Default Tanka Poetry

I've been reading a lot about Tanka poetry. I've gone through lot of stuff on internet and have tried to write some Tanka poems.

What do you think about these?

In need of some sleep
She's now extremly tired
Of recurrent faces
Which find their way in her dreams
Mid-night, she sobs for her past.

That lonely bench
In the middle of night, pined
For one who was young
The boy who departed early
Once sat on the bench and cried.

They are interesting to read.
Well thought out.

Is there no titles to tankas?
a lesson in
life is a pound
in sound
it reminds us
it is expensive a fine
so bear one
in mind

Yeah, thanks
I thought for the first one it would be "Tired" and for the second it could be "Lonely Bench"
