Book Spine Haiku

I love book spine poetry and I always looks forward to seeing what people come up with in the now traditional Bout of Books challenge. Hosted by bookgoonie, today’s challenge goes one step further and we have to form our books into a haiku. I spent ages rummaging around for a two syllable title to finish it off and the final line was a bit of a cheat, but here it is:

Faithless, blameless, lost
Girl meets boy where three roads meet
Under the same stars

    Aww…yours is romantic. Great job. I looked like a total goob chin counting my syllables trying to fit & fit mood.
