I challenged myself to write a sugary romance using just 8 limericks. This is the result
A LOVE STORY IN EIGHT LIMERICKS
I first met my girl in the park
She thought it was only a lark
But I turned on my charms
and opened my arms
And we cuddled until it was dark
She’s sexy and funny and smart
With looks that could break a man’s heart
The love bug had bitten
I was totally smitten
I hoped this was only the start.
I stole my first kiss in the car
She said, “I can see that you are
getting very excited,
you’ve not been invited,
so don’t try to take this too far.”
We broke up with anger and tears
Confirming the worst of my fears
I’d been moving too fast
It just couldn’t last,
but I want to be with her for years
“I don’t want to lose my sweet Jill.
I'll go much more slowly, I will."
“I missed you,” she said
“Just take me to bed,
don’t worry, I’m now on the pill.”
We moved in together in May
I’ll always remember that day
As cooking and cleaning
for me had no meaning,
dear Jill had to show me the way.
I proposed to my sweetheart in June
She said, “Well, let’s make it real soon.”
It was so hard to wait
‘til we both set the date
And then I was over the moon.
Our wedding day dawned fine and clear
Unusual for that time of year.
When he said, “Kiss the bride,”
I was trembling inside
But our families all started to cheer.
