Haiku Challenge for Dec. 19: ‘Pick’

My actual dark curtains in my bedroom that I just took a photo of for this post. I used the noir filter.

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:

pick me up, please, watch
as the depression drips from
me like I’m melting.

pick from my garden;
all of the flowers are dead
and smell of decay.

pick from a lineup:
depression, anxiety
inadequacy.

she picked my heart once;
it aged until bruised leather —
the bite marks still there.

I smother myself
in my musty dark curtains
for a pick-me-up.
