He Lives

He Lives



His eyes were hollows of madness
His lips drawn tight in pain
He lives only in sadness
He dreams – no never again.

Tor

Not sure I get your Haiku -

winter breaths a sigh - Breathes

a dream. I vow
never again to
love, never again to
be lost in the soft glow of
orange light where love does grow and
confound, bringing only confusion.

Dark, sulphurous, shadows
leaping high on walls lit
by firelight,

weaves deep within her.

Madeline, do it now,
