She’ll Never Tell

Today’s poem is nowhere near finished, but the goal is to get something down every day. So, here’s the poem for Day 24 of National Poetry Month:

She diced up her own soul
for him because he devalued her
whole self. She crushed her
self into the shoebox life
he envisioned for her, made
his dream a reality while she
was trapped in a nightmare.
Broken. Though she was broken
down for him, he refused
to help put her back together. He
only wanted to be free, but
what he couldn’t see
is that she’ll never tell a soul
how it feels to not be whole;
she’ll just continue to dice
her own soul, and since she’s
the one with the knife
there’s no way she’ll find
what she needs to make her
whole again. Still,
she’ll never tell.


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:
