Alone again

A spring in my step

With a broad smile on my face

I went to meet her


The depth of her smile

Like the warm sun on my face

Would put me at ease


At our coffee shop

She was so late as usual

But I was relaxed


Always trusting her

I made a sugar pack heart

And waited for her


I looked at her eyes

And knew it was the last time

Could I endure it?


Now I was on the

The sad road to destruction

And alone again


  1. They say it's better to have loved and lost, but you describe so well that moment when one wonders if putting one's heart out there is such a good idea.

  2. Oh, Robin, and he had the heart-shaped bunch of sugars and everything. I hate when love lingers and then leaves. But I do love being in love, and today is Lex's and my 15th! So our sugar packets are in good order... Amy

  3. Yes..the sugar pack heart is an enduring image..the moment before the last moment is that harder than the moment after? If that makes sense..such a rich piece of work..

  4. Oh, heartbreak! Hopefully, this will make him stronger!

  5. It can seem unbearable but bear it we do.

  6. and all the better for it...she was not your least that's what my mother told me.

  7. If she's going to break up with you, the least she could do is be on time.

  8. The romanticist in you was going on so beautifully and suddenly the death scene at the end!! Wonderful haiku narrating such a great tale!!

  9. Beautifully romantic, old egg. A sad ending though.
