Words That Occur in the Absence of Love

Poetry is all about love. But what happens when love is absent? In her first poetry chapbook, Charron Andrus, gives the love torn a volume of thirteen pieces that move the reader from the newly heartbroken “Living Without” to the heart break survivor “Broken”. Words That Occur in the Absence of Love is a terrific exploration into heartbreak and its aftermath.


'Like a tree deeply rooted and unmovable so should we aim to be. Living fully with the things we value and love blooming like fruit from the widespread branches of our lives.'
