An Obsession With Adverbs

Long for her aggressively

Think of her obsessively

Watch her possessively

Imagine her terrifically.


Search for her endlessly

Bump into her knowingly

Smile at her desperately

Leave her depressingly.


Gaze at her longingly

Stare at her fixatedly

Frown on her objectively

Dream of her disgustingly.


Know her only passingly

With her only fleetingly

Mumble to her foolishly

Pine for her continously.


Glance at her nervously

Need her pathetically

Yearn for her tragically

Anticipate her rhythmically

So, are we to discover next that you are addicted to adjectives, partial to participles, generous with gerunds, perverse to prepositions, venal with verbs, a serial comma abuser, a registered noun-offender, or what?

You can do it, Branwell, I know you've got it in you!

Thanks for sharing, this was really fun to read out loud. I am a bit of a list lover and this tickled me in just the right way.

Choose her meaningfully,
Place her grammatically,
Replace her reluctantly,
Embed her lovingly.

Talk about a giant can of worms!
Fun poem!

P.S. I Don't think that owl likes me.
