I had a lover onceHe was 'the one every girl wants'He did everything rightProtected me from the cold of the night He would touch my hairAnd hold my handAnd his kiss could make me want for airMy lover, however, loved to play' disappear'A game that left me with the cold to bearMy teeth would clatterMy feet frostbittenAnd the cold climbed to my heart as with a ladderMy lover did return He tried to gi

‘Rip my heart apartEvery piece into more piecesLove is for foolish heartsNow I wish I had listened’.As I dropped my pen on my tear-soaked notepad, I felt weak like a surge of energy just left me. I sobbed silently on my bed. My mind in total disarray, I cried till there were no more tears in my tear ducts, till I felt like I couldn’t breathe, till I felt completely drained and I must have drifted

A week ago I shouted, With a depth that betrayed forbidden stories My voice breaking in pain, My back saddled with fatigue; Alone.   Hours passed Still I ignored it, It haunted my every move Highlighting the failures around me, maddening imperfections bold, annoying I grew exasperated with every minute.   “So pitiful” I whispered in disgust. As the subtitles of a movie began to blur, and the sound

This is the place we fell in love And made the world our little alcoveA place where nothing mattered but usAnd push never came to shoveThis is the place we made promisesTo live above the errsAnd be the perfect puzzle pieces Incorruptible by the world's vanities Now this is the place you restWhile I stand desolate and weepWhen we drew our picture-perfect life, You never told me there would be death

                              Leila sat on her grandfather's easy chair, rocking herself absentmindedly as she fantasized about her future husband; how he'll propose to her on the shores of an Hawaiian beach with beautiful dancers all dressed in lovely mumus and grass-made crowns or how they'll  cruise in a Yacht across the Atlantic ocean and end up snorkeling or scuba diving in the underwater wor

"Yeah, it's me. Miss me?" "No! I hate you! Where have you been?" "Slow it down, volcano! I lost my phone the day I got to Lagos, almost immediately after I received your call" "You got robbed?" I gasped. "Let's just say 'Mr feather fingers' got it off me. I didn't feel a thing. I didn't even know till I got home" "Wow! What a welcome party" He laughed. "I'm really sorry I was unable to reach

   How painful it must to be timeless, to know it all…but even more painful, to be eternal, never able to taste the pain of death. Often I imagine we are but the dream of a God gone mad. That would explain why there is evil, a sleeping God couldn’t really do much against such…hmmm. For far too long I sat in deep contemplation about the existence of a creator being. One that is infinite, beyond s

  Again, I found myself on the verge of the most dangerous place I had ever known…my mind. Some days it was a garden of beauty, most days, a void not even darkness could fill. From this existential prison with only sleep for temporary escapes and the hope of death for a permanent one, wrestling with time was all I ever did. Time, after all said and done, the spending of this priceless commodity

The first and most important rule of writing is that there are NO rules, only suggestions. Depending on what you are writing, who you are writing for, and what you want to achieve with your writing, the writer can do as they please. The web and books are filled with all sorts of rules. They encourage us to avoid clichés, to use simple grammar, short sentences, the list goes on. But in reality, the

Characters we encounter in books aren’t so different from people we encounter in reality. For the most part; we are given a little insight into a person’s persona, and based on the little information we have, we make up the rest. Anyone that has ever experienced something like falling in love at first sight will be able to relate to the notion of falling in love with the idea of what a person coul

  Eric was no stranger to the idea that he came off as a bit of an asshole. In his opinion, he was only brutally honest but people just didn’t like to confront the truth. They’d rather have a sugar-coated pill of lies to soothe their insecurities and enable them to maintain some false sense of value. He was sat across the table on an encounter he wasn’t sure could be classified as a date. The dat

"I'm nervous, mum" "It's okay dear. You look stunning. Own the day" she said with a reassuring smile. That was the confidence boost I needed. I half-walked, half-skipped down the aisle, my smile wider than the Cheshire cat's in Alice in Wonderland. My gown was of the purest white I have ever seen, embellished with real rubies splashed across the bodice. I was in a church. I knew that because of t

Dear Angela,              I know you're slowly dying of so much guilt that your conscience has probably absconded in shame but one thing I think you should know is that I would never witch hunt you. Never! Our friendship was a masterpiece but you chose to blow it into the abyss. It hurts to know that you didn't think it evil to drive a poisoned stake into my heart. True, you must have done it out

What's the price of your soul? Your weight in silver or gold? Knowledge from ages so old Buried cryptic in scrolls? Oh yeah, we're searching for truth Taking detours for some roots For the root of evil, we live in pursuit.   I have to cop me a suit  A new pad with a view Swimming pool that's in suite And a gold chain for a noose   Living rich and depressed Hoping the liquor destress

  What is an idea? Ideas cannot be touched, seen, or felt, but they are as real as any object perceivable by the five senses. In fact they are so real that we have an entire system dedicated to securing ideas as personal or cooperate property. That is exactly what patents are for. In this chapter we will be looking at the nature of ideas and the implications presented by what we discover. To put

Two weeks passed quickly and still no word from Jake. This was quite unlike him.  Every second that passed only seemed to heighten my worry. I became a devout Christian automatically, praying morning and night that Jake would be safe. I could not concentrate on anything and soon my friends noticed.  "Shay, are you okay?" asked Mims "Yes, I'm fine" I lied, wearing a plastic smile.  "If you can s

I didn’t mean to, I really didn’t mean to. It all happened so fast. One second we were having dinner at the table watching another bizarre home-movie and making fun of everything we could pick out done wrong, the next second I’m covered with a rage beyond my control unleashing more terror than I ever imagined I was capable of.  It started when she decided to look at her phone. She had been doing

Don't be alarmed It's just some kids with firearms and machetes for your arm You are now welcome to the belly of the beast Where demons and devils meet Crime and corruption cripple the streets, Broad day bribery, no, it's never discreet, Preachers prey on the meek, Leaders prey on the weak, Rip the spoils of the soil and leave the water filled with oil, You live in denial of a failed

Cried every night till my tears were dried Ached in my heart right from the inside Lost my very essence ‘cause I gave you the license Mind got screwed till I lost my cool No other dude could ever get through   Said you’d love me for centuries Too many of these lies in my memory Ages and ages of gross deceit Should’ve seen ‘tis a reason to retreat But my love was too strong to shove   T
