Nice comparison. I never thought about that before.

Don't waste words. The image of you wearing your skin as your bones and the idea of unloved and content make the idea of a cockroach clear. You don't need the "just like a cockroach." Use the first line to further develop your ideas. Still, even keeping the first line as it is, this poem is phenomenal. The image that you've built, what you do with the implications of a cockroach and your ability to communicate all that in such few words is really, really good. I'm impressed. :)

This haiku is great,

very personal,

self-reflecting art.

(How many reviews do you get in haiku? :P It's very good. Keep writing :D)

Has a certain beauty to it. The contrast of contentedness and living 'just like a cockroach' makes this a piece to be remembered. Excellent job.

unloved and content

two very different things.

but it fit in the poem as a whole.

nice work.

Oh, wow, that is a fantastic haiku. Completely original and heartbreaking, and the images conjured up make me think. Wonderful work. Keep writing! :)

The second line is just gold. True and fitting and oh so cute.
