haiku retrospective xx

i used to write you,
heart writing to my own soul.
unbroken mirror.

you used to hold me
heart the light half of your soul.
hand fits perfect glove.

word blows land squarely,
soul fist smashes my heart's curve.
crumpled glove in dust.

apologies later.
smooth snake oils troubled water,
soul's mirror of lies.

circle of prison
hold heart pawn to soul's pattern.
unseen reflection.

soul's eyes flashed anger,
heart's soul's lips formed fantasy.
lies the fortress' gate.

soul's mirror shattered.
you watched the ravening wolves,
heart's carrion feast.

17 October 1987
