Freedom, Not Terror


Orphaned by their war.

I rebel for my people.

Freedom, not terror.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #137, 6/19/2018 (This poem was inspired by the protagonist in my second novel who struggles with his sadness and anger over the death of his parents caused by the Iraq war. I’m editing the first draft.) –

Time Fades Memories.


Time fades memories.

I grasp my pictures of you.

Don’t take them away.

My Pretty Stranger


My pretty stranger.

You dance to a song I play.

Fast forward to us.

You Paint My Blues Pink


You paint my blues pink.

And shelter me from my pain.

Art from your kind heart.

Confined In My Mind


Confined in my mind.

Let me out, I want to scream.

Cutting my own chains.

Even if you never cared.

Pretend for one day.
