If You Love Me

“Everybody has to make choices– choices they must live with, sometimes die with.” –Colin Channer

“A soul mate is not found; a soul mate is recognized.” –Vironika Tugaleva

He said, “If you love me
you must learn to hold water
in the palm of your hands &
never let one drop fall. Become
like the river that always flows calmly
and I thought,
“What does that mean?”
And I thought of the things
I’ve seen pulled from the river:
football helmets
doll heads
beer bottles
mannequin legs and heads
What do they do with the torso? 
a body whose feet was
encased in concrete.
And I knew that he was saying
loving him would not be easy for me
it wouldn’t protect me
it wouldn’t comfort me
in fact, it would almost kill me
a thing that only existed 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.
