Betrayal


Star-crossed lovers meet ;
eyes betray secrets of heart - 
broken dreams, lost love.

*********************************

Blank eyes, bleeding heart 
hurt picking up shattered shards - 
broken trust mirror.

  2. Mm I like these, they are clever and can be read at different levels. Was her bleeding heart hurt by caring too much for others who were not worthy of her love I wonder?

  6. I loved the set of haiku..first one in which you have talked about eyes betraying heart, and the second one about breaking trust mirrior, painful yet profound, loved the analogy.
