Haiku for 4/1

A whiff of shampoo
Takes me back a year or more
A pained heart lies not

Tell Me Not

Tell me not of heartache
Cured by a single apology
Cured by swallowing pride
Cured by telling the truth

Tell me not of pain
Cured by a single kiss
Cured by human change
Cured by humor

Tell me not of hate
Cured by listening
Cured by letting go
Cured by exchange

Tell me not of love
Cured by ‘a better one’
Cured by monetary troubles
Cured by death

Don’t Love Me

Don’t love me
I can’t dance
I have two left feet
I fall all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t sing
I am always too loud
I cry all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t run
I collapse after a lap
I faint all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t stay
I lust over anyone I see
I lie all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t live
I hurt everyone else before
I hurt all the time
