The source of my pain

No medicine man could find

I thought you loved me

Cupid’s arrow stung

He completely missed the source

I thought I would die


“Hey, Cupid? Yeah. It’d be really nice if next time you shot both of us!” I found this hilarious statement on Tumblr and thought it would go perfect with my theme.


Do you ever think about the one that got away? Have you ever experienced unrequited love? Have you ever been stalked by someone (or stalked someone)?

    I read the first and the second and felt first one was better. Then i read again. Second looked much better.
    They both together make a deep story! Awesome!
    Nice ones… 🙂

    Outstanding, Vashti! I love the Chinese symbol for love in the center. 🙂 Great writing for just three lines each!

    I liked the second line a lot!

    As for relationships, when you are young it seems that some poor judgment comes into play now and then. Hopefully you learn and you can do better later. Well, it is supposed to be that way!

    Sigh, I think we all get this at some point.

    I think Cupid should have his eyes checked, judging by some of the things that go on… Great haikus, Vashti!

      Ha, ha, ha! I think you’re right. “Para los gustos se hicieron los colores.” I guess everyone has the right to their personal preferences but sometimes it’s hard to find the logic in some the choices. 🙂 ❤

    I agree with oganm. Maybe Cupid is due for an eye check. Or maybe more target practice.

      Ha, ha! A bit of both, I think. Maybe the point of his arrows need sharpening. 😉

    All three of the Haikus work brilliantly to tell a story everyone can relate to. We can each fill in our own details…and your questions are the perfect prompts to help do so.

      Hi Melissa! Thank you very much. I found the third statement on the bottom on Tumblr and thought it was funny and cute and it also went well with the theme I was going for. 🙂 xx

        I wasn’t mislead into thinking you wrote it– the firstcovers.com is obvious. Just brilliant and clever that the syllable count makes it a Haiku and it fits perfectly with your two wonderful Haiku and image. I always look forward to your creativity. Xx

    The three Haikus are strong, deep and complex – Each of them stands for a specific meaning….amazing…

    I really love this, Vashti! I love the pain portrayed at the first few lines of the haiku. 🙂
