I don't trust words. I trust actions.


I
I think I have my dad’s blue eyes.
I know I have his witty guise.
I have a mole on my left arm,
Right where all of his charm,
Pours out and makes a mess.

II
I know I have my mom’s slant smile.
I write and talk in her frank style.
I have mole on my right arm,
Right where all of her smarm,
Oozes out and makes you smile.

III
I don’t know who I think I am,
I’m not a lion and I’m not a lamb.
I have a mole above my heart,
Right where I thought my soul should start,
Though it leaks out a coded telegram.

This is not a funny limerick, but I liked the format. My parents are divorced and I often feel torn between the two.

Love this! My parents are divorced too and I totally feel where you're coming from. I really like how you used the limerick format to write a more serious poem - it contrasts well! I read it aloud a couple times, and I love how it sounds.
