Haiku Friday: Third Degree. A haiku.

Third Degree
Caustic heart branding
third degree burns on my soul.
Tell me again—why?

Haiku is a Japanese poetic form with a strict 5/7/5 syllable and line structure.

I write a lot of poems, some from my head, some from my heart. Many don’t appear on this website. For more of my poetry, check out The All or the Nothing, my first e-book, available at most online book sellers.

  1. Glad my poetry gets you thinking! That’s what all poems should do. Nothing should ever be straightforward. Every poem should make you work for meaning. That way the payoff is so much better in the end. 🙂
