Haiku – Lightning & Rain

Haiku – Lightning & Rain


As lightning struck 

a match, Rain carefully washed…

dirt, failure, regret


I tried so hard

And went so far

Changed strategies

Sucked life out of the tears

Jumped over despair

And scraped through the darkness

And went so far…

But here I am, yet again

Back in the perpetual loop

Walking in circles

Still trying

Trying to break the trajectory…and fly off in a tangent.
