A Collection of Short Poems & Haiku’s by Melissa T. Longo


Dear My Love:

Laugh, my love
but not unkindly
for I know, you are a soul worthy of happiness

At times, I sense, I hear, a sigh that you’re unwinding,
Weaving the thoughts from within, time to move onwards!

Swiss Army Heart:

The Swiss of my Heart
Knife through the Gut
Tattooed on my timeless Tongue
How tough, rough
It out

Slow Down, Discomfort:

Hold on Love,
The heaviness of the Universe
Isn’t the same as it used to be…


Waiting for the proclaimed, the introduction:
I announce you…a Poetess!”

May we celebrate the Arts even more…

Haikus of Another Time:

And isn’t it true…
That emotions, such emotions!
Deliver greatness – Agility!

Auxiliary Cord,
Entanglement chases –

Substances causes
Downright…Abscesses – obscene
