i go hunting to kill what is left of you in me

the trails are cold
& dead
but i will find the traces

wipe that last kiss
from my lips
because it stings

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?

    It needs to be so at times, doesn’t it. A cleansing process. A purifying. Before moving on.

    The last kiss … stinging … wow, that was powerfully revengeful !!!

  3. Hmmm!
    dead trails in lairs curled
    cold lifeless
    and better left so!

    Scrub it so hard
    Till blood oozes out
    Fuck , a scar!
    Still reminds me of you…

  11. Yes, Susan, it rocks. And sometimes, the sting of the last kiss burns forever, no matter how much you want it off.. Very powerful lines. The blog background is so cool. Loves the Header, is that you or your daughter?

    I have the image of a knight in a medieval forest.

    This is “the quest” redefined.
