the lime and me

November 2, 2011- -Tuesday Tryouts Prompt
Write a poem of four quatrains that contains no adjectives, no adverbs, no similes, and the word “lime”.
the lime and me  by  Teri H Hoover

`
Afraid (Consumed by fear) of margaritas
the lime sat on the table
wrapped in plastic.
With the teapot for company.

I needed a dictionary
or a drink.
I wanted words
but could not think.

I wanted to stop
the lime did too.
I needed my friends
What could I do?

Ready to quit
This prompt and not go on.
The lime screamed- “Stop!”
Write now.

Adjectives, adverbs, similes... 
I love them so.
I may have used one of the forbidden parts of speech-
just let me know.
