Haiku Challenge for Nov. 9: ‘Taste’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

I taste the bitters
congregating on my tongue,
with no alcohol.

I taste tomorrow.
Repugnant, I puke up the
spoils of promise.

the memory taste
of you is like morning breath,
foul and lingering.

taste my memory
again, ignite your senses;
do you still not love?

depression has no
taste, or smell, or touch, or sound,
just sight of despair.

taste water, lap it
at 120 miles
per hour from the bridge.

Our love, like tasting
a snowflake, intense beauty,
but it’s gone too soon.

taste the rainbow, but
I was crushed under its weight —
a colorful death.

anxiety tastes
like a warhead in your mouth
and not the candy.

I taste victory,
but for depression, always
running the table.
