FIVE HAIKU POEMS: BRUISED, YET HOPEFUL
This poem was a collaboration with Rose of Poet Rummager published on May 4, 2017.
I am posting it again because this is one of many haikus I have written and a personal favorite; while at the same time one of the collaborations which really boosted my site.
Within this brick wall,
lies my heart where no light shines.
Rejected, it sleeps.
Hidden in the dark –
dreaming so damn hard and tight.
You’re not mine, it weeps.
In this tiny room,
my heart beats against the stone –
bruised yet still hopeful.
Bleeding and in pain,
it yearns to be free again.
Walls start to crumble.
Deep scars you might keep.
Love may fade, but you decide –
Are you strong or weak?
