An epiphany
raged through her, and she promised
never would he leave.

The dagger’s keen blade,
gleamed like a smile in the dark,
he caught in his eye.

Slowly oozing blood –
grief looming menacingly.
Tears, only respite.

Forever, my love,
she sobbed, falling on her knife.
Her life, too, bled out.

Throbbing melody
stops with a note unfinished.
Eternal silence.

  1. “Throbbing melody/stops with a note unfinished” Ahh, sigh… to my ears and the heart of love is pierced. Bon Jovi’s “Shot Through the Heart” popped into my head reading that!

    Although, and I hate to be picky, hahaha…but the pronouns in haiku one confused me. Sorry to be so fussy! haha *sheepish grin*

    “and she promised
    never would he leave.”

  3. The two of you work very well together. I had a more difficult time determining who wrote what in this collaboration than any of the previous ones. Great haiku poems and the painting is beautiful.
