Haiku 38 – Solo

A walk down the streets,
lights glittering, steps heavy.
Waiting for the sun.

Haiku 36 – Silence

Ellipses appear
and disappear when you don’t
want to let love win.

Haiku 37 – Destiny

Two stars orbiting
the sun, never realising
their paths would collide.

Haiku 35 – Kismet

Remembering things
I thought I’d forgot but then
learning something new.

Haiku 34 – Too

I wish you lived here
I could be in love with you
and you could love me

Haiku 33 – O 

Within the circle
lays an emptiness waiting
for its companion.

Haiku 32 – Shell

You are no longer
The person you used to be;
Carefree, vibrant, loved.

Haiku 31 – Aches

What I really need
Are your fingers down my back
To ease the tension.

Haiku 30 – Pine/Pint

Drain the pint to help
myself forget about you,
But it never works.

Haiku 29 – Enabler

Written words are sly.
When did I turn into an
Enabler of Death?
