I like the tone of familiarity in this haiku, but the tone is elusive. This mostly works in the poems favour, it's very mysterious.

I really like the link between the inherent bitterness of green tea and friendship.

Such a lovely description of what wrong actions can do.

Love all your haikus! This series with a running theme is fantastic. I thought the bitterness seeps through as a thing of pain and regret. I've been the person who was taking and not giving, and I've been the person giving and not receiving. Both sides are painful. The poem in chapter nine is my favorite because it is layered and can be interpreted in different ways. One way I interpreted it is being emotionally disconnected because if you are disconnected, you are not fully partaking in life. Love your poetry.

well written - i felt exactly what you were trying to say, and not just because i've been in this situation before. nicely done :)

Woo, harsh! I don't necessarily agree, but I love the snark, and well-selected diction.

Makes me think of a twin.

This is an interesting and thought provoking poem. It's difficult to balance relationships with being true to oneself.

Sounds like co-dependence, which is not what you were intending. Enjoyed the simplicity of this poem.

I read the topic of honesty throughout these three poems. The first one had green tea being bitter and made me think of when someone is telling you something you don't want to hear but is good for you. The second one, honesty through understanding and solidarity. Finally the third one has a humorous teasing and gentleness like someone said something that you knew already about yourself but didn't want to admit to. Good series so far and hope you continue it :)

First, smirk is one of my favorite words, so clearly I approve.

The second line doesn't seem to flow as well for me. Perhaps something like "[It] really [pisses] me off." Of course, this is nothing more than person preference and suggestion.

Love the last line. Danger to come!

This is delightful because the one showing empathy could be either the subject or the narrator.
