April Poem-a-Day Challenge, Day 21

1 Comment

Prompt: Write a senryu (17-syllable poem about the human condition)

Senryu X 3

After the breakup
you realize the truth–
you chose this misery

Hope is a bucket
with a hole in the bottom
I carry around


Trust is a bone
I hold onto like a dog
baring all of its teeth
