she says she loves him, still
with her heart broken
because that space in her chest
has room for so much more
Susan, for me this sums up the terrible beauty of poetry. How one person’s truth, written just so, can reach so many hearts as to become universal. Thank you.
Thanks, Paul. Had to write this after I heard someone say that although her heart was broken, all it meant was she had more room to love. Struck me as so sweet and so sad, and so wise.
Beautifully written ~ a universal truth
Thank you Polly, and a truth overheard I just could not resist sharing.
So well song! Is this love or is it inertia? We can never know, neither can she ever too, truly!
Thanks, Noel–Yeah, I was struck by the beauty and truth of what she said–blew me away!
felt to my core! beautiful my friend.
Thanks, SFAM! Kind of similar to the “there’s more room in a broken heart.” Darn it, what song is that from! On the tip of my tongue…
that’s reba luv…For My Broken Heart.
hee, hee–thank you!
y’all are welcome
Exactly–the weight of stuff overheard…
Interesting one to ponder, in the words, in what sparked them.
(Sorry, not my intent to have the video spring to life here.)
No problem, Nelle 😉
Makes you wonder about the resilience of the human spirit 🙂
yes, it does. To feel such pain and still have so much love for the person responsible (directly or indirectly) for it.
At best could be a spiritual thing.. to hate is so tiresome and useless 🙂
It certainly is. I was struck by her softness, her openness.
And that is the beauty of loving, Space for more love. Beautiful and haunting.
Thanks, Celestine–so much more spiritually developed than I am.
