Haiku Challenge for Nov. 15: ‘Dark’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

dark doorstep, waiting
for your glow to arrive there.
Getting darker still.

the dark molasses
coalesces on my chest,
but never caving.

dark roots spread beneath
the ground — nefarious deeds
go undetected.

the dark entrails wrap
around my neck, warm embrace.
candy licorice.

dark clouds stuck in the
sky, unable to lose sight
of where I’m standing.

swan dive into dark
waters, gliding along like
a fish without gills.

pour the dark over
me, a baptism for a church
of one: depression.

the dark sits in the
corner taking notes, mumbling
its obscenities.

I was lost in the
light until the darkness came
to guide me back home.

dark under covers,
like a campfire in my bed
roasting memories.
