Haiku mushiness...

This week's haiku contest topic is LOVE.

I got on a bit of a roll with this one.
I submitted five...

Betrayal kills love
as surely as a promise
brings it back to life.

***

It's like an old quilt,
worn, still holding together.
Providing comfort.

***

Love escapes again.
Perhaps it was never here.
Spent, I close the door.

***

lessons never learned
in a book of broken heart.
fail'd the test again.

***

My boobs are sagging.
Your ears are sprouting gray hairs.
Turn the light out, dear.

Sparrow changed the deadline to 10 p.m. tonight.
Hurry, hurry, hurry!

I think they're all winners Jeannie, especially "Love escapes again...", I can certainly relate to that one! And yes, 'Spent', oh how spent I am, I have certainly shut the door or has it closed on me? :)
