Senryu of the Broken Heart
By D. E. Allen

Love has gone away.
My heart is deeply wounded.
Death would be welcome.

Beautiful weather?
The sunshine has no meaning.
Darkness lets me sleep.

I feel abandoned.
Television is a bore.
My world is empty.

Meet some new people.
Love will come to me again.
Are you kidding me?

My soul is sleeping.
I prefer to let it rest.
Come back tomorrow.

  1. Senryu and Haiku are the same form, (5,7,5 syllable count) but Senryu is about human emotion, where Haiku is about nature.
