RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #44 Charge & Lovers

I have been on vacation and have missed the last two weeks of Haiku. I fear I am quite out of practice. Ron gave us some hard words this week too! Here is my humble offering… a bit on the dark side:

“Dark Lovers”

An onslaught of hate –

filling my weak heart with dread,

lovers no longer.

Thanks for popping in! I am always glad to see you. Until next time,

    1. Elizabeth, thanks, although it is not one of my best. I just could not wrap any other feelings around those words. I think I am out of practise. 😦


    1. Mark, you are just sweet. I have no idea where this stuff comes from. Sometimes it just pours out of me. I had a hard time with the words. My husband says I am all sweet, etc. and then look out! LOL! Hate is such a strong word.


        1. Well, Mark thank you for such an apt description of me. And, I am an Aries to boot! LOL! You made my day! 😀 ❤


    1. Thank you, Vashti. It was dark. Ah, next week we will have new words. These were rough for me this week. ❤


  1. It’s always good to do something quite different… I don’t think you’re out of practice at all, Colleen. Excellent!


    1. It was. I think I was in a dark mood. Tired from my vacation. That provokes different feelings and words. I am better this week. 😀
