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


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 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…

426685_424082927627752_700825732_nAmara seemed to forget constantly that she was beautiful.  She knew she was but pain had made her self-doubt and she began to lose herself. It had been 5 years, 3 days, and 21 minutes since he walked out the door and yet, she couldn’t move on. She was not only mad at herself but wondered how stupid she could be. She used to laugh out loud when she watched those Spanish movies and the two lovers would cry and part and wish they could die together.. little did she know she too would fall so madly in love and get heartbroken as well.

TJ sat there lamenting about how he hurt Amara but didn’t have the guts to see her again. He walked out on her in the most unkind way. He knew what he did was wrong but pride won’t let him talk to her. There were days he would pick up the phone and try to call but he would give up. Their love was real.. it was intense.. she was going to be the mother of his kids, they were going to live on a farm when he retired… they were going to be happy. Then what went wrong? He just couldn’t remember , all he knew was she got him so mad and he walked away and said he would never go back and didn’t . However, thoughts of her had crossed his mind recently. He had dated several women but none like Amara.. No one got him so focused.. No one could challenge him, no one loved like that and no one believed in his dreams like she did… no one was as generous… no one.. gosh , he knew he messed up but one thing he also remembered was her temper and stubbornness… that he couldn’t stand and then he laughed… He wondered how she was doing… Was she married now?

Amara told her herself, Tunde was good enough. He had been patient with her .. especially with her rules… No sex before marriage and they had been steady 6 months, but gosh …her heart did not beat when she was near him. She cried to God.. Was she just going to marry for marriage sake or remain an old maid when the one she loves didn’t want her? All she needed was a twinkle…


It was spring again and Cassandra just loved the weather, It was her favorite time of the year. It often ushered in new beginnings, change ,hope and faith. She was so in love with John and would just day-dream about him constantly. She felt so lucky in love. She had been in love before but this was different, she felt safe. However their issue was, both families did not think they were a good match.

She met John at work; he was consulting at the firm she worked at and after several ” hellos” and bumping into each other, she decided to ask him out. He was impressed. He was the one always doing the chasing and was glad, this pretty girl had the guts to go for what she wants and that is how it all began. They were complete opposites but you know the saying how opposites attract… that was it.

Now his parents had so much money and hers didn’t. That was a major issue. John’s folks were convinced that she was after their money and asked her to sign a prenup while he insisted that he would not put her through such pain. He proposed, it was his decision and she did not even want to accept. She told him they needed to wait,they barely knew each other after 2 months but after a week, she called him and said ”yes” that they would grow together; Even after 20 years, they would still be learning things about each other.

Meanwhile his folks had a perfect girl for him.  She was a daughter of a business partner and although he did indicate interest at some point, he just loved the simplicity of Cassandra. She loved him for who is and not what he was and that is all he wanted.

Cassandra was at home with her parents trying to convince them that John loved her for real and was not going to make her a piece of furniture. He knew she had dreams and they had agreed that she would set up her own clothing line. She was going to put in 5 years into that before having kids. Everything had been thought about and agreed. Her mum told her men change, it was all too good to be true. Why would he pick a simple girl like her over thousand of rich women with affluent family over her?

Could their parents be foreseeing the future? True love after all does not care about material things…

My Diamond


My Queen is a diamond

She is beautiful beyond comprehension

She stands out from the crowd

She teaches ,edifies and molds me

Her warm embrace I cherish

I admire her intelligence

I find confidence in her strength

I know she can handle any storm

A diamond in the rough

When I look at my Queen;I see no other..

I cherish my every moment with her

I know she is not perfect but she is perfect for me

A diamond in rough

All her curves and edges are beautiful

She makes me proud, my Queen

I can’t  but help to talk about her to my friends and family

She is not my trophy but a gift I treasure

She is not some conquest but a gift I value

She did not come under me to be crushed but stands by me ,beside me, behind me to give me support in things that matter

My Queen is whom I rely on and my only true friend

She is modest,slow to anger, sweet

I rely on my Queen and she trusts me

My Queen ,I cherish.. I adore..I am awed

My own diamond

My Queen soon to bear me sons and daughters that will make a difference in our generation

My Queen will rule my kingdom and men will bow down to her

My Queen will excel in all things

My Queen, my LOVE

Where art thou,my Queen?
