Haikus for a Masochist

At night I harbored 

Secret fantasies about 

Waking up in pain.

I yearned quietly 

For my body to destroy 

Itself completely, 

For life to shake me 

From my treacherous slumber 

That I might find health 

In the wake of death, 

In the wide ripples of pain 

That encompassed me.

I would go to sleep 

With my eye twitching madly 

Some old hidden stress

Rumbling inside 

My mysterious body 

Aching for release.
