Ok..I'm new on this site but have lots to share..This poem I'm posting has all male names because I am a woman. However(never forget the word..However) , I know we can ALL relate to at least one of these types of people! ..And isn't that so very sad? ..Anyway, hope you enjoy this...NK

'Players'

Hi, my name is Bert
My goal is only to hurt
I don't care about you
or what you've been through
I just want you to feel like dirt

Hi, my name is Sam
To destroy you is my plan
I'll massage your heart
then rip it apart
I do this because I can

Hi, my name is Dave
Your body is all that I crave
When I'm through with it
It's time to split
Don't expect me to turn back and wave

Hi, my name is John
I'm a regular Don Juan
I'll mess with your head
just to get you in bed
But, when you wake, in the morning, I'm gone

Hi, my name is Bill
I take advantage of you at will
I get into your soul
Make you lose control
Then I move on to my next kill

These players we've all had to meet
They've fooled us with lies and deceit
They play hurtful games
and leave us in pain
Then, move on to the next heart to cheat

So, don't be so quick to trust
Make sure it's Love not Lust
Try not to be blind
and keep in mind
Protecting your heart is a must

    Well, I must say that I really like this one. Yes, we have all met or known of characters like these. You did a great job!

    It strikes me as kind of funny, too. I think it's the rhymes; rarely do you see a serious poem written as a limerick. Kudos to you for giving it a try. It's entertaining as well as honest and insightful - way to go! I really like the Bert one and the John one.
