Haiku #34

Standard

So I’ve been posting haiku one at a time as I write them over on tumblr, and now that I’ve got a few I figure it’s time to collect them here.

Untitled

Sometimes words fail me.

They jumble, crumble, turn to

Dust as they spill out.

*

Unrequited

Always, I miss you.

And yet, when we’re together,

I feel so alone.

*

Breath

And maybe we were

Fast and fleeting as a sigh,

But at least we breathed.

*

Untitled

I look in your eyes

And know what drowning feels like,

Breathless and alive.
