Haiku Challenge for Sept. 4: ‘Just’

Today’s haiku challenge:

My style is the five/seven/five syllable structure. Here are my 10 haiku poems:

just leave me alone
nothing left to offer you;
You have destroyed me.

just … just, we all hang
on the meaning of that word,
But it owes nothing.

just love me, why is
that so hard for you to do?
I’m unlovable.

just leave me a piece
of you to remember you
by — I’ll cherish it.

I’m just something left
in the past you’ve moved on from.
Who am I to you?

just drop me off at
the graveyard, I’m already
there anyway, right?

“Just leave the lights on,”
the darkness said to the sun.
“I’m scared of the dark.”

the lion just wants
to take a little nap, please.
For your sake, let him.

“One more flower,” the
bee said. “I have much to give.”
Buzz … just one more time.

The bear just stopped by
to try some of our porridge.
Not an angry bear.
