One Time Too Many- Senryu Strings II

One time too many
maximum number of hits 
heart in rebellion

Keep your own baggage
I can hardly carry mine
help me don't harm me

No way to go back
Heart in hibernation mode
Sweet oblivion

    These are very effective, I van relate. For me sleep is my hibernation mode, things really do look better in the morning.

    The exhaustion of a heart, lost patience, too many bruises, I know this too Eileen. Every time I try to tuck my heart to sleep, it cries, yells, and fights to taste more battle, more love.My heart is a light sleeper, I guess my heart can sleep when its dead : ) Justin

    I love all your three senryu but my favourite is the second one-Sad but guess life has to have its sad moments to make us appreciate that sweet oblivion in tomorrow.Love love them.

    Dear Eileen, It's so sad to think of a heart in "hibernation mode," but I'm right there with you. The middle verse is amazing. Indeed, "Keep your own baggage." People want mates who are baggage-free, but they carry a lot of their woes with them wherever they go. Excellent poem! Love, Carolyn
