closeness evades touch
baited moments now captured
loneliness stares back
When ones wishes for the other but never will it be
Seán Mac Falls Dec 2014
Without grounded words,
Senses have so much to say,
  .  .  .  Tongues, fingers flying.
Kiss tingle whizz fizz
Fireworks shooting hot stars
Lots of 'oohs' and 'aaahs'!
Kelci Oct 2018
Warm fingers reach out
Tearing their way through jewels
And deep blue velvet
Massage does it good
To the fibres of fatigue
Back ~ ease to normal
Imagined by
Impeccable Space
Poetic beauty

I called. No answer.
Tried to give love a new chance.
It did not go well.

precious life begins
entering womanhood now
in my arms you sigh

a senryu poem
Poetic T May 2015
electrons do spark
energy transcends pure thought
both equally caged
electrical and thought as one trapped in a prison of bone.

translucence is rare
withdraw your opaque armor
swim in fearless love

Head between the legs,
Lips smack juices flow job done,
Green paid delightful.

Were I a dead man,
Someone might notice the scent
Finally, a guest

An invitation-
With maturity, wonder!
So come into your own age.

I cried over you
But I will not remember
The way I missed you
I haven’t written a haiku for over 2 years!!!
(Edit, turns out this is a senryu which is even cooler!)
Mesmerizing swirls
hypnotize my eyes in the
lollipop garden

Discharged outlet,
Putrid vapours released,
Asphyxiating, foul scent.

chilling, careless smile,
your eyes perambulate the

Eye lashes flicker
a shared urgent interest
parting - dancing smile

Depersonalization
Succumb to numbness
In 1906 the term was first used. Depersonalization is known as 'The hidden epidemic'' in mental health.

I. (Yesterday)

I  was here crying
Wanting to kiss your footprints
Washed by the sea waves

II. (Today)

I'm back to this shore
To trace your footprints once more
But they're gone away
An excersise :  senryu

She blows with wild abandon
Balmy and warm in the cold night

sweet tender moments a gift
not to be ignored

Zoe was a clever girl, and I wasn't surprised when she wanted to try a haiku-style piece, but it was even cleverer than I had expected, with a correct syllable count and a delightful punch-line.

Slow-worm in the grass
looks at me with beady eyes
and puts its tongue out.


(Note: the slow-worm is a legless lizard that looks like a small snake, locally quite common in England.)
I love the suggestion that the creature is being cheeky by putting its tongue out, while we all know - don't we? - that lizards do this to smell the air around them.

The act of writing
Compels me to magic and
Elevates my soul
UPDATE: This was written before I had any idea what the difference between a Haiku and a Senryu is. I'm still a child in these departments. "Writing a Haiku" was the original title but this is not a Haiku. Therefore, after more than 1700 views, I've decided that it should be more properly titled. The title that fits best is simply this: "Writing" and it is more properly a Senryu.

It's no wonder this has been so popular here. We are writers and we know what the craft does for our souls and for the world. Nomenclature is really unimportant. What's important is the doing...

THIS IS THE INITIAL NOTES ENTRY: This is very true for me and I know it is for many of you as well. Writing is medicine for the soul and I don't know where I'd be without it.

Glorification,
Hidden behind **vanity,

Fake self wannabe.

Footprints in the sand,

waves washing them out to sea,

along with your dreams.
Poetic T Mar 2015
Tracks upon flesh
Stresses released, valves now eased,
Teardrops of crimson.
