Made to enrich lives,
A harmony of both spheres
pure delight to ears.

Evoke emotions---
an art form as old as time,
---through sound and silence.

♥ I've made mistakes in my life. i've let people take advantage of me, and i accepted way less than i deserve. But, i've learned from my bad choices, and even though there are some things i can never get back and people who will never be sorry. i'll know better next time and i wont settle for anything less than i deserve. ♥

Wow, this is inspirational. Thank you!

Great! I'm glad you liked it and understood its meaning. Some have told me that the poem is ambiguous, which I like---it adds to the mystery, but still I like that someone understood it first.

Thanks for commenting, and I was thinking the same thing when I wrote the line: "as old as time."

Thanks so much for commenting~ The whole double play on words, ambiguous meaning is on purpose--my way of messing with the audience. The real way to find out my poem's meaning is in the title:)

I love the fact that these are haikus! Excellent word choice and imagery. My only criticism is that these were a bit ambiguous.

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

Wow. I'm really impressed by how much can be expressed in a few words. It normally takes me a lot to write out something so complex. Well done.

Oh, I do like the last part, "through sound and silence." It's very true. And it sounds pretty too. I like it!
