Lonely tear (serious limericks)

I dare you to feel the hurt that is mine
You catch me crying some of the time
For my true love I grieve
Move away from me, "Leave."
Just remember for whom, I write this rhyme.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Last few words: 
Not sure if this swings as a limerick should, they always seem to be happy things or just funny, now what???

The correct form for a limerick is supposed to be:-
The typical rhythm of a limerick is like this:

bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH
bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH
bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH
bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH
bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH bah-bah-BAH
.
But I have used Poetic Licence here lol, thanks very much.
I will try to perfect the form as and when time permits,
I am so glad that you are here to critique, you are bringing a great deal to Neopoet, well done young Lady,
Yours Ian.

to make people start a day
with lamentation
instead of a positive commendation
sadness is all around
where have gone all minds
which were once sound

by the way not a limy
just a story tiny
ok shiny

yet some lines are still longer than they should, especially lines three and four. That's what differentiate lemericks from any other short form.
Still, I like it Ian

When read aloud, I notice that up to line 3 it is easy on the tongue, whereas line 4 & 5 affect the rhythm.

Lines 3 and 4 have to be short and it then becomes awkward to maintain the rhythm that the first three lines can give in their length.
I shall have another look at this one when time permits.
Thanks for your visit,
Yours Ian.
