The Fallout of Being Completely Open

(N.B.  Tilly bud was good enough to include the following with a comment:  Technically, you are writing senryu. The simplest way to know the difference is to remember this: haiku are about nature; senryu, the nature of man. It’s a broad categorisation, but helpful.  Thank you, Tilly Bud!)

Sad, I’ve lost some joy

Feel myself being dragged back

Into old conflicts

********

Asking for pardon

For not knowing where to stop

Not receiving it

*********

Understand.  No one

Can be perfect all the time

I made a mistake

********

Scolded, made to see

Consistent with old feelings

Some one will be hurt

    • I have neglected honesty with my dad altogether until last year, when I stopped lying to everyone. I just need to polish up that tact — I was very tactful when I was lying, which make it feel fake now. I’m working on it. I know you haven’t forgotten — absolutely no rush, no pressure. Thanks for your comment — it helps.

I love to read your thoughts...
