Broken Heart Haiku

You are here and yet
you already can break me
with one sad goodbye.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why can't you see me
for everything that I am
I am not simple.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Complex as I am
you only see a small piece
of all that I am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Withering away
unattended by
loving, warm, sunlight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Empty room, no music
Children's laughter far away
Alone small words come

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pen scratches paper
Black marks sully the parchment
nothing real is said

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You tell me goodbye
I choose not to believe you
still, you are not here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No words are spoken
no kiss on the cheek - goodbye
yet you are not here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Disappearing Man
so long he stays in my life
gone without a word

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Am I lost to you
Have I escaped your last thought
I thought you loved me

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What a fool am I
to think you ever cared
your words were not true

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cling now to last breath
the air so faint and fleeting
slumber comes too fast

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Screams the girl alone
I am here and alive now
no one hears her cry

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Small bird sings softly
cricket wings break the sky
I alone hear you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tears roll down your face
salty drops wet your face
I can't wipe them dry
