Four Haikus by Constance Mello

When I awake I 

Like to think about us two 

Alone forever

Sweetest saccharine 

Inside your mouth I lose my

Self hour after hour

Diet Coke kind of 

Love. I remember the taste 

Turn bitter from sweet 

Blossom petal thought 

Is it happening again? 

The spring idea
