Silence Brings Me Peace


Knocked down to my knees.

The weight of the noise pains me.

Silence brings me peace.

Colors of Our Dreams


We see what they don’t.

Apparitions filling in.

Colors of our dreams.

It’s fine to be you


Make-up to hide you.

Posing for your photo shoot.

It’s fine to be you.

We Watch Over You


We don’t breathe or eat.

We can’t even fall asleep.

We watch over you.

Are You Art or Real?


Are you art or real?

My friend brought you to see me.

Your eyes follow me.

Design a Ghost Friend


Design a ghost friend.

Make it feel, care, and so real.

Artificial thrill.

Inside You’re Crying


Holding another.

Secure your nets, flaunt your wins.

Inside you’re crying.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #202, 11/23/2018 –

Everything is not always as it seems. Especially in this time of widespread use of social media. It’s okay to be vulnerable. I feel you.
