Lovebreak (5 Haikus)

This frost of your breath
Twirling, twisting on my tongue
Wouldn’t let me rest, love.

Anesthetize me
Snippets of your cold embrace
We’ve run out of flames.

Mercy! If you can,
I’m already withering,
Accelerate, please.

Is that blood we wear?
Is our love already dead?
Have we chewed it off?

It is the dead-end,
It is where our love succumbs.

After being away from writing poems, I’m really finding it hard to tame my thoughts. Please bear with me for rough edges. I’m hoping to come out of it soon.
