Love on Life Support

I was walking around
the other day,
making my rounds
when I checked in on Love
and discovered Love was dying.
I quickly placed Love on
life support,
tried to resuscitate Love.
But I went ahead and
started saying good-bye.
Artificial life, I knew,
could never truly sustain Love
for very long.
It’s just a matter of time
before Love is gone
for good. And I, at least,
wanted to say one final good-bye
so Love would know
I valued his presence in my life
and though he was leaving
and the good-bye was final
Love’s passing wouldn’t be
tainted with swollen words
unspoken and the cancer of

Peace & Love,

love on life support


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:
