Love

Four haiku

I

Closer than each breath,
For you I look everywhere:
Where are you hiding?

II

Here I mourn and fast
Yet behind the veil my love
Waits for me, naked.

III

Possessing you, I
Shall not be me but you -
Who will then be I?

IV

To express my love
In seventeen syllables?
Too few! Too many.
