Haiku Challenge for Oct. 7: ‘End’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

How can so short a
word as end be what brings two
titans like us down?

what do I do when
I keep replaying the end
over and over?

our end wasn’t abrupt,
relationships never are;
the zombie couple.

you tossed ‘end’ to me
like I was supposed to get
this killing virus.

end over end, I’ve
been falling ever since you
stopped falling for me.

end to end, line my
insides full of pain, and I
could reach a dark moon.

depression whispers
end it, like the liar it
is, but it sounds sweet.

depression whispers
end it every day to me;
siren song grows numb.

what would the end be
like? would you transition from
darkness to darkness?

write the ending of
my life story, I have no
more ink to spill now.
