A new chapter now arises
Like fires that quench the cold night
Alight as a kingdom rises

Breakup asthma

curled into a sigh
every time he lied to me

Haiku #19

In slowly peeled banana
bite is very sweet
delicious on the tongue

Photo reveals me
The image could be a lie

Mind Control

Entering my mind
Hearing silence stops all time
There's nothing to find

Skin Deep

Beauty is skin deep
What matters is my soul's pure
The right one will come.

My heart beats for you
Flushing my skin a deep pink
Your touch ignites me.

I vow to be true
Put myself first before you
The rest will come soon.

Beauty is skin deep
I learned that lesson years past
I'll never forget.

Unnecessarily Roughness †

Penetrating roughly  
In her unwanted end zone
Now my penalty is rape.

I think it's actually 5-7-5 syllables

Bleeding Out

You taste like syrup
Tears of a sugar maple
Mortally wounded

Lusting Caffeine

Cold chill quill dripping
dark's latte creeping silently
lusting for caffeine

Poking her face with needle
And with knife on skin drawing doodle
She's dying in artistic massacre.

Haiku .001

The life we have had,
Could never have been as sad,
As the dying sky.
