Love:Before & After {Carpe Diem}



One sweet kiss away

from surrendering to you

Lover, hold my heart. 



Your memory haunts

the dark corners of my soul

Lover, let me go. 


For Carpe Diem today the word is

I give you both sides.

      I am so humbled by this comment, thank you so much. I can’t wait to read the others…I am growing to adore haiku so much and the community it has. All of you are wonderful, interesting, eloquent writers.

  10. Oh,how beautifully written and I loved the contrast!:-)

  11. The eagerness of the first, contrasted with the hurt of the second is very poignant, and really grips you.

  12. Wonderfully true… after the release the test comes: love or lust? ekis-harriette
