A Poem by Speak in Silence

13 nights, 13
days, 13 more lies before
she turns in her grave.

Author's Note

Speak in Silence
I was watching TV when I thought about this. I saw some commercial and it said something about the number 13. I thought about and then wrote it down in my notebook, thinking I might use it latter. The next day I got to looking at it and found out it was a haiku. So hope ya like it :)

I agree with Legolas. It is well written and is eerie, yet also sends a clear message; something will happen in 13 days. I love it, and I don't usually like haikus!

Aw thank you :)
Great haiku. It has a haunting feeling to it. So much said in so few words. Good job.

For a random pour out of poetry this is wonderful! But I have to admit, it reminds me of a trailer for a movie or something and I keep thinking, so where's the rest of the story!! =)
Awesome Ink!

That's cool that this turned out to work as a haiku/senryu unintentionally. :) I find it really intriguing - it makes me want to know a little bit more about the backstory. It's still very cool standing alone, though!

Whatever you choose to do with it, I think it works very well. :)

(I don't know if you know anything about it, but this seriously makes me think of the TV series Pretty Little Liars) :P

thank you :) lol I have never really watched that show before :P
They are three great lines but Im confused. Is this all? That is what I think when I read this. Haiku's are a bit tricky due to how short they must be, I understand, but these lines sound like part of a story. Mustn't leave the audience in such fashion, Miss May I Murder. Or perhaps I am missing something and if I am please let me know.

wow. Such an intense poem packed into three lines! I loved this because it didn't read like a Haiku (an usually I'mvery skepticalof those). Very very well done! Its stated so casually that you feel the darknessand sorrow and stress that makes her want to dies just waiting to rumble up! Loved it
