Haiku From Tyler Knott Gregson

Three haiku verses from Tyler KnottGregson's forthcoming collection All The Words Are Yours: Haiku On Love.

I know not the when
or the why of all of this,
I just know it's you.


I breathe easier
with the weight of your body
lying on my chest.


I am broken down
and shattered into pieces.
You are still barefoot.
