Haiku Challenge for Oct. 6: ‘Drop’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

you drop me like I’m
rubber, able to absorb
but I’m glass fragile.

drop it, that’s what they
tell me, drop the memories,
and the time with you.

drop me into the
abyss, let me roam free from
the pain of living.

drop me onto the
dark cloud, and I’ll float along,
drifting from this life.

you drop me like I’m
too heavy to carry now,
and I think the same.

you drop me like I’m
scolding your hands, tearing at
the flesh you have there.

you drop me and look
at me like you’ll never pick
me back up again.

drop drop, like a drip;
when you think it’s over, there’s
much more left to give.

drop into my life
one more time, with those brown eyes —
my withering dreams.

I would drop it all
for you, if you called me, but
the phone won’t ring here.
