Through your white nightmares
and your lover's looking glass;
sighs from reflections

morning ice sickles
bare fingers reach for the sun
leafy days are gone

Why do I feel that
I'll regret what I'm saying
When I text people

Why do I feel like
Every decision is the
Most important one

Why do I still feel
Backed into a corner when
Someone shouts at me

Why do I feel that
Absolute compulsion to
Run away from here

Why is it that I
Just can't seem to make my mind
Function like others'

Precious wine-sweet days
Fitting, extended dessert
For a longtime love

#haiku  

Singing for the lost
while praying they'd come back home
to a lonely nest.

#haiku   #hope   #lost   #missing   #lullaby   #return

Rich cherry lipstick
Upon flawless painted skin
A womans disguise

I thought of myself
As a phoenix set aflame
Now I'm just ashes

Just noticed this worked almost as well as (if not better than) the original structure. What do you guys think? Constructive criticism and feedback is always appreciated.

Enchanting azure
caress withered sighs broken-
Humanity's hearth

He was a bastard for letting you go
I was stupid for thinking that you'd run
For me after he broke you

-Not mine

only gods may breathe
that bright air beyond the stars
mortals are denied

In Greek mythology Aether embodies the pure upper air that the gods breathe, as opposed to the normal air (ἀήρ, aer) breathed by mortals.
