Don't Care For This Game No More (haiku string)
by Anne Engelen
Left, barely alive
Bleeding invisible tears
Behind my smile
A perfect angel
In someone elses heaven
Lost in my own hell
God, when will you stop?
I dont want to play no more
Hide-and-seek , Im through
Am I too human
To see the wonder of You?
Let us both grow up

Love the genius irony in the second stanza... perfect. If each stanza is a haiku, then could they be called stanzakus? Great verse.

This is amazing; I'm full of awe. "a perfect angel in someone else's heaven" "bleeding invisible tears" Absolutely incredible.

Well, this expresses what is, impregnant with what should be. I read hopes. But I can also see past playing its game, causing doubts.
