Humor- Word Rhyming Addiction

Updated on July 27, 2017

Rhyming Poems that I hope you enjoy reading, as much as I enjoy writing! I love to rhyme words, and it keeps me awake at night, sometimes!

Different Strokes


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Going to the extremes with things we enjoy doing, can sometimes end up being the very thing that controls us. Moderation and Balance is important for almost everyone. Now, does anyone know where I might find the nearest Rhymer's Anonymous facility?


I am no longer in denial

in regards to my

word-rhyming addiction;

Keeping me awake at night,

is the hallmark of this

serious affliction!


I ruminate over absurd

things in which I have

an urgent need to say;

Then, I start rhyming,

and rearranging these words,

in every possible way!


The rhythm, and harmony,

need to flow smoothly,

and come together just right.

If the balance seems off,

(even just a bit),

then I'll be awake the entire night!


In my head, this whirlpool

of rhymes goes furiously

racing on, and on;

Some self-control would be useful,

I admit, but I don't want

my rhymes entirely gone!


In my obsessive search

for various words which will fit,

and are structurally synonymous,

I distract myself from my more

urgent need, which is to find

a nearby Rhymer's-Anonymous!


Is there anything you tend to go overboard with?

See results

Too Many Rhymes!


Break Time from Rhyme Time!

      Thank you, kindly, Dream. I have been rhyming since I was born. Even as a baby, my cries were in rhyme :-) Hugs, Tamara

      I think your unique ability is a talent that you are learning to master. How long have you been rhyming? How much time do you spend during the week? Write down the hours you spend daily and keep a track record. I would be excited and not so concerned. Giving yourself freedom to do as you please makes it something to look forward to and appreciate. I would love to know more. Please send me a message if interested ? I often try to take all my creative energies and bottle them up but I have had no success. Maybe we could both work on it together. Two minds are better than one. Have a great Sunday.

      Lullabies for babies. So cute! So charming! Great rhyming poem, but look after the bodily Temple. It is that which must be used to manifest God's Light. Victory to you!

      Your rhyming addiction serves you well; you put it to good use in this poem. As long as there's always a venue for it, you'll be fine.
