Journey: a series of limericks

Your face was aligned to my brain
I heard your voice falter and feign
We made this decision
To give up the vision
and end this journey’s sustain.

I feel you turn over in sleep
I wrinkle the bedding we keep
You stutter and snore
I look at the door,
my thoughts continue to steep.

We unrolled the truth of our end
We haven’t had courage to send
the final goodbye
its answering reply
or the lie that we will remain friends.

  1. Troubling journey for the characters. The poet did a superb job capturing emotion in a limerick. That is not the way the form is used traditionally. Love it.
