Haiku Challenge for Dec. 4: ‘Splash’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

splashing around in
my own body, drowning, with
no rescues coming.

splash in depression’s
rancid water pools to feel
alive for a time.

splash in depression
where nobody notices
the droplets you spew.

splash reality
into my eyeballs, please, so
I can see anew.

splash reality
into my face, scald me with
the truth of what’s there.

anxiety splash:
worries emanating every
direction inward.

anxiety splash,
where fear runs over the brim
of your skin, puddling.

I splash in the blood
of my broken heart, waiting
for you to return.

I cry to splash in
the tears of heartache like a
masochist to love.

consider, most of
us only ever make our
life splash when we die.
