Darkness My Friend – Author Anne D. Salyer

 

The darkness is my friend.

When I sleep

It whispers sweet words

Into my ear and soothes me

Through my waking dreams.

The harsh light

Could never be so honest.

The sun could never

Hold me to its heart.

Only the darkness knows

My better face

And he is not telling!

Anne D. Salyer

I was born and grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. Eventually I escaped to Kansas where I met the love of my life with whom I’ve been with for 25 years. We currently reside in Overland Park with three cats, my neglected poetic children, and this raccoon puppet. All in all, it is a good life!
