Haiku Challenge for Oct. 4: ‘Even’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

even now, all this
time later, I think of you;
when will you recede.

even odd, we matched,
swimming fate’s tide, unaware
of the erosion.

even together
we were apart, seeing the
world different ways.

even your equal,
I never measured up to
your expectations.

even good times felt
like a prelude to the bad.

even depression
allows for the good days, but
they’re always fleeting.

even depression
can kill; not teenage angst or
something to ‘man up.’

even the cloud took
a day off, floating away,
letting the sun come.

even the bee was
scared of other stingers, so
he kept his distance.

even the lion
fears at least one enemy:
the weak, armed human.
