Your warm carapace
compressed like lost lust found, a
hearth catching first flame.

Gripping mood, like the
chimney never lit, burns my
senses to black ash.

I can't believe that I actually inspired someone.......thanks Mckay, I'll use this as motivation. And it's okay, your cheesiness (if that's a word) made me laugh for a few minutes :)

Someone will always appreciate your work. That problem is finding that person. But no fear, I'm here. (Sorry that was just cheesy.) I do love this haiku. By the way, the word carapace did inspire me to write a poem recently.

Great imagery and alliteration here and there. The word "carapace" is one that I must use from now on. I especially love that last line.

Where there is desire, there is gonna be a flame,
Where there is a flame someone's bound to get burned.
Just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die,
You've got to get up and try.

Wow, this is truly beautiful. I love it
