my girl talked too much
so I kissed her ruby lips
the silence was grand

This Haiku was inspired by the great old, depression-day, chuckle – “She wouldn’t kiss me in 
the canoe, so I paddled her back.”

away my boy joy

looks like refinement
from outside boiling pot in
cool calm big fat lie

her tears tear me up
along with the depression
pukes on everyone

away my boy joy
morphed from this to that kid to man
overnight success

The Black Butterfly

A Black Butterfly
A black mist glides off its wings
It is all alone

It is always sad
Never greeted with a smile
Black and Beauty don't mix

It can find no love
In a world of bright and free
It always feels the chains

The chains of anger
And of seeping depression
Butterflies can't cry 

A black butterfly
Flies away searching for a home
But it won't find one

But I will fly still
Hoping that things get better
Hoping not to fall

Hatred blooms 
As I hear of
All the things
That you did
To hurt me.

Hatred mingles
With anger
When you say you
Love me but
It's a lie.

Hatred turns to
Depression as
I hear of your hate,
Which leads to suicide
Notes with consequence.

Hatred ran hot
And then cold
As I stood on
The bridge with
A rope.
Last I jump
It's a long fall
Though it's the end
Of it all.
