haiku #13116

death waits for no one-
afterwards it’s slow going
an eternity

The Look

bekkiesmagwrite302The Look

Your chestnut eyes like X-rays
penetrating my clothes
piercing through my skin
to my very bones.

You make my marrow burn
my blood boil
my heart beat out of control
like a cancer, invading my very essence.

If you’d only asked
I would have revealed myself freely
but this capture
without a touch.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Inevitable Hump

The Inevitable Hump

Fall has fell with a thump
my mood remains in a slump
my ego is bruised with a bump
I’ve become an unreasonable grump.

My hair hangs bunched in a clump
these days I look more like a frump
I need to move outta this dump
I feel like a second-rate chump.

If I were insane I might jump
as my life has resembled a sump
but I can’t lay around like a lump
I must leap this inevitable hump.
