For The Love of Nothing

I am amazed by the mysteries of this world, the things we do for love; the love of money, and choice of whom and how to love. I didn’t have a memorable childhood, so I was always bent on changing my story, others call it altering fate. Whichever it is, it toughened me. I hated my father for always beating ... Read More »

The Spark In My Quiet World

Lizzy, Simply blessing the day our paths crossed will be undermining the joy that walked into my life the first time we exchanged our first hello(s).

DILA – Dangerously In Love Again

My misfortune, it was that all my ex-lovers loved me prematurely and battered my heart relentlessly. I, who was the prize many women contested for, gradually became the man who they’d rather be ‘just friends’ with. My heart which they all called ‘mine’ became a goldmine; each girl using a dagger to cut her piece of the treasure. A heart ... Read More »
