The Mulligrubs

The Mulligrubs

I lit up every time I saw him,
Basorexia drew me to him.
I found out he had been gambrinous,
I fell into the mulligrubs.
I lived for our time together,
Because I thought they were magical.
He knew knismesis turned me on,
I lit up every time I saw him.
I was caught up in the moment,
Willing to give him anything.
I thought he was in love with me,
Basorexia drew me to him.
Life happened, we lost each other,
I searched the internet and found him.
After many years had gone by,
I found out he had been gambrinous.
My sweet memories turned bitter,
After thinking I was so special.
When I heard what he didnít remember,
I fell into the mulligrubs.
Author's Notes:
This was a contest to use unusual words, words not found in normal conversation.  I found these at  The words I used:  Basorexia-overwhelming desire to neck or kiss, Knismesis-light tickling, Gambrinous-being full of beer, and Mulligrubs-state of depression or low spirits. 
This was done in the cascade form, but not strictly to meter number.
