Haiku Challenge for Dec. 17: ‘Bother’

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:

sorry to bother
with my obsequious love.
I need a new kind.

bother you for love,
like I’m an obstruction to
reroute your life path.

depression bothers —
wiggles into the brain to
join the other worms.

to be bothered is
empathy, tethered to life
rather than free range.

I’m unmoored from life
floating through pain vestibules
bothering no one.
