With-Stood Them All, On The Walk-Way To Your Heart
clouds cover the face of the heavens, it may just be for a little
time; when it will yet be dark as if the night will never be stolen
by the crafty hands of the dawn. But with the suns momentary
shielding; behind the partitioning of the clouds, it is from the
waiting strength that it is encouraged to hold on, persevere and
endure for the magical wade of the winds.
Little more time
of the winds movement, there will be another movement, this
time downwards, cascading and crest falling into a runway of the tinny
fragments; dropping into the pool of a collected fluid, still harvested,
for the days that would be without rains.
will be rains, there will be waters, and the plain will be wet of the
I have never had in abundance, like of the heavens fall; the words
to say how much I am set to love you.
It may be shocking to hear, and rather more stupid for me to say, that
I am not desperate about you
in any what-way that would picture
a mindset of if its not you, it will never be anybody else
is considered so stupid by me, and I consider anybody that upholds this
statement in a relationship as a mere lair, cos in little time of reaching
a dead end, such a person will be very quick to explore some other way
I am not scared to be stripped-off of this regalia that I so much desire,
for I know that I will never go naked. Not because the dress is not
beautiful enough, but of the possibility that it may belong to some
As to the issue of a failed attempt, High Bee Kay, I am an expert in
handling a failing line, it will never make me sad nor happy, life is
born in the heart of so many failures, if we all had choices, we would
have preferred to be born in the personalities of the peoples that we
have failed to become.. why have I thought and written so much about
this failure, yes, for its the climax of all happenings.
Mine will never be of a do or die, I will always want things to happen
as they would have naturally happen. Many times when we do not get what
we want, its not because we do not deserve them, but our patience may
be in the heat of trials, and if we could only wait for a little bit,
the miracle could have happened It's more fascinating to me for you
to have come from the Law background, I respect ladies rights
to wish and to un-wish.
And I will not want to convince any lady against her will not to give
me her love, for it is very dangerous, in the sense that I will be forcing
or bewitching her, of which, when the chips are down, it will simply
dawn on her that she never wished to love but, what really happened
was a simple hypnotism. As much as I have decided to love you, my gesture
is nothing but a mere ranting that may ultimately consume me, if and
when you do not love me back.
It is all about knowing what you want, I dont know the man of
your dreams yet, I dont know if I have anything that is close
to it at all, but I know that if the man of your dreams will be your
man enough, he must have a great love for you, and he must be lost in
you, and it must be only you that can really find him out of his lost
Tony once said that may you never marry a woman you love, but
a woman that loves you to what you want.
High Bee Kay, I dont know how many were the people that have come
in this way to you, but in all that have come and the ones to come,
it is of your singular honor to pick a love
but let it be one that
loves you also. The questions that I should rather seek to answer is
that of whether you could ever love me to a marry or not,
and that underlines so many other matters. I thank God that I have met
you, you are one of the memorials of my life, you may not know how much
significant knowing you is to my life, but really, you have given me
another vantage point to review my world. I will be glad if you
could love me
but also there is something I will not like to miss
of you, though I am yet to have a full grab of it- your friendship.
How would you be my friend and I will not mistake it for the more
than the friendship that I am looking for,
just tell me all
that I will be having from you, and in clear hearing I will identify
what you are dispensing and my boundary, but I understand that love
knows no bounds
But, if the lines are really falling on us in the right places, it is
better we begin to talk about it, leave the bulk of the unknown lots
to the caring hands of God and let Him midwife them in the labour room
We can always try things out. What we do not know will for eternity
out run what we think we know. But thinking through my narrow minds,
I can see a ray of hope. In all sincerity, I can see some light
in nature, but I dont really know if the pair of glasses on my
eyes arent due for a replacement
if what you see is what
you get, then I am doomed for good.
I have expected to suffer a death since some fourteen days ago, please
ma, do not hesitate to curse me in the name of love, so that I will
cease to live in the planet of your love
however, my continuous
living may be stressing you somehow
I will like to die as soon
as you want me dead. I dont want to be a nuisance in your life
I dont want to outlive my destiny, there is always a time to go
in vain your bangles may be casting.
But without being an Ajitoni or a Durodola I will love to live in your
planet of love, I will like to be the king of your queendom, in proficient
grip, your bangles have cast
I am held bound to your heart
kindred calls have been cut away from night dreams, the vultures that
nest on the iroko trees behind my fraternity hut have all gone on a
flight of no return, I am left behind-alone, caught between the warm
hands of love and the cold hands of rejection
will you give me
a final safe and prevent another death.
So many crazy things criss-cross my thought, particularly when you are
and they could be amazing to hear
of a night spend
together, walk along the brook of awba, an evening stroll in the gullet
of oduduwa road, wild jokes and electrified plays and so forth and so
you. High Bee Kay, this is the escalade to what I dream of as life.
I really want to stay by you.
I have taken the right turn into your heart, I am placing a knock on
the threshold of your love, I am so sure you are at home, would you
allow me in
am not scared of the cold out here, it has accompanied
me here, I am not looking at the horror of the darkness out here, I
have with-stood them on the walk-way to your heart.
This is 3:49hrs, the dead of the night is nearing a resurrection unto
the waiting morning, there will be an electrifying shout soon from the
Mellanby Mosque, my sleeps had departed with you, they told me they
are keeping a watch over your night-body.
So many nights ahead will still be pregnant, with a baby from the several
mental-intercourses, do you care to know what they will born, they will
give birth to dreams, goals of life, and one other thing of my heart.
I miss you to every moment that passes without you, the more I think
about you, the more fond-ing it all becomes.
Definitely I am sick, and I seek no physician, my memory of you glows
like emerald each moment
I couldnt just trail you
Id rather be your slave, than seeking a release.
Ibukun, I am for real, take a risk and be the star
lets take the
walk and see whereto this drive takes us to, I am sorry I may be knocking
the door to your heart when you are least ready to have anybody in
but it may be god you build a company now, igba ara ni a maa n bura
this may the time, who knows, take a leap and you will be air borne,
reaching onto the skies.
In the real times, I have wondered why I am just knowing you when it
remained a few seconds for me to take a leave, but you know that bi
o se wu oluwa ni o nsola re, you may not know why yet
I am packing my loads, I am set to fly away, I am ready to have you
on my flight, are you willing to be carried along. Madam, I dont
want to leave you behind, please come with me.
It may be injurious to attempt stretching your legs while you are yet
to sit, one may kiss the ground in a fatal fall... I dont know
whether I have taken a sit yet, but if I have the sit already,
can I stretch my legs:
See you more often like I will like, get to talk with you more often
get to know you more, get to be with you more
More and more fore
more things, like the Olivers twisting gaits.
