Not your type girl....

So I was sitting at this lobby waiting for my turn, not really paying attention to the others waiting like me. I had logged in to a chatting application on my phone using that to kill time. This girl I have been chatting with for days had flicked an emotion in me. I had been arranging to see her in a while now but she kept evading the topic. Now that I’m around her area, I had thought to drop by. Hanging out with her for a couple of minutes won’t be bad so I fired up determination to get her to pick me at the place.
As we chatted on, she couldn’t keep the truth of why she didn’t want to see me any longer. She broke it to me that she is a lesbian. Disgust, anger and many other emotions arose in me. Meanwhile the girl sitting next to me had been peeping to read the chat. She smelled the emotions flying by and asked me what the problem is so I showed her the chat. Surprisingly she didn’t flinch but told me of how her boyfriend had been snatched by another lover. That seems to be a normal thing until she told me the new lover is a guy.
Apparently, she had already gotten over it. We had been hanging out for a while now. Must say she’s a wonderful person! I’m kind of hoping to ask her out one of these days. I can’t deny her effect on me. We are fun together; Mad fun! And yes she has great girl friends. Not your type of girls though.
With all these gay people around her, could she really want me? Could she be a friendly lesbian using me to cover up her status? Or is she a bisexual? Well she is coming over tomorrow; I’d take my chance. She had better at least be a bisexual if not straight.

..this palpitation

you are a flickering in my firmament
I got lost, found
and then lost
wandering towards your twinkling
I’d gather the sky
gather you...
whispers of the night
would tell of it.

But then
the soothing morning breeze
would caress my skin
into reality
....this palpitation,
a trick?

Nigeria, the show!

                As I read that Obasanjo laughed at Atiku’s candidacy, I can’t but join in the laughter galore. It is actually funny that Atiku is contesting again especially under the PDP umbrella. But what is more amusing is the fact that an ex-president now sees the matter of the country as comedy.
                Atiku’s character might have been comical for many reasons best known to Obasanjo. Knowing Atiku, as his vice president for two terms would have given him enough insight into the character of Atiku. Obasanjo might have perceived him as a weakling who is set to lose again. Or it might be that he’s actually laughing at us, the masses, who can’t see beyond our nose.
                Come to think of it, I would be laughing too if I had orchestrated a drama series that people appraise as it unfolds. While every other person is being swept off by the suspense, intrigue, action, comedy, etc of the episodes they have seen, my amusement would feed on their ignorance of the whole story yet. I can’t claim I know Obasanjo but he seems quite dramatic...
                No need to recount the stories of recent events in and around the country. We are familiar with the episodes as they unfold. The drama gets spiced up here and there every time. “The dark night of (in)-dependence”, “won win tribunal...”even recentlywild wild Jos; they have kept people talking as the season continues. Now the radio is saying IBB might be seeking shelter under another umbrella; that colourful PDP umbrella’s shade is quite overcrowded. I won’t be surprised if towards the election time he announces his decision to quit the race. That would surely cause a carnival of laughter from different quarters, for many it would be a prayer answered.
                Testimony time in religious circles would be filled with insert like this “praise the Lord for fine-turning the will of IBB”. For some the new prayer point would be “Oh God, change the will of my enemies as you did that of IBB”. I imagine that the result of the 2011 elections would proclaim some names as synonymous to failure; that would probably start from the party primaries. Be warned! Drama thrives on suspense; paying cautious attention is strictly advised here.
                As it is, Nigeria, the movie is in the theatres. Some manage to watch as the drama is being enacted; some participate in the actions but don’t forget those who actually orchestrate the drama. You know how ‘Actors’ (protagonists) hardly die in a film; it’s all in the manipulation of the story to the orchestrator’s fancy. In the spirit of laughing let’s not forget that he who laughs last, laughs well, laughs best!!!
Enjoy the show!!

We've been together all this while;frowning, smiling.
Looked into my eye and still see yours when i close mine.
You scratch my back;i till yours-You've toiled and toyed with me.
Still hear the clattering of the rain on our backs
as our sins washes down the road.
How can i rely on anyone but you...
Knowing we shall lie together at the end.


Dis-ember;i love
sing the seven days of xmas
merry with friends and families.
Dis-ember;i know the gain of laborious days toiled.
Dis-ember;i see cocoons turn into butterflies
spread wings,rise to decorate the sky
noticed the movement of time even as it flies.

Dis-ember;i meet her
beautifully adorned in the skin of nature
from her chest full of milk and honey
i drink eternity.
Dis-ember;she is my Santa Claus
to me she bestow her precious gift
the son of man.
She is,as was,holy mother.

Dis-ember; mon chère
in the cold night of rhapsodic enchantment
she stealthily crawls into my embrace.
We joined our twisted fate.
Our complication romance
in the fiery of its nature.
Dis-ember;we sit and savour
the scent of our glowing ember of love.
Dis-ember she is.
