"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song." - Maya Angelou


By the light of the
Silvery October moon
You pull me to your

Hip, my face is red
From nervousness and running.
“Do you want to?” You

Ask, any other
Night I'd say no easily.
But I'm not thinking

Straight tonight and you're
Charming, nice but not handsome
No, no but I lean

In anyway, and for
A first kiss it's pretty
Terrible, your lips

Are like a suction
Cup, when you pull away I'm
Rejoicing inside.


The author's comments:
Sadly, this was inspired by a real event, my terrible first kiss. However, the best written pieces, are inspired by the worst events, so I guess some good came from it.

The title made me think that the poem would be about fall or Halloween, but I like it. :)

I like it very much. From the title "October Nights", I thought it would be about the wickedness and mischief that occurs on Halloween. But I'm happy to say that I was unexpectedly surprised.

This a interesting way to make many hiakus come together and for a very good story. Very nice work.

I'm amazed by the way you were able to tell a story through haikus. They blended perfectly. I'm alright at individual haikus, and even collections of them, but I can't put them all together like that. Good work!
