Wasting Some More Time With Haikus

SILKEN PEDESTAL

Grace and elegance

The compassion and romance

Lost by sycophants.

~*~

ARCTIC RAIN

Levy on the pain

And sing songs of Arctic rain

Chills that bite the heart.

~*~

AND ON HE GOES

Whisper and slither

Dark secrets under covers

On the devil goes.

~*~

SHAVEN VEINS

I asked for a trim

But you must have misheard, and

My heart you severed.

~*~

ERROR404

The lights flashed crimson

As my data screamed ERROR:

EMOTIONS NOT FOUND.

~*~

AMY

Ginger hair flaming

All cowardice dissolving

And she keeps running.

~*~

FAUX PAS

On they dance, doing

Tarantella, with razor

Blades inside their shoes.

~*~

BITTERSWEET DRINK

Stir my feelings up

Adding sugar to my cup

Toothaches and mistakes.

~*~

A DASH OF NOVOCAINE

Lose honour, gain shame

Drown myself in Novocaine

Why does it still hurt?

~*~

LETTERS FROM BEYOND

Scratching out letters

The stamp always delivers

To infinity.

~*~
