Thin Love

“Love is or it ain’t. Thin love ain’t love at all.” – Toni Morrison

She carried a dangerous storm inside
where her heart should have been.
Her eyes were spears, able to tear into
flesh, pierce it deep. She felt the things,
awful things crawling underneath her skin,
words they had been trying to tell her since birth.
I love you tried to pierce her skin, but she’d
grown a shell of protection, locking her in &
keeping her separate from everyone who tried
to love her. She destroyed what she didn’t
understand. And that was her truth. That
was the storm that was brewing within.
She didn’t want love that tried to make her
pliable, she craved a love to make her free.

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:
