Paper Soul

Photobooth Journal

Paper Soul – Five Haiku by Rose Perez

You’ve nothing to say
In silence, you still taunt me
Quiet mockery

I stare back at you
A frozen smile strains your face
Love’s gone; there’s no trace

Limb by limb, I rip
*Raguel, I call onto thee
Set my vengeance free

Arms, legs, hands, and feet
My ex-lover’s confetti
Scattered piece by piece

You’ve broken my heart
Your paper soul I’ve now cleaved
I tear you from me

*Raguel is known as the Angel of Vengeance.

Rose Perez is the Poet Rummager. She extrudes then moulds the soul of an image, or idea, into thought provoking, emotional and memorable poems. Please visit her blog!

My apologies to Rose for not having acknowledged this piece sooner. It is based on a scrap of a photobooth photo which I found discarded in Melbourne, many years ago. Thank you Rose!
