If you think I will be nothing without you

What was I before you


A halfbaked dream cupcake woman
needing icing and your tastebuds
to fully become

only while being eaten alive?

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?
