Lost – A Limerick

This limerick was written as my entry to MindandLifeMatters‘ Limerick Challenge. The prompt this week is lost. If you’ve never come across this event before, head on over and have a go. It’s quite a challenge to write a limerick that’s not inspired by Benny Hill!


Lost in thought he revisits his dreams,

Faceless, but not all that he seems.

He smirks and remembers,

That day in November,

When all that he heard were her screams.

    *shudders* – I think all those creepy 6 word stories this week have definitely brought out a sinister streak in you!

    Ouch! That hit hard. Horrors, but very well written. It will be awfully hard to beat. But limericks are fun to write, aren’t they? I dash over and see what I can do.
