Black and Blue

I saw a writing prompt the other day that said to write something using colors: black and blue. This is what I came up with:

Even love took his mask off last night.
Evil faced me, berated me
for falling in love with you. And
it wasn’t until after you two were gone
that I noticed the bruises. Even my heart
was left black and blue. Everyone could see
the bruises left on my cheek and all over
the rest of my body, but nobody could see
the hidden bruises, the ones on my heart.
All my markers are dry and my crayons broke
so I can’t re-color my heartbreak again.
When you choose to hurt me,
I will just have to carry the pain
in my soul, knowing that love does hurt
but only when I choose
to pour my love into someone
who shows me that they will never choose
to love me, that they only want to hurt me
because hurting me somehow
leaves them feeling whole, helps fix
what was broken in them long ago.

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:
