Every Woman is a Jezebel ... Or Delilah ... Or Both
Dear Somkene, During our childhood, many people who did not know us personally usually thought that we were twins, because of the love we shared and the way we did practically everything together. Then whenever we made it known to those people that you were two years older than me, we would cackle with laughter at their surprise. It was not...
... So Blind a Fate
If only we had no eyes We would see the world without its disguise We would know the truths that lie dormant in darkness And life's pleasures with abounding frankness. If only we had no eyes To gaze not on those who only exist to despise To know in perfect assurance That in simplicity lay beauty's true appearance If only we had no eyes To see not ourselves...
Another Morning of Uncertainty
Beautiful life of peace announced my presence here. The dawn is come to take me through the road of 'maybe or maybe not'. For me it is an exciting adventure that will relay infinite deeds to be done. And for this life, hope is allegedly an opium psyching the lazy mind out of the present truth. 'What is the present truth?' is it a failing reality? or a...
Seeing Through the Dark
Alas! My mind knows the trick, the dark blindfolding and the search for bounties. And my mind carved the rules from instincts and innate thoughts, as I walk through the dark tunnel longing for the light. But what if the light is a lesser darkness, making me feel at ease amidst unease? What if the light is the true enemy of reality? I'm beginning to see through the...
The Forbidden Fruit
Out of the rib that created you Slender and curved as I behold you I thank the creator of such creature For my eyes have eaten a feast of you And now my hands are aching to touch As I have seen two bosoms to clutch And as my lips locate yours Straight to my member, blood will rush The allure of your sight and sound Has made...

Story, Story

Story, Story
Let me tell y'all a story about this girl in red bumshot that made her look like mogwli. She chewed gum loudly and had a nose ring. Had this color of hair that made me think of nose bleed. She is naïve and rolls eyes stupidly. Says she's a slay queen and needs a slay prince. Says she wants a condo, then a crib, cabin and...
Yenno I Ain't No Pessimist
Yenno I ain't no pessimist. but at times they are certain things we just have to believe would never be. End times the clock stopped ticking. White power; racism still breathing. Black people still end up in coffins. Women want their stands, gender equality. Subjected to husbands; feminists against it. Aks under the ceiling, a young boy dropped dead in a minute, a young girl selling her body...

Words

Words
Everyone has a mouth but not everyone knows how to use it Some open theirs and what comes out is brutal Some open theirs what comes out is soothing It's unfortunate how someone comes to you to advice and what comes out are like arrows; Piercing through the surface of their hearts, Leaving them shattered and in shambles sending them to the ward of bitterness...
Tell The Calabash
Today is like a brown Calabash painted with no brush of no artist. It's learnt to draw the battle line with no pencil this harmattan on itself See, it's sailing itself down the river bank. Here, they say dreams come through. Tell the Calabash I said no life existed without a designer with a scrub. Tell the Calabash I said the battle line it's drawing...

Why I Hate You

Why I Hate You
You are far away beyond my reach but why do I still feel your presence? Why do I see your face filled with scorn, laughing at me, daring me to take a sip? Why do you mock me so? It's so dark here there is no light at the end of this tunnel. I have fallen into an abysmal darkness. You've taken it all! I hate you...
They Can't Love You The Way I Do
Remember the days of hide and seek; when our innocence was contagious and the staining clay caused no offence. Then in Morse code we whistle and in Semaphores we whisper. And growing up together was a jackpot we hit that earned us millions of love. I know you better than anyone, from your rear to your front. Your smile, voice, gait and your natural fragrance, all unaltered within my...
Beautiful Duties
I do not forsake thee for my duties to discharge is my utmost priority; my works in life and the after life, lives forever and reconciles broken hearts. The sight of me lightens up a sad day and brings thee to breathe fresh air for my beauty overwhelms thee and causes thee to nose in a scent. My powers know no limit I plead forgiveness to the...

Life Story

Life Story
Life is given, a kid on the floor, with a smear of candy, Crawling on the pavement, soggy knees and a need for exploring, Years skipping by, until his pink fragile lips calls out "mommy" Teenage lifestyle, violence and the apologies that comes with it, "I'm sorry" Puberty maturity, deranged thoughts, and unfit for the society, Few friends, weird kid, who likes to hang...
Amazing Sin
Two wrongs can't make a right but two wrongs can be right. Hence wrongdoings got him into heaven. A damned soul by men, abhorred by one to ten. He lived freely in wrongs waxing morally strong. Undeterred to commit any error, his faults shone in the mirror. And this made him a hero as his sins brought him glory in ground zero. For his folks that were spotless, they came to...
Spiritual Maradonas
They'd mastered the art of Dribbling the scriptures; kicking kicks that aren't free kicks And cornering kicks that aren't corner kicks For their names to swell in the lips of men. By their bags and umbrellas, You shall know them. They claim to witness for the Jehovah themselves haven't witnessed. 'Spiritual Maradonas', Is what I like to call them. It is now their craft. Half truth. Half lie. Forgetting that, negative, multiplied...

We Both Lied

We Both Lied
You lied and I lied too You hurt me and I hurt you too You cried and I cried too How did I become the bad person? How come I hurt you more? Why play the victim? It hurts you as much as it does me Like the adage says: How you make your bed is how you lie on it You did this to us! You stopped caring My...

Iceberg

Iceberg
Tip of the iceberg, everybody wants success, no elevator to greatness, but I've got goons who can teleport to anywhere. Aren't you scared? Life gets messed up when you pass your awkward years, Million dollar smile, but a nigga look broke in that T-shirt. Express yourself? Can't even afford that, too much expenses stuck in your head, life's throwing punches at you, you got fat welts, regrouping for attack until the strategy...
If You Are Not Ready For Marriage
Man, if you are not ready, keep loving yourself. To fall in love while you are financially sick is a tragedy; if she accepts your love, it becomes a greater tragedy because, you'd go to any length to settle her needs. It is like the situation of a man who doesn't have enough for himself, but is calling neighbors to join him in his food.
