Roses lined the paths
Everyone else took, but we
Met by quiet lakes

Evenings spent giggling –
My laughs echoed on your skin
Bare in summer heat

“Ends come to all things.”
Reminding me of that, you
Took my hand and begged

Of me, “Remember,
Far into the bleak future,
Our time of being.”

Request accepted.
Great, but I would not of you
Ever ask the same

Today, I think on
My fate alone, a ghost to
Everyone and you

This is really deep; I love how you wrote haikus but made it into a story of a kind.  Love it!

I write my life in ink, that way i can still remember the good things, and yet i can never erase my mistakes.

Remember to forget me! I thought this was a happy(ish) haiku but now is the deeper-underlined-meaning! Great job!

Whoa. The title drew me in, the writing held me to it, and then the realization that it was acrostic blew me away. Lots of people can put meaning in their stuff, but very few can add that true wit.

This is incredible! It's so beautiful, it makes my heart skip a beat :) Every word is perfectly placed.

It would be an honor to know what you think of mine?

I like it but I don't believe it is a haiku because haikus have a 5-7-5 syllable structure and this does not follow that. But it was a great story.
