I read that and it just brung me to tears, this is saddening and it has a lot of emotion put into it. Just a few simple words could describe so much. I love it. I've read a few of your other short poems and they really are amazing.
Not so much a haiku as a free verse poem conforming to predisposed English haiku syllabic count, but the message is potent nonetheless. I do enjoy the pun with the ropes - that double entendre really opens the work up for interpretation.
