3 Haikus Part IV

You are magical.

You, who make my dreams come true.

There’s no one like you.


Green, orange, and blue.

These are the colors of you.

Bright and full of life.


Tried to walk away.

Your pull is too strong for me.

Just like gravity.


3 Haikus Part III

The wind gives me chills.

I see you in the shadows.

Time just seemed to stop.


I hug you tighter.

You seem to push me away.

Then I let you go.


Suddenly she’s there.

She came to take you away.

You just up and left.


3 Haikus Part II

You’re who I prayed for.

You are the love of my life.

Let’s stay together.




We’re in the same room,

Looking at the same ceiling.

And yet I miss you.




You brighten my day.

Your smile is like a lamp light.

So warm when you’re near.



3 Haikus

I looked in your eyes.

I saw tenderness and love.

I blinked, and it’s gone.




I used to love you.

I chose you before myself.

But now I let go.




My heart’s full of light.

I’m happy when I’m with you.

Everything is bright.




We passed by each other in the hall. I tried to catch your eye, you looked straight ahead. Interesting, I thought. I was intrigued. And like a moth to a fire, I was drawn.

Another day. I found myself seating across from you. We smiled. We talked. And laughed. And talked some more. And laughed some more.

A different day. We passed by each other in the hall. We looked at each other this time. I smiled. You did too. As I walked away I kept thinking about your smile, your laugh.

We had lunch, just the two of us. I watched you eat. It’s amazing how you can eat for 3 people and not gain weight. I hated you then.

We were instant messaging all day. You’re charming in the virtual world, as you were in real life. You used a lot of emoticons. I liked that. I liked that we could talk about anything and everything. I liked that no one else can make me laugh the way you did. I liked that we were in the same wavelength. I get you. And you get me.

I sleep with a smile. Because in those moments when I’m about to fall sleep, I think of you. I replay the day’s events with you in almost all of the scenes.

I got in the car. You smiled and said, “Good morning!”. I said it back. What a good morning indeed. You held my hand while you drove. Thank God for automatic transmission cars.

Breakfast. We were seated across from each other. You were reading the paper. I picked on my food. I felt peace then. I watched you while you read, taking mouthfuls of food in between pages. I thought how beautiful you were. And I thought what it would be like if we get married.

We shopped for pillows and bed covers, shoe racks and tumblers. I imagined us getting a home together.

You were in the kitchen, making coffee. I hugged you from the back. You turned to hug me back. And then you kissed me. Fireworks were all over the place.

I asked if you wanted tea or coffee today. I prepared it for you, and you made me my coffee too. We ate some bread and cheese.

You handed me a package. I opened it to see my favorite chocolates. You remembered. I like it when you pay attention to what I say.

We watched a movie together. You put your arm around me because I was cold. I put my head on your shoulder. I sighed because I could stay like that forever.

You introduced me to your friends. I liked them. They liked me too. I introduced you to my friends. You liked them. And they liked you too.

We’d go out to eat or drink or play. I always had fun when I was with you.

You invited me to your home. And for a time that felt like my home too.

I haven’t seen you in a while. And texts became rare. Calls even more rare.

Gone was the spark. That feeling of contentment. The closeness. And in that instant, I knew it was over.
