Wish – A Haiku


Make a heartfelt wish;

Shooting star streaks through black skies –

Blink and you’ll miss it!

Suspicion – A Haiku

I have a sad hunch

That you don’t truly love me;

Just a game for you.

Defenceless – Haiku


She fought her feelings,

Battled notions of love and

Romantic dealings,


But Cupid is smart;

Arrow strung, he took his aim,

Struck her through the heart.
