My sun is coming up

If this is how you love, lover
in a dance of steel and teeth,
feathering pain across unwilling skin,

take your need somewhere else,
because your kisses leave me bloodless
and I am no admirer of vampires,
even those with metaphorical fangs.

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?

    • THanks, Noel. It helps when one has inspiration that walks, breathes, and pouts in one’s kitchen. Actually, I would prefer to write less and have more peace 😉

  9. You watch True Blood? Abusive behaviors feel exactly like fangs, sucking us dry!
