Say Goodbye_blog


I don’t want to say goodbye

But I have to say goodbye

I see you slipping away

Fading away

As this illness pulls you closer

Into its cold embrace

I see you

But I don’t see you

Everything seems surreal

If only I could have five more years

A little more time with you

Because I’m really not ready

I’m not ready to say goodbye

I don’t want to say goodbye

This is all so unfair!

Oh, please…

I’m not ready!

I’m not ready to say goodbye!

You lied!

You are a liar!

How quickly I fell

How high the fall

How dare you lie so beautifully?

A cunning thief you are

Disguised in pretty clothes

And a sweet accent

Oh, I fell!

For your lies

I fell!

You lured me into your web

You spoke about greener pastures

Painted pictures so enchanting

I was deceived

By your promises and tales

I put my needs ahead of logic

I let my desire for a false freedom

Lead me into captivity

What a fool I was!

Captured I was not

But captured I am now

I’ve been chained

Chained in a land I know not

Chained to a bed I know not

Sold to give pleasure to men I know not

The days pass by

 I treasure them not

My choices, I despise

My life, I hate

My captor, I detest


Where art thou?!

Bring me back those days

Those days I had it all

But wanted more

Send a note to my mama and papa

Tell them I love them

Tell them I was scammed

Tell them I miss them

Tell them I’ll be back home soon


If wishes were coins

I would have bought my freedom

But here I am

Enslaved by the devilish schemes of my captor

My master

He holds a whip!

Pray for me!

Pray for me!

He is coming soon…no…

He is right at my door!

Please, pray for me!

My captor is the devil!

A thousand petals

Wine and chocolates


Always perfect!

Perfect to me

Never perfect to you

A hundred proposals

And a hundred no’s

A thousand nights of tears

Heartbreaks and regrets

Tormented thoughts from all your no’s

Why “no”?

What’s wrong with me?

And once again

I try again

The perfect scene

A diamond ring

My charming smile

My special tux

And still you say no!


Give me a “yes”!

A “yes”…or something close to it

I crawl back into my hole

And swim in an abyss of tears





The shackles that bind me

 This has now become my mission

I no longer love you

I’m just…

I just…

And then it dawns on me

“I’m addicted!”

Addicted to your indifference

Addicted to your rejection

Addicted to your “no’s”

I’m an addict!

Lost in a cocoon of misery

A star-eyed lunatic

In search of a “yes”

From the lips of my tormentor

I no longer love you

What I feel is…


Come on!

I need a “yes”!

Free me from this misery!

Just give me a “yes”!

Say yes!

Please say yes!

When did we throw caution to the wind?

Living life with no care

Unconcerned about the distance between us

The silence

Those conversations that should have happened


When did we become strangers?


This was never the plan

It all started out so well

Now, it’s slowly becoming a distant memory

You seem to have moved on

Have you?

I can’t tell

Cos’ you are now a stranger

Please, when did we become strangers?!!!


I still remember how hard I fell for you

How silly I acted around you

I would walk all night just to see you at dawn

So far away I lived from you

Yet, the distance didn’t really matter

The distance made me fight harder

So tell me…

When did we become strangers?


We both did wrong

We let the fire burn out

We got so comfortable

We no longer threw in the logs

We watched the fire die

Tolerating our flaws

But not really caring for each other anymore

Oh lord…that’s how we became strangers!


Here I am reminiscing

Waiting for you to come back to me

And there you are

Holding on to the ring of another

What can I do to win your heart again?

Tell me, Mi Amour

I can’t bear the “what ifs”

I can’t be a stranger anymore

Your Love

Your love 1


Take me to your secret place

Let me abide under your shadow

As I drink in your beauty

Shaken by your glory

I worship!

Intoxicated by this love

Sweet and filling

True and untainted


You are love!

You are Lord!

I ponder on this love story

All I see is the cross

The nails

The pain

And then the glory

Oh, my best love story!

