Haiku for Adulthood #104-#109


“The most redeeming thing about fools is that we always relate to them. And find mercy in foolishness.”

You’re right of course, to

 

call me a fool, but not to

 

resent me for it.

 

_________

Your love, this splendid,

 

heroic passion, is more

 

gift than dismissal.

 

_________

I ask not for happiness,

 

just for the right to

 

love you, and love you.

 

_________

Inspiration comes

 

only after loss. Better

 

to write than to beg.

 

_________

(Not quite haiku)

You called me many things.

 

It was only a matter of time

 

before you called me out, as well.

 

_________

There’s no room for fear

 

in love. You’re either really

 

lucky, or really lonely.
