Here are some Love and Anti-Love poems I have written:

LOVE POEMS

ancient static

can’t stop
the
signal

forgotten radios
with
ancient static

memories
in
haiku
(ancient static)

stanzas of sad
(ancient static)

my
secret frequency
remembers you
unwillingly
unflinchingly

unending
resolve bending
request pending


ANTI LOVE POEMS

Stanzas of Sad
by Valeri Beers

You  yelled  
while stuffing
your backpack  
the night
you left.

You whispered
it would
only be
a
few days
while walking
away
from me.

I
couldn't sleep,
saw
the
gray light
of
morning
turn bright.

Watching
tv alone
was painful
so
I
wrote
&
cried.

Circus Love by Valeri Beers

I taste

sticky sweet

cotton candy

kisses

 

I smell

hay

popcorn

smoke

animals

 

I see

lions lined up

I hear

trainer shouting

whip cracking

 

I sneak

stares

at you,

and feel

the same

excitement

&

uncertainty

when

I see

the acrobats

fly so high

 

my heart has no net

Road construction

or Road Work for you Stephen King  fans.   Where I live there is a major road and there is a  lot of road construction   I was inspired to write this haiku while waiting:

Untitled

the
endless long
wait

red orange
stop slow
stop go

smoothness
is worth
it
