Haiku’s At The End Of A Relationship - Poem by Gert Strydom

You want more freedom
but your voice rasps in your throat,
as closing prison.

Now my life falls down
into fields of existence,
a bolt of lightning.

Bad people like you
stink of a panic-stricken belly
could kill any childhood.

Didn’t your parents
sort you out some bloody years ago
from childish disorders?

Pain is worthless now
let us acknowledge courage,
fermented hatred.
