Speaking with Conviction. Haiku Death Match!

John OMallen (@omallen) 10 years, 5 months ago

happiness haiku set

in truth, happiness
exists far from liqour store
and yet further still

not in form of pill
nor herb or fungus, you see
just live, you dumbass

or enlightened one
for within hobbies lie joy
and yet further still

I love to test people,
with writing challenges so
here- write a haiku.

Who can come up with
the most incredible and
intelligent poem?

*I wanted to speak
with a conviction so I
murdered with my tongue.

Drink to the H-bomb
beneath folding branches of
mechanical trees.

My exhausted head
sweat-drenched tomato splatters
upon granite soil.

A twelve to three ratio:
Shaved aluminum and rust-
thermite can be fun.

Applying a face
and reading from a script; writ

Want to come alive

start feeling by breathing in

new mentalities.

What was I thinking?
It made me feel unsettled.
What’s on the tv?

let my words pierce you
my voice becomes prevalent
inspirational

the tongue is the knife
letting bliss in when kissing
lets fucking make out

Everytime I write,
I’d leave a piece of my soul;
Though I’m a Ginger.

Off in fake fantasy land

Countles wasted days
Saving the fantasy worlds
With crystals and swords

I have leveled up
I am no longer a boy
who plays videogames

Arguing in poem,
summary of the conflict,
compressed condensed hate.

A haiku of love,
Understanding compassion;
Too short like a kiss.

Beautiful moonlight,
shimmering in the night sky,
its glow ominous;
seeking it’s own peace,
It forever surrounds us,
wishing for it’s match.

I’m not that very good

But nether-the-less I will try

Is this a haiku?

[Hidden]
Manimal (2,998) (@manimal) 10 years, 5 months ago ago

That’s not a haiku
Five syllables, then seven,
then five, that’s the way

Kristian (81) (@lordcat) 10 years, 5 months ago ago

Alas I was wrong

thought it was eight not seven

I guess I added it wrong
