What could this here be?
When will the prisoners breathe?
Freed from iron bars.

Trying hard, failing.
This life is not for me, no.
Let me try again.

I just got home now.
Still fatigued and need a bath.
Why am I on this?

The rebirth of one
Soul's keeper rolling the die
Bringing life or death

The person within,
Following, he imitates,
I call him Shadow.

Murasaki, these are haikus(is that the right word?) in memories of characters I made up and write about. I hope you like them!

Marsk
Your kind sacrifice
Restores the hope inside me;
I won't forget you.

She's a character who is constantly giving up her own comforts for someone else's benefit, until she makes the ultimate sacrifice. I think you can guess what that is.

Alison
I find you haunting
Stalking my dreams and my guilt
Threatens to consume.

She was killed when she was a young woman. This haiku is from the killer's point of view.

Danny
My knight in armor
Your sword of truth, held up high,
Shines light around me.

You can tell he's a cool person.

Arleta
Like a thorny rose
Delicate and beautiful
Dangerous to foes.

That really says it all... beautiful, but if you are evil, beware.

This one doesn't really have any specific person that it's referring to...
I think.

Empty as a shell
After it is abandoned
Where has the life gone?

And this one is for a story plot I'm considering, but I haven't decided any names yet.

You lie where you fell
I stare at your sacrifice
Forgive my slowness.

I'm considering a storyline with a plot to kill one character. So another character who is a good friend of the planned victim gets there first.
And the planned victim comes and finds their friend lying dead, and that haiku was from their point of view.

Sorry about the morbid ones!

You've probably figured out I like to write stories.

Murasaki, I liked your haikus and I hope you like mine!

Oh, and... if you want to see Marsk, go to the game Princess Dress-up where I managed to get a pretty good representation of her. I left a comment, follow my instructions and see if you like her! She's actually a lot more beautiful than the picture.

Again, I hope you like my haikus!
And I hope that's the right word.

Snowmen in the field
Silent, steady, strong and brave.
At least until spring.
