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.
