i think when compliments stop meaning anything to someone, it's time for that person to just die.

please don't erase it.
scrawl it on scratch paper tucked
under your pillow.

then in your dreams they'll
raise wilted heads, saying: 'we
were only playing.'

...That is unbelievable.

Without a doubt, that is the best haiku I have ever read. I remember saying that for someone else's haiku. I retract it most apologetically, because the best is now this.

This is incredible.

This is beautiful.

Don't you delete it.
