Twelve Steps of Loving You

I’ve been going to Starbucks just about every day this summer, trying to maintain a consistent writing schedule. While I’m sitting there, I’m usually listen to a blues station I created on Pandora. The other day a song came on while I was writing. It was called “The Twelve Steps of Loving.” I took the title and made it my own. This is what I have come up with so far:

The first step,
dreaming of you.
The second step,
the day I met you, accidentally.
The third step,
talking to you, to know you.
The fourth step,
tipping over for the fall,
The fifth step,
daring to allow myself to love you,
to fall in love with you.
The sixth step,
hoping you were falling too,
but knowing even if you weren’t
it wouldn’t stop my fall.
The seventh step,
looking forward to seeing you, every day.
The eighth step,
imagining a future without you, and
knowing I wanted to spend my future with you
The ninth step,
because I never want to stop
The tenth step,
talking to you, loving you, being with you.
The eleventh step,
wanting to wake up next to you, every day
The twelfth step,
as much as I wanted to fall asleep beside you.

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:
