Letter to Self

Olufemi, I see the self-condemnation you have been going through. I understand why you have been too hard on yourself. You probably think all that has happened in recent weeks diminishes your worth. I just want to remind you that dwelling on the hurt and frustration will further get you crutched under the burden of guilt. Did you really think…

Full of Love, Fool for Love

Tade looked into my eyes with fury and expressed his disappointment in me. His exact words were, "Femi, when it comes to love, you are a dunce. I am afraid all these girls will keep taking you for granted if you don't learn to put yourself first. I can't believe you let this happen again and let yourself be used."…

For better and worst

The say, the devil you know is better than the angel you don't know, always imprints on my mind that talk is cheap. Nothing is black or white except both colours. Biblically, the devil was once an angel, hence, everyone who manifests evil intentionally also displays kindness spontaneously. This is because good is innate in every being. The transformation to…

True Love through Lies

If you are reading this and have ever truly been in love you'd understand that being in love most times require making impossible sacrifices. Treading abominable paths, being at war with friends and family, but not holding on to regrets if it doesn't work. Growing up has launched my insight into a pond of such helplessly complicated situation. Personally, I…

Love me or set me free

We've been at this for some time, Holding on to the bond that binds us, as a newborn depends on his mother's breast to survive, Like twin sharing an umbilical cord in all accord. We've roared at each other like a thunder storming through the earth, And parted ways with anger, like lightning running through the sky, temporarily. You and…

Ewatomi: Echoes of Unrequited Love

Ewatomi, I bet you will never truly know how strange it feels to seek mere friendship in someone in whom you daily desire to date, in the hope of matrimony. Do you know how sour it is to wither a seed you planted, watered and nurtured with your own hands? Can you imagine how difficult it is to be evicted…

Tales of My Misguided Emotion

Got something to share, the thought of it is already forming a cloud of emotions.  I remember this time last year. I was the happiest girl alive! I had everything I wanted, almost or so I thought. I had never been so happy, so much it made me delirious, so much I felt guilty for my state of utter bliss.…

Painful love

Be warned, this is an intriguing love story with a happy ending but beneath it are pain and hurt. This is a tale of how I found love in the woman I got married to. Yes, I said found love because she wasn't the one I fell in love with. In fact, I was madly in love with her best…

Sweet like Vinegar

The semester had just begun and Jane like other students was in their most happy moments. Friends who had missed each other bonded, course mates who left each other for the long vacation were chatting happily, all over Lecture Room 9 were sounds of joy. It was the most stressless time in the semester. The lectures were not fully into the…

Sex: A Tool or Gift?

I'd have sworn that it was all love if it hadn't ruined us. It was how we found ourselves, yet how we lost each other. It was the word we never said and the one we always expressed. It was how we reconnected after thundering at each other, there was no greater apology. It was what we always did and…
