Longing in Three Haiku


if I saw you face
to face or kissed your stomach
ache away it would

change the dynamics
of our love and lives beyond
measure if only

my longing was mere
fantasy in my mind but
it’s real just like you

I dreamed of writing when I was a youngster. The love of books and writing may have helped to dull the pain of severe sexual abuse as I was sexually abused by two men at my father’s place of work from age 8 to 12 or so. I learned about this for the first time when I was 50 years old. So, as a boy, reading was the only place I had to go to. My fantasy world was better and safer than my real world. I loved reading and writing.
Reading books and writing poetry are a joy to me still and are an important part of my life. (See my About Me page on my blog for the complete profile.)

  1. Wow. Brilliant. I can’t remember the last time I tried to write haikus, it’s so complex but you made it look easy. Wow.
