Love Haiku #5

21
Ran five miles home,
A long sprint to hide my shame;
A longer shower

22
An empty vessel.
I won’t miss you when you’re gone
I tell myself now

23
Last look through the door.
My heart stretched to breaking point
To see you with him

24
A look, lingering
Slices through my defences,
Leaves my wound exposed

25
My sun and my sin,
Guiding me through moonless night
Blinding me to faults

26 – For Emma
Purple skirt kisses
Next to the bar quiz machine
You looked amazing

Love Haiku #4

16
Forbidden kisses
In the snow that Christmas Eve,
Furtive magic fell

17
Your love engorges
The heart’s necrotic chambers
With just a smile

18
I had brought you wine;
A thousand apologies.
Your heart’s course was set

19
Frozen heart shatters
Reflecting crystalline love
In her baby blues

20
Bitten by your ghost
Ethereal reminders
Liquefy reason

Love Haiku #3

11
I couldn’t quit you.
Magnetism of moments.
But one too many

12
Love’s war: I chose lust.
Illicit passion triumphs
Soft ebbs into guilt

13
Black magic kisses
Bring less than heavenly thoughts
No need for armour

14
Whirlpool, whirlwind kiss
Bound me in her spell, charm-tied
Till death released me

15
Started with a kiss.
So far, so good, I thought then
Hit the ground at speed

Haiku Challenge – “Lock” & “Gab”

This is Ronovan’s latest haiku challenge, with the prompt words “lock” and “gab”. https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/06/15/haikuchallenge-49-ronovanwrites-lock-gab/ I wrote a huuuuuge pile of love haiku at the weekend that I’m publishing here each day, and it seems that the theme of love has seeped into these too…

The Princess and the Toad
A garrulous toad
Unlocks the princess’s heart
But he’s not a prince

The Love That Dare Not Speak
I don’t have the words
For love that dares not whisper
Lock down all feeling

Routemaster
The gift of the gab
Is my route to your riches
A forbidden love?
