unlove poetry

I can’t unlove, say
words backwards
in a ritual minus dolls and pins:
reverofouyevollliwi

or take back this heart
because you never held it

it was here,
beating

it never left.

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?

    How quickly this poem moves from unloving to ‘dolls and pins’. Wow! What rituals we create to protect ourselves. Saying unlove backwards = self love!

  5. ha! I am backward!
