Carpe Diem: Daily Haiku 58

remember antm cycle 4? on one episode, everyone posed as embodiments of the “seven sins”


A fading beauty
Learns too late that vanity
Makes a cold bed mate.

Not even angels
Are immune to its poison
Cup of vainglory.

And so down he drowns
In a river of tears shed
By lovers he spurned.

Checked his reflection
In every mirror we passed
Our first AND last date.

Word for today: Vanity

last haiku true story haha — couldn’t resist it. i’ve dated peacocks, true but by far that one’s the most
