Haiku in the Dark
I can't fall asleep
I'm afraid I won't wake up
So I watch the clock


Why am I alive?
In bed, the question haunts me
I have no purpose


Do I sound morbid?
I'm not - I just need some light
The sunrise will help


I'll look to the east
Wait for the first rays of sun
There goes the alarm


It's time to get up
I've been awake long enough
Now I will sleepwalk

I hope that your haiku is just your way of dealing with insomnia. I hate that feeling of watching the clock, wanting to sleep, but knowing that the alarm will go off soon......

I get your groove. The last one sings a lament. Laughing helps.

Hey, I'll have you know a burrito takes care of all the needed things from the major food groups, especially when washed down with several brewsies.

I dream of the day
We come together as one
And ban all haiku...
