the difference: four love haiku

the difference between

feeling a part and falling

apart is a word

*

the difference between 

being seen and understood

your eyes recognize

*

the difference between

being heard and being hurt 

is just a word

*

i still recognize

your eyes in mine, your smell on

me, your touch burns skin

Love, Actually: Four Haiku

something less like life

and more like this, the richness

of your soft brown skin

*

more like heartache, less

like heartbreak, the depths of which

i’d die to venture in

*

something more like soul

and less like woe, something i will

only hope to know

*

it wasn’t fair or

kind or nice or sweet, but it

was love, actually
