very interesting imagery. good use of almost every syllable in the haiku - maybe something better than the would be available. I love the concept of "shell casings of love"

thank you for your review of my senryu, Dargan.

Life, love, leaveso me scars that never heal, serving as proof one has both lived fully and loved despera tely. Your senryu -r intended or not - meant as a lasting reminder of what we have to endure to feel alive. S wimming teaches more about survival than mere paddling..

Fine, fine writing.. ambitious in brevity but.. precious.

They say; 'the first cut is the deepest' The wound may heal but the scar remains - great poetical reflections of past hurt ... :-)

It's those scars that hurt...even after they have healed.

I raised my father's WW2 veteran's flag this summer. A package of bullet casings ,from bullets shot at his military funeral, were enfolded in the flag. Your poem stunningly, starkly and metaphorically describes the remnants of a bad love affair, however it reminded me of my father's bullet casings. Moving write.

With such a small amount of words I can imagine a whole outlaw love story here.

Nicely done as always!

No worries
Apparently, Cupid has graduated to firearms--probably most utilized towards the end of a love affair.
Creatively portrayed!

Lost loves heal eventually but will reopen on occasions with certain smells, sounds or sights that remind you of that person.
