Haiku - Katrina


is it love, when first
you see someone accross the
street you forever

loose any semblance
of strength to distance yourself
from the one you see

is it fatal pride
utter hubris distancing
yourself from loved one

to prove to yourself
that you have the strength to do
things that "must" be done

is it right to let
the one you love pass through your
hands again, twice struck

would i had married
you, accepting the small cost
of time spent away

discarded the one
that misfortune had me wed
for the second chance

now you have someone
else wed, when my soul echos
only to your name

in the empty parts
of my shattered, lonely soul
with scant room for her

would that i could have
understood the screams of my
heart-ache calling you
