Love

Start Anew

After the rain falls, the sun rises…

That’s the hope we do have each and every day

When life throws you lemons, you make a lemonade

That’s what all your friends tell you

What most people don’t actually tell you about the pain and sadness that weighs you down and keeps you up at night

Nobody bothers to tell you about the hurt and disappointment you may never get over

After night ,comes day….

That is for sure… this is a certainty

How do I let you go and start anew when I can’t say for sure that I will find true love again?

The kinda love that shakes you and your life never remains the same again.

The kinda love that just one touch, one look, one smile ,takes all your pain away.

How do I sleep and hope to feel alive again in someone else’s arms?

How do I kiss another’s lips and imagine they taste as yours ?

How do I hold another and feel safe forever?

She took a deep breath and kept walking.

All these ranging thoughts of desire.

She needed something, someone or anything to tell her for sure, she would find another..

She kept walking and kept hoping that tomorrow she would gain what she lost and much more.. She prayed, she hoped.

Goodbye

Henry didn’t like to say goodbye. Each time he had to , he feared it would be definite. Goodbye sounded like forever.. He preferred to say” Till we meet again”. He love Hadiza so much because she was kind , gentle ,well-mannered and she drove him crazy with her sexy voice and dreamy eyes.  Another plus was all his friends loved her but their religious arguments and some other cultural issues always drove them apart. They just couldn’t argue to disagree with no hard feelings when it came to those issues.They both took it personally and were very sensitive about their faith and culture.

However he just didn’t know how to tell her goodbye. They had gone steady now 7 months: the point where the test of relationships always comes and this test he wanted so badly to pass but it seemed it wasn’t going to happen. He pondered if they would remain friends, he pondered if he should talk to her about this or just disappear like a coward. He was confused. He knew how closure was important to most women but he feared he would look into her eyes and be lost again.

Hadiza had made up her mind it was over. She was tired of the constant arguments over silly issues with Henry,as she would say but he would insist they were not silly. She had dated men in her past who didn’t even love her this much but religion never came between them. She wondered if he truly loved her. She realized that love not enough. She remembered how often he promised her that their relationship would last forever , and she told him , time would tell. She scolded herself,” gosh! emotions often get a hold of you”.She would end it now before it gets harder. She had to.

Sunrise or Hope

He smiled as she said her name again, she was such a beauty and her innocence was what made him so drawn to her. Yet he felt he was doing something wrong. Segun lost his wife 2 years ago and he wasn’t sure he should have a love interest so soon.

She smiled as he looked at her with his dreamy eyes, she wondered what he was thinking about. She was happy because she had met someone who didn’t want anything else but just know her and of course,” stare”… hahaha… she laughed. It had been 3 years she hadn’t dated , not because of betrayal or anything of that sort. She was saving herself for the best, “The One” as she heard her married friends say.. Suddenly she looked at Segun, he was handsome but of age.  She guessed he was in his late 40’s and wondered what was his story. She could tell sadness behind those eyes but she hoped she would help ,ease the pain and make him feel alive again… She wanted to save him because she needed saving too… However she was a little hesitant;would he accept her and her story if he knew?

Bold, Beautiful and Bossy

Miriam , that is what everyone called her. She was the 3 B’s… Bold ,Beautiful and Bossy. Yes and she didn’t mind flaunting it. She attributed her assertiveness to leadership. She once told us that it came from her many years of directing, coaching and bringing up her siblings. We would laugh.

We were such good friends until, Bayo came between us. I often joked that he would. I kind of saw it coming but didn’t want to believe our childhood friendship would be crushed because of love. Yes, because of stupid love. I was bitter, still bitter, as I wrote.

Bayo was one of those charming guys, who knew exactly what to say to get exactly what he wanted.  Miriam at that time was already engaged to Mike, our childhood friend and part of our inner circle. Mike was her first and was going to be her last! We just couldn’t forgive her for the betrayal. How could she do that? Bayo wasn’t special!

Hmm… Why do I remember? Miriam is in a coma and that should be my focus but perhaps I was worried she wouldn’t wake up and I couldn’t say all the things I had kept buried in my heart for 3 years.

Oh my time flies! It was 5 days  since the incident and Bayo was still AWOL. I kept asking myself,how could beat her and set the house on fire? I couldn’t wrap my head around it but I couldn’t help but say, ” I told her”.girl in pain

Time And Love

clock-01

Amanda watched the clock tick, tick-tock, tick tock… She sighed. It was such a beautiful day and such a beautiful weather but her heart was  very lonely still.

She missed being in-love, she missed the passion, she missed the desire of being wanted, she missed caring for someone, being there for someone, she missed him so badly:”The One” who was yet to come… She desired him so desperately… She sighed and asked herself; When was it going to be midnight ,so her luck would change… Tick-tock, Tick -tock..

Joshua looked out the window… His friends had always told him ,he was a hopeless romantic.. He believed that there was one person for everyone.. The One… He believed in fate, in destiny, he believed the stars would be aligned someday and he would meet her… He figured it would be on a full moon day.. He wondered if he was such a dreamer.. Life had been cruel to him… Why couldn’t he find love? Why was it so difficult for him to be happy, for him to care for someone, to adore someone, to pamper someone… He wondered and pondered… He looked at the clock and sighed..it was still early, why wont time just go quickly, he starred at the clock…Tick-tock,Tick-tock

 

 

 

Love and the Sheets

Their moaning could wake up the entire neighborhood but they couldn’t be bothered. It was as if it was their first time.. Their eyes locked and then she closed her eyes in sheer pleasure… He was lost in her warm embrace and as he went deeper all he could say was” I love you” . Yes, he did, so passionately. He had waited so long and finally they were here on their wedding night and it was simply magical…

Thankful

She was so thankful as she gazed into his lovely eyes. He was so beautiful. He made her so complete. Not that she was incomplete but they simply just fit… All her weaknesses were his strengths and all his weaknesses were her strengths.. She smiled and said what she had been holding back for years ” I love you”.. He smiled and said ” That wasn’t so hard now was it? I love you, you crazy sweet being .. all of me, loves all of you always” She leaned in and gave a kiss that sealed their love forever….
