Lady

I think it’s time to define myself as a female without trying to be petty or a misandrist I used to think of myself as a delicate primrose waiting for the right time to bloom With my heart filled with so much beauty And my dreams ready to soar like the Eagle’s wings Words and imaginations make up my beautiful mind I get vulnerable and I don’t want to be seen as always strong It’s not that easy to define…

Don’t Be Young And Old At The Same Time

Dean was a middle-aged, married Englishman – one of the many foreign friends I met through Facebook, way before the Yahoo Boys started scaring them all away. We became friends primarily because we supported the same football club, Manchester United, and we spoke over the phone a few times. On my 18th birthday, Dean called me and said: “Happy birthday! Make sure you enjoy it now you’re young… Because when you’re older, you won’t be so excited about getting older”. Normally,…

They…

Aren’t perfect. We just admire them and fall in love with the personality they want the world to see. When we get close to them, we notice their flaws and realize no one has it all figured out.…

Whisper

Let me take in the silent moment When you speak, Let me feel your breath and whisper all you need to say Don’t tell me about broken hearts Because I know nothing about it With a paranoid soul I wonder what you feel with me It’s time to say it out aloud Say my name in a certain way that makes me remember when we first met and every other memory All the fun we had this year I really…

Décès

The goosebumps were filled on the skin Hairs stood at the back of the neck In a moment, the rancid smell of liquefying skin blended with roasted hair and metals was choking It didn’t put on a show to care or recognize anyone It had nothing to do with being too good or excessively insidious.

“Is this the only shirt you have?” I’m reading that in Atonye’s voice. Gracious Lawd!!! Why today? Why me? “Lol. I know I’m putting on the same garments and shoes the last time I saw you.

I try so hard so see if I can go with the trend and flow with my friends within my age range but it’s not that easy. Sometimes I feel like a mom, other times a guidance counselor. On a more serious note, 23 is such a cool age…
