Noisy Distractions

“I’m not a prophet or a stone-aged man, just a mortal with potential of superman. I’m living on.”– David Bowie

Heeding the noisy distractions
that were never meant for me
I became submerged in quicksand needs
and desires, a fog so dense it blinded me.
I almost forgot how to breathe.
I would’ve died in the fog
if I hadn’t remembered
at the last minute
how to breathe without respiring
the noisy distractions meant to kill me.
I’ve been trying to remember how to breathe
for so many years that I’d gotten used to
the noisy wheezing that barely sustained me.
Noisy distractions are not real; what’s real
can never just disappear, receding within
the dense fog to be hidden.
I cannot hide from my true feelings
but I can fight back the noisy distractions
that were always meant to destroy me.

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:
