Feeling the haiku right about now...

You say you love me
Yet you beat me with your fist
This cannot be real

Till death do you part
This (s)kin you are not to touch
Guess you like them young

love is not abuse.

That is fucked up.

Talk about evoking emotion!

So short, yet so poignant...
Give them something they can feel,

I have a whole new respect for the Haiku!


Don said...

Dumb Question: what does the "s(kin)" reference mean?

MysTery said...

This 'skin' you are not to touch. -meaning you are not supposed to touch me.

The 'kin' is in parenthesis to explain: the relation i.e.,
family relationship or kinship.

Then I wrote- guess you like them young.

Basically saying in a way, I am your step child whom you are not supposed to touch...

Hope that helps. :)

That was deep, and in so few lines, touched on so many feelings. Great work!

those are some well-crafted haikus. it's a gift to be able to say so much with so few words.

love is not abuse
it is the salve on tears to
clot the soul's bleeding

never forget love
no matter the time of day
love remembers you

love wants you to win
your sin in life is trying
not to love again
