haiku collection

I thought i knew him

battered eyes, glasses shoved up

carefree with a smile. 


But I didn't know

Depression had it's claws deep

Pain showed in his eyes. 


He was too weary

Shut away his heart, buried

his pain from us all. 


He wears a smile

Carefree attitude, none of 

those troubles that had plagued him. 


I don't know what happened

But it's him again, the man

I knew, the man who does.
