Window of the Soul

If the eyes truly are the windows
of the soul
why is it that I steal a look
in your eyes and
I feel trapped?

Are your eyes really mirrors that reflect
the undeniable truth?
We’re both trapped, prisoners of
our own existence.

The opening you provide for me
allows me to spend days
gazing out, wishing that mirrors were
actually windows.

Why is freedom so elusive?

Sometimes it seems
you’re trying to move closer to me
but your movement is an illusion
that leaves me reeling. When I think
you’re moving closer, I see
you’re farther away
than before.

Life is a beautiful illusion
a trick of the eye that
makes us believe
we can be free
but freedom continues to elude.

Will I be forever trapped
behind the glass wall
gazing out the window
fooling myself into believing
that one day
I’ll be on the other side
looking in.

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:
