Poem To Black Hair

Category: Opinion

What I love
As we walk
On my shoulder your head gently rests, 
Pressing close
As if to lean
As if to whisper
As if by accident
- and only for a moment
You stay
Hair thick against my neck 
Bramble tangle and moor wild
Wool warm and mint tingle
Untamed
Untameable
Like you.

A Kit Kat bar costs 60p. Were these words worth as much?

This is a reader supported site, so every micro payment (the cost of chocolate bar) helps pay for cups of tea, cake and general web pimpery. Support via Paypal, buy a book or just a coffee.
