Saved the Last Dance

They say some people spend their lives never knowing love. The kind you never want to lose. And if you do, you should to be grateful that you once experienced something beautiful most people spend their whole lives never experiencing. Like in the lyrics of Alicia Keys. They say you can only ever truly love … More Saved the Last Dance

Helplessly

You distract me
But I’m distracted without you.
I don’t know how to focus
Baby, teach me how to.
‘Cause I’m standing still again
But if you love me
Just like the way that I love you
I wouldn’t mind a little comforting from you.
Why do I let you in my head?
I gotta go sometimes,
But you’re always on my mind. … More Helplessly

Just the way I am

I was proud of my heart

Until I realized it was too weak for love

I’m no warrior for love,

Even though I wish I could be as explicit as the feeling inside

It still wouldn’t be enough

Because such is my fate.

You think I talk a lot of gibberish

But perhaps if you made us as uncomplicated

You would find beauty in my words here in my heart

I said there was no room for love here

Yet you were willing to make me promises

You first loved

But I’m the one who became needy

My head’s under water

I’m struggling to be alright

I want to think of you only half as much as you think of me

But I have not become a slave to my feeling for you

I am struggling to be alright

I do not want you to see me shatter

But in truth,

This is what I have become

But I would rather live a life of unrequited love

Than not know the feeling at all

I wouldn’t change a thing

 Because I love me

Just the way that I am … More Just the way I am

Freestyle Tuesday – Poetry

Looking back from where I’ve been

I know where I want to be

It would appear progress isn’t as I hoped it

But when I look at five minutes ago,

I know there was something there I wouldn’t do again

Something there I wouldn’t try again

Something there I wanna take away

Something there I’m going to remember forever

For what good is remembering only the good things

If we cannot reminisce the bad to equip us unto where we want to be?

So I move five steps forward and one step back.

That’s ok, right?

Is this what it is called to self-examine?

Because I keep coming back to the spot where I left you. … More Freestyle Tuesday – Poetry

Grow to love you

After all, you can’t love someone you truly don’t know exceptionally and no one is expecting you to open your heart to someone in one fell swoop anyway. It’ll all be part of the memories you’ll grow to appreciate as you age together. A healthy happy marriage is something you create, it’s not based on an emotion that arises out of thin air. The real reasons to love someone unconditionally are the ones you discover over time. The more you love someone, the more attractive they become. When you assume that love is just a feeling that just happens, you are always at the whim of it, rather than consciously creating it in your life. To love really is an emotional capability, not a sexual capability. … More Grow to love you

“Why won’t you say something?” Nifemi yelled. Then in the twinkle of an eye, she could almost see moments from her life flashing before her eyes. How her parents had almost disowned her when she disobeyed for his sake. She did it for the sake of the love that she believes in, without any inkling that it would someday wane. Nifemi fell to the ground and broke down in uncontrollable tears. She was so furious that she didn’t know when picked herself up and hit Olusegun across the face. He was shocked then angered.

“Forgive me”, was all he said before he left the room, leaving her crying on the terrazzo floor. … More Story telling: Series 16

Can someone tell me how to retain relationships? I seem to have lost all of mine.

So, we’ve had our moment of breaking the ice and having that first unbelievable conversation, what next?

In some cases, our views of people from afar are most times contrary to who they really are. You can’t tell a nervous person, for instance, from afar until you’re close enough to something or an activity that brings out that trait in them. In some cases, it’s better to appreciate people from afar and eulogize their seemingly perfect persona that makes you want to be close to them. I say this because once we get to know people, with all their good sides and bad sides, their flaws and weakness, we tend to let those traits form some sort of diminishing returns on our relationship with that person. A friend said to me once that it takes a sincere person to know you for who you are, imperfections and all, and still love you unconditionally. … More Can someone tell me how to retain relationships?

Don’t cry for me

It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I’ve done
You won’t believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she’s dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you
I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn’t stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
