“Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.” –Frida Kahlo

He told her she was pure magic
and thought his words would melt
her heart. But she learned long ago
that magic is nothing more than
an illusion, that what you think you see
and what you are truly seeing are not the same
things. So he never understood that
instead of mending the pieces of her
breaking heart, his words were the start of
the unravelling of her all over again.
She knew that in the end she’d be the
only one left on stage, a lone participant
left trembling like a summer leaf
before it’s consumed by the eternal flame of
her soul as it hurtles through space,
through the trap door of a love that doesn’t
exist anymore. That’s why she stopped
believing in magic and why she never will.

Peace & Love,



About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard. Check out my Amazon author page at the following link:
