Rules


The Haiku must follow the traditional standards. For those who are not familiar with this style of poetry I suggest you look it up. A good reference site to use is http://www.wikihow.com/Write-a-Haiku-Poem

Entries



1. [Leb]
The Word Willingly

I said, "No," not "Please."
I was not a willing Leigh.
Rape became my fate.

2. [Rice]
You

Twisting and churning,
My desecration and hatred festers,
Clawing and purring your name.

3. [Rice]
GSR

Take aim and fire BANG love screamed.
Straight through the heart and out the other side,
I bet she didn't see that one coming?

4. [Nioniel]
Definition Of

Insignificance.
A word that hardly means that
She was ever loved.

5. [Leb]
Craving Apathy

Some days I am strong. 
Some days I am weak. I would
prefer to just be.

6. [Leb]
Physical Evidence

Ring on her pinkie
that glares in a black-and-white
photograph. Engaged.

7. [Evolution X]
Backlit eyes

Back glare in darkness.
The world at your fingertips.
Slowly blinding you.

8. [Evolution X]
Lost Penny

Rolled beneath the couch,
among solitude and trash.
Where cold metal dies.

9. [Evolution X]
The descent

Pounding on the floor,
Starting treacherous slick slopes,
Sledge-hammers of hope.

10. [Evolution X]
Depth

Sometimes hope is bright,
but it is not a small speck,
but a distant sun.

11. [Evolution X]
Still standing

Misery and loss,
mayhem, war and pestilance...
Might never happen.

12. [Leb]
Poured Out My Heart, But Not the Sand in My Shoes

Sand in my shoes makes
walking with a heavy heart
harder. Pour it out.

13. [Rice]
War

Love cries 'this is War',
Bloodshed across the battle feild.
I laugh, then break.

13. [Rice]
Cynicism

Sweet, tasty, loathing,
Writhing in my hand - crush,
What a bitter end.
