Haiku: Forgive You Not



your “sorry” echoes,
uttered in a barren space
filled with false mercy

  4. You'd expression "false mercy" resonates with me. I have seen it but you have named it for me. I enjoyed your haiku.

  5. Nice one. An empty 'sorry' is valueless.

  6. "False mercy" is a powerful complement to "barren spaces".
