limerick.., no reply. It has left me very jaded, and I'm still trying to come to grips with it. Found him after so many years. We both have moved on and have families but there is always something special about a childhood sweetheart isn't there? Doing the right thing isn't always easy. Oh well...thanks so much for the lovely post. :)

    Pretty darn cool! I never read an extended limerick before, but I like the form. The meter for limericks is pretty strict and I think you could make just a few minor changes in some of the stanzas to get this poem's meter perfect.

    Roy...you're right! I don't know how I didn't pick up on them. I fixed some of the lines...hope it is more smooth flowing now. Thanks for the tip. :)
