Haiku Challenge for Oct. 16: ‘Bundle’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

depression bundle:
overeating and sleeping —
anxiety, too.

depression bundle:
not taking care of yourself,
wondering alone.

depression bundle:
a bit of spiraling with
awareness of it.

I’m a bundle of
blankets, I’ll come apart with
ease; nothing inside.

I’m a bundle of
clothes, tattered and headed to
Goodwill, with will gone.

I’m a bundle of
once-strong fading memories
of what we once had.

I’m a bundle of
longing and regret waiting
to metastasize.

bundle me up like
the love letters you don’t read
anymore. Ink fades.

sunrises bundle with
sunsets, suffocating all
of us between them.

bundle me with the
trash heap, and I’ll sleep the days
away at the dump.
