things you remember

wear your hair down
tonight, he said
before he kissed me

and I will braid
moonlight into it

while you sleep

you won’t even know
I was there

but for the strands
tied off with light, ribbons
that disappear

as soon as your eyes open

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
