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 […]

Your Voice

Little Lines – 06 It was your voice for me In its many expressions That silky, sultry, and subtle Alto Yet, firm and inspiring First, in the occasional tones And then, in its regular occurrence A daily dose of bliss, a special effect Like water on a parched land Echoing through eons of nothingness It’s […]

His Handmaiden: A lovely Sunday Morning

It’s a lovely Sunday morning. You should be in church, physically, but COVID-19 lockdown has had a long toll on you, and you haven’t made up to two appearances since church resumed physical service. To make matters worse, church streaming isn’t clear this morning, so you have turned it off. Off you go to WhatsApp, […]

She Broke up with me and I said “Let Us Pray”

I remember this incident as clearly as dawn. It was a cool evening that day on the campus of Obafemi Awolowo University. A week before this, I had asked her to let us meet, as a final effort to resolve whatever was causing the over one month of ‘silent treatment’ from her. “So, what’s up?” […]

Talking Stage

Little Lines – 05 It was then the talking stage for me The little conversations That grew into deep-seated ones Like daily doses of a rare elixir A mixture of care, concern, and Love It was the voice and words for me The many things we talked about The random songs we burst into The […]

I Can Only Imagine

I can only imagine… I can only imagine that on that day, as I stand before her, family, friends, and God, staring into those eyes, reading and reciting those vows… I can only imagine that beyond the make-up and glittering face behind the veil, that combines the beauty of about a thousand people, together in […]

Courteous Love

Little Lines – 04 It was first the courteousness for me Posh, prim, and proper Like one from an aristocratic dynasty Raised with royalty flowing in her veins The words came out with thoughtful precision To the good, the bad, and to all Yet with kindness and understanding Like one well-taught of the Lord How […]

Heartbreaks and Moral Departures

When those before me first mentioned their moment of departure from the values they once upheld, just after a crucial breakup, I sympathized with them but felt it was simply a moral failure on their part. And I boasted I’ll never be caught up in that kind of temptation no matter how hurtful the heartbreak […]

The Day Came

Little Lines – 03 But the day finally came. That day, when this heart would finally open up – internally, at least. But open up nonetheless. The hiatus had lasted about four years with bouts of premature affections, almost leading to a relational comatose. But this was a breath of freshness, like the smell of […]
