Your Face

#LIttleLines – 07 It was your face for me The beauty like a royal emblem Sitting pretty on that oval frame Dark and shinning, no shades of inconsistency From the first day I placed it And the few times after It became a part of my everyday A thought that brightens them As I look […]

Appearance is Fickle

Several years ago, Like several ‘several years ago’, Man sinned and fell short They became naked God gave animal skins as cloths And from generation to generation The definition of those skins has changed Today it could be a 3-piece Dicato suit, Or a polo t-shirt on a wrangler jean A Caribbean Skirt with a […]

One Way Love

#LoveWednesday   In Love, You cannot love for two You cannot love her so much That you provide love for her And also provide her love for you It must always be hers to give It must always be a two way traffic not a roundabout or else, you’ll end in a U-turn.   You […]

The one who forsook her worth Preferring to die a nonentity Only for half the price Have you see them?

As I crossed over to the other side, just in front of Oduduwa Hall, I sighted this beautiful lady ahead who was dressed as gorgeous as mine. A little […]

It happens.

#randomtots It happened in church on sunday, just as the praise and worship ended; as my eyes met hers, her smile broadened, revealing her gorgeous teeth; time stopped and so did my heart. Sitting at the choir’s stand, I could see the entire church, including this lady seated behind the ‘first timers’ section. Fair complexion. […]

Confession

#LoveWednesday #Adeola-mi The truth is this: Before I met you, I must admit, there were other ladies. I know I may not have told you about them before, and I’m sorry.
