Limerick Challenge – Trust

Posted in response to the weekly limerick challenge over on MindandLifeMatter’s blog.

The rules of the challenge state that the prompt of trust must appear in either line 1, 2 or 5. If you’ve never taken part in the challenge, why not pop on over and have a go?

Here’s my take on the prompt:

Pensive she sat, raw and stricken,

Determined to never forgive them.

From beneath grief’s shroud,

She regrouped and vowed,

That her trust must be earned and not given.

 

***EDIT***

OK, this might be a bit braggy, but my limerick was chosen as the winner of this week’s Limerick Poetry Challenge which I am very chuffed about! Click here to read the winner’s post.

    The picture you chose gives off 100 emotions. The way shes crying, it looks like someone she loved dearly was killed by a DUI or something. Very tragic. Nice limerick.

  4. Liked your limerick very much – so succinct.
    Here’s one I wrote – They climbed the highest peak / No need to laugh or speak / Til they hit a crevasse / I’m scared she’d confess / So he put out his hand and held hers…