It might mean so little to some

But to me it means everything

You mean everything to me

Your love is unquestionable

Your love…like a soft blanket around me

Protecting me

Molding me

Keeping me warm

I yield to you

Freeing myself to be filled

To drown in this beautiful pool of perfection

Perfect love

I yield to you

Perfect you are

Perfect your love is

Your love

My perfect blanket

A little love

A little care

A little food

A little of what you have

Just a little to quench this thirst

A little, my dear

I see you complain of that which you have

I hear you complain that it’s not exactly what you want

If only I could have just a little

If only I could sip a little

To quench this thirst

If only I could nibble a little

And quench this probing hunger

If only I could rest a little

Under the mango tree you care not for

If only I could lie down a little

On that bed you hate so dearly

If only I could laugh a little

At the jokes you no longer find funny

If only I could live a little

This life you take for granted

And maybe enjoy a little of this health you don’t even notice you have

Good health I do seek for

To have a little of what you have

To sit under the roof of this house you no longer desire

To hear your little ones babble and laugh

This you no longer have time for

I hear them ask for you every day

But you are never around

If only you could see

Truly open your eyes

And notice how fast the clock ticks

Not slow


Every second you lament

You lose a moment

A moment you shouldn’t have lost

You lose a moment to give thanks

A moment to laugh a little

A moment to live a little

If only you can hear the clock

Truly hear the clock tell the time

Oh, it speaks!

Tick-tock. . .tick-tock

Time goes. . . Time goes

Open your eyes, precious one

See how fast the clock ticks

It speaks!

Smile more

Love more

Laugh more

Live more

Love some more

Live some more

Tick-tock. . .tick-tock

Let Me Weep

Let me weep.jpg


Let me weep

Let me weep that I may be satisfied

That I may flush out this pain deep within

Deep within my heart

This pain that causes me to…ohhhh!

This pain!

Birthed from betrayal, loss and grief

Let me weep!

Let me weep and rid myself of this filth

I don’t wish to choke

I just want to purge myself of this yoke

It’s heavy and it’s…it’s heavy!

It’s been five days now

And it’s been weighing me down

I feel twenty pounds heavier

Let me weep!

Let me get rid of this yoke!

It’s heavy!

Let the dam break

Let the tears pour

Oh, let them pour!

My heart weeps

My eyes leak

Let me weep until I can weep no more

Let me weep!

Little Writer Girl

I see your pain

You sit in the shadows

You pour out your heart in ink

Your sheet is filled

Your lips may be pink

But you speak no words

All you do is sink!

You sink into an abyss of sorrow

You glance at the mirror and see another

A wrong reflection!

You see the “you” you are creating

A picture of a girl lost in the woods

A child forgotten

A lion injured

You sit on your favorite chair

You spill ink like blood

You stain the sheets of white

Every word tells its own tale

You block out the world

And dish out words

You are disappearing with every written word

You don’t even know it

I see the art

But the image of you is faded

I squint to really see you

But it’s blurry

Where are you?!!

Where is the girl I used to know!!!

Come back home!!!

Don’t be lost in the world you are creating

You are needed here too

Don’t relocate to your world of fiction

Someone here needs you to be great

Someone needs you to see herself clearly

But you are far away

Your words remain

But you are fading

What’s going on?

Wake up, Writer Girl!

Come back home!

Love awaits you on this side

Love you will never see if you fade away

Love you deserve

Love you don’t need to earn

Come back, Writer Girl!

Come home!

Search for me if you wish

Great and sound words I’ll teach

A path to truth I’ll lead

I’ll pull out the weeds

To give you counsel so priceless

All because of me you’ll be fearless

See how you glow in the dark

I’ll make you leave a mark

They might envy

They are all folly-savvy

Don’t let them break your spirit

Don’t let them make you retreat

Move closer and let me teach you a thing or two

I’m not too far…put on your shoes

I’ll bring you great wealth

I’ll teach you how to live in good health

I’ll make you lead great nations

And give you the antidote to all situations


Take a step closer

Let me introduce myself to you


“My name is Wisdom

Heed to my instructions

And I’ll protect you”

i do2

I do

Only to you I do

You have no clue

How much I love you

I mean it when I say I do

Even in those moments when I don’t feel so

I still do

To you I do

Forever I do

I pledge my heart to you

Forever I love you

Who knew I would love you

To the point of “I do”

Well, here I am saying, “I do”

To serve you and only you

To cherish you and only you

To love you and only you

To laugh with you

To walk with you

To have kids with you

To grow old with you

Here I am with you

At the altar again…me and you

Renewing my vows to you

You know I do…

I do love you and only you!
