#352 of 365 – 5 Haiku

5 Haiku

 

 

so many years my

secrets tunneling out of

my drunken silence

 

 

so hungry, my dreams

thirsting for my days, eating

away at my nights

 

 

driving by, I speed

from danger; look away from

bright casino lights

 

 

 

slumber chases me

spiking my evening with naps

till it’s time to sleep

 

 

she stalks me, pulls at

my eyelids; then runs away

when I call for her
