Music Monday: More Haikus

I’m back with more haikus!

Some years ago I realized that many of the lyrics in songs I was listening to had 5 and 7-syllable phrases — perfect for haikus! So I mixed and matched them to create some new poems.

I felt like trying out this poetry style again as I’ve been listening to several new songs lately so I had many lyrics to choose from in creating more musical haikus. You can check out the other poems I’ve created from song lyrics in the haiku tag!


I had lost my faith

How it seems so far away

But not less confused

~~~

You’ve seen me dancing

But baby watch me freak out

When the sun goes down

~~~

When I’m without you

She’s screaming inside of me,

‘Live in fear of truths’


This bunch is somewhat nonsensical but a couple of them made me laugh (especially that dancing one)! It’s always fun to play around with songs, and even if the poems don’t end up making much sense I still get to showcase some great lyrics.
