Bye-Bye Heart Month

February ends, and we wave good-bye to Heart Month with a little poem for heart happiness.

She’d loved fully, loving well.                          
Her lover’s leaving broke the spell.
She then began to hide her heart
Inside a locket on a chain.
She forced it in a too-small space,
She bent and twisted it in place,
And once she’d snatched it from the sun
Saw not the light in anyone.
It could not swell with pride or care.
It could not grow held hostage where
It could not breathe locked from the air.
So, it began to fester there.
                                          S. R. Cuss

Don't let this happen to you!

Keep your heart happy. Wear it on your sleeve and let it breathe, exercise it often, and show it off to everyone.

Okay, I'm climbing down off the soapbox now.
Hope you cultivate a Happy Heart!

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz


  1. Another lovely poem, Suz. We sometimes get out of the habit of expressing our true feelings, don't we?

  2. Glad you like it, Janet. Yes, you're right that we often don't express ourselves. Every once in a while I just burst. ;-)


I love to read your comments!
