#OctPoWriMo Day 2-Vulnerability

For Day 2 of the poetry challenge we are to write about being vulnerable or what makes us feel vulnerable using either Haiku or Lannet. Since I wrote a loose Kyrielle for Day 1 I thought I’d do Haiku today. Haikus are supposed be about nature/seasons but I used the form rather than the traditional definition. However, I did use a nature aspect to describe a verbal attack.

Fear, Emotion, Anxiety, Vulnerability, Exposure, Angst

Toxic vapors spread-

The wound is open and bare

-My heart lies broken

Ill words rob the strong

-The serpent’s bite is deadly-

I die as he leaves.
