Haiku Challenge for Dec. 15: ‘Show’

Today’s haiku challenge:

My style is the five/seven/five syllable structure. Here are my five (yes, I’m still doing five!) haiku poems:

I show you my scars
watch as they blossom into
pain petals for you.

I show you the dark
cloud, still unseen, you dance in
its downpour; I freeze.

depression show and
tell: cranium, listen as
it thumps in protest.

depression show and
tell: my dead shadow, waiting
for the rest to come.

I show my heart on
a sleeve; now a tourniquet
holding it all in.
