Raindrops of My Heart

My soul weeps like a willow

bending but never breaking,

hanging on to hope.

Roaring loud as thunder,

burdens begin to fall

plethora of tears storm.

Slowly suffocating,

all of me is drowning

in the raindrops of my heart.

Haiku A Day – fight

fight settles, now she’s 
sitting quietly, it’s the
calm before the storm

Black Cloud

Strong winds blow,

door rattles, the sound

crushing my comfort,

in repose, eyes wide open.

Quiet storm hiding

within this cloud,

suddenly thunder claps

shaking the foundation.

Flash of lightning…CLACK!

Rumbling resounds againBOOM!

Another strike, and again

never the same place twice.

Fearful tears, stomach

turned upside down

seeking refuge, patiently

awaiting the calm.

Sounds of peace a lie,

gullible, I emerge.

(thunder)…BOOM! (lightning)…CLACK!

Darkness monopolized the night.

Haiku A Day – unlock

hearing the right words,
letting down my defenses
to unlock my heart

My share for Fandango’s Flashback Friday is from the 12th of January 2018, since my March post was reblogged not much long ago. Til this day, “Am I Dreaming” has received the highest view count of all my blog posts. I guess it’s a good one!

A clandestine affair hidden passions and desires lust gone too far Beyond these walls we know not of one another Intimacy evoking emotions that mimic…

Am I Dreaming?
