Please excuse the comma splices, tense changes, verbosity, etc. I was just a youngin' and now I realize the error of my grammatical ways. Plus, I preferred the flowery and descriptive writing styles of the early 19th century and beyond rather than the short, journalistic post-Hemingway-style of writing. I love intense imagery and descriptions in general. Still deciding whether I should edit my old poetry for grammar mistakes or take the Beatnik approach and fuck it.

Disclaimer: I only wrote/write on bad days. Grand days have never inspired me enough to write as I've always used writing as an outlet. A majority of my poetry is angsty, dark humored, or depressing, however, I don't have depression, and I'm not self-destructive or suicidal by any means. My writing is mostly a tenfold representation of the kind of day I was having at the time. Embellishing the realities of my bad days on paper helped turn them into good days. Not sticking my head into an oven anytime soon (or ever, actually). :P +10 points if you got the reference.

Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment

The Sense's Haiku Collection


Eyes view the whole world,
The world around us is viewed,
Even to the blind.


Ears hear everything,
The never-ending grapevine,
Even to the deaf.


Touching and holding,
The textures throughout the world,
Those closest to you.


Taste-test everything,
sweet, bitter, salty delights,
The Taste bud Dreamland.


Smell the sweet flowers,
Smell the not-so-pleasant trash,
Smells are everywhere.

You don't have many words with a haiku so try not to repeat anything in them, try to make every line unique and important. They're not bad but they could be better.
