she says she loves him, still
with her heart broken
because that space in her chest

& open
has room for so much more
than pain

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?

    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.

  2. Beautifully written ~ a universal truth

  3. So well song! Is this love or is it inertia? We can never know, neither can she ever too, truly!
