    3- rhyme scheme for poem is ababcdede

    her husband had died, tears flowed high tide
    alone was she, suddenly
    so empty inside
    abruptly
    then
    a surprise
    a life was growing
    a piece of her husband thrived
    heartbreak gone, ultimate blessing

    What should I hold on to
    The "I love you forever"
    That plagues my mind
    Or the "goodbye"
    You left behind

    Transcend

    If I met my end
    If I just dwelled in darkness
    Could darkness transcend
    Would you caress my shadow
    And make darkness, light again

    Sun sets as skies fade
    Trees dream of Autumn splendor
    Dusk yawns last days breeze

    Look Close

    If someone painted me, a mirror reflection
    Would I be a DaVinci, with Divine proportions
    Would I be a Picasso, with cubism distortions
    Or perhaps a unique masterpiece combination
    If I'm smiling, disguised in a state of elation
    Look deep into my eyes, for that touch of depression

    The moment I realized words persuade
    The reader to witness art on a page
    The moment I realized a void in me
    Drop by drop being filled with ease
    The moment I realized a snapshot of guilt
    Being swept away by what someone else had felt
    The moments that truly broke my heart
    When another's love decided, from them to part
    The moments that I, over and over savored
    When realizing a peers, perception of nature
    The moments that I read, all this wonder before me

    Were the times that I realized poetry

    A collab with my Mirakee BFF
    We're all so blessed
    Because of her presence
    We wanted to show you, some gratitude
    So here's an alphopp from the Queen
    And of course, a Haiku, for all you, from me

    Treat you as

    Trying times when feeling afflicted

    Spent my time
    In a coceptual abyss
    Stretched my mind
    To fathom what "is"
    And what do I find
    It's all about consciousness
    Cause at the end of the line
    No reality exists
    At any space or time
    Until we experience it
