Haiku Heights – Silence

Screams roar from my mouth

words can’t escape the damage

I turn to the wall.

*****

No-one speaks or shouts

Try to talk in measured tones

Words that are silent.

*****

Old wounds, never die

ripped apart with trembling hands

Add blood and lemon.

*****

Deep within my grief

We know that life is cruel, sad

Always more to come.

  1. Wonderful haiku and Zemanta offers it to me all the time. After three goes it’s probably time to move forward. TY! 🙂
