There Is No Saving Grace

The Moon Howls At The Wolf

Four haiku's about how we have no control over what happens to us, just how we react to circumstances. The themes include "been", "time", "hunger" and "nails".


No comprehension

Just empty space where she laid

And my falling tears


At all intervals

We are never happy with

This man-made concept


The cabinets lock

The fridge is chained each day

Nothing's on my plate


You nail me up here,

Leave me to asphyxiate,

And expect saving?

Author's Note: Written on September 9th 2011 at 11:00 pm. It's been a hard first week of classes, and poetry is a comfort that I find is actually a luxury I can't afford during the week. Hope you guys enjoyed the themes, and please review! Also, would you rather I write short little poems like these or full blown single stories like prior to this? Thank you!
