A heart frozen stiff-
Melts not from smoldering rage;
Only by warm love.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Oh that is beautiful. Just mystifying. I don't know if mystifying is the accurate word, but I just got that vibe from this poem. Mystifying. Really nice. And PS I love how your title matches the pic. (:

Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.

A simple poem that says a lot. Very good haiku. 5 stars :)

Thou may think of me as desired, to idolize or villanize me whichever you may choose. but gaze upon me and thou sall not see the husk of a man! for all my sins and all my bliss, i am anything but hollow

I can't claim to be knowledgable in haikus, but the other aspects of it like flow, and word choice were well designed, and delicate

Gorgeous description! I love your comparison between warm love and smoldering rage; I think that's a beautiful way to put it. It's to the point and simple, the way poetry is meant to be. Awesome job! :)
