In the time since you left my
Hair has grown longer and lighter than
It ever did when it was wrapped in your hands
I’ve been kissed by faceless lovers against medieval walls, under
Stained glass windows, doused with prosecco from greedy mouths
Laid myself bare in the Mediterranean sun
The adventures you once swore we would take
I took, I didn’t wait, I scrubbed the tattoo
We got from my skin and covered it with another
Expunged the wicked taste your tongue left behind and
Found solace in the knowledge that even
After all this time, it’s my laughter dancing
Endlessly through your mind

I want everything
and all at once, I never
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 230.”
It isn’t that I
miss you (I do)… it is a
deep, soul-wrenching ache.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 221.”
Making up for lost
time, reclaiming moments that
slipped through our fingers.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 206.“
All the baggage I
carry. All the ways I wish
I could put it down.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 197.”
On nights like this I
sit and let the sadness flow
through me like a wave.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 196.”
consumed by thoughts of
you; appetite reaching a
crescendo in sheets.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 195.”
Nails scratch down your arms,
tattooed, the roses must have
a tangible scent.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 191.”
She collects lovers
shamelessly, like trinkets meant
to be stored away.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 189.”
You used to tremble
Against me like just the sight of
Goosebumps on my bare flesh was
Electrifying enough to set your nerves on edge
You had to be nervous, if
Your hands could speak
They would have left whispers
On my hips, a lover’s kiss
Remember the ninth of September?
You told me you loved me
Under the covers, mid-sentence
I hadn’t felt that way before
(I never have since)
