Winning “Haiku”

with each victory

a little death,

killing me softly

 

the razor of pride

cuts so deep

severing my heart

 

my Soul it weeps

grey the mirror

I am now Dorian

 

a painted facade

shiny to others

it hides my haunting

 

so much reason

and so many lies

I become numb

 

my trophies hang

heads on a stick

winner takes all!!
