Fire Burning in Your Belly

I saw you trying
to catch the sun
and I asked you
what you were doing.
You said trying to eat
the sun so you could
have fire in your belly.

I saw you trying
to drink the rain
and I asked you
what would you do
if the rain
doused the fire
burning in your belly.
told me
“I eat the sun
every day
and the moon
every night.
And then you kissed me
on my lips & I felt
your fire
crawling beneath my skin
where it started to
rage within me.

Now I can’t sleep at night
I’m always waiting
to be drenched with your
showers of fire.
The fire that comes from you
will either renew me
destroy me.

Whatever your fire does
to me, I’m no longer free
to decide my fate
because you shared the fire
with me, the one
that burns in your belly.

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:
