Ezinne was breathing hard and fast. She had just returned from an intense jogging session which ended with running. She was back home, sitting on the floor with her legs spread out, and her head banging. It’d been a good one for as long as it was good. She hadn’t run so far and fast … Continue reading Rip-ped
You moved to a new town and your life was rather boring. And then,one day,you saw him. He was young and handsome and had top-notch dress sense. You had to pray for forgiveness countless times,because you spent most of the long Sunday Service hours staring at him and thinking boredom-alleviating thoughts. You were too shy … Continue reading Dream guy: Metamorphosis
You replay, in your mind, everything that has happened in the last 24 hours. Just that length of time ago, you had a wife and a son. You had a family. And now, you’re trying to come to terms with being wifeless. You can’t believe she did what she did. You call her a bitch. … Continue reading Those Very Words
It started gently,all of this You walked right in,with so much ease With simple words and light banter Feeling like we’d known each other Much longer. Maybe forever. I knew your soul was beautiful. It started slowly, and not by plan Simple serendipity You took hold just like a vine And wrapped yourself around my … Continue reading Heart Strings
Pelumi moaned. She’d be waiting for this moment for so long. She’d even begun to wonder if she’d only imagined her Oga giving her those lingering sexy looks. But,no! She’d been right, obviously. If not, there’d be no reason why Oga Peter would have left madam in their room,just to come and caress her naked … Continue reading Oga!! O Ga!!

I’ve been broke. Horribly broke. Terribly broke. I’ve been so broke that N100 is ‘big money’ to me. And How I hate being broke! I decided to ‘ínvest’ my money in beads and wire (yeah. I make beaded jewelry when the spirit is upon me) and I’ve been broke ever since. Do you know … Continue reading It’s Not Easy Being Me: A Broke-ass
It all feels so unreal. Somto is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I met him just two years ago, and it’s been heaven since then. Tall, fair and handsome, with a body the men on the covers of romance books would kill for, and a smile that could turn Medusa to butter, … Continue reading For the love of…him

Like many *scratch that*MOST of the things said in this ‘Commission’, that got me thinking-are we trying to pay God for His services? okay, so I need to get that promotion,and … Continue reading Something Extraordinary
Erin sat by her window, wondering if she’d die of hunger or of boredom. It wasn’t that she didn’t have the money for food. She just didn’t want to go to the cafeteria alone. She hated crowds and the way the boys stared. Her roommate and most of her course mates had gone home for … Continue reading Obsession
She met him, The dreaded one, The one as dark as a moonless night. She met him, He who is feared, Whose presence turns blood into ice. She met him, Talk of the town, That bi-sexual, child-loving pervert. She met him, That twisted mind, Underestimated by many. She met him, The … Continue reading Death
These haiku were written during a chapel service this morning, during which I was bored almost to death. I guess boredom can inspire too. He thought he loved you I showed him how wrong he was And now, he’s with me. Why don’t you get it? I will never marry you I just … Continue reading Haiku Born Of Boredom
I am proudly Nigerian, and I believe that no matter what, no other country will ever be like ours. We are essentially happy people. Where else do people smile at a camera when their homes have just been flooded? Where do people live in empty cartons and under bridges and still have huge-ass grins? Back … Continue reading NOLLYWOOD: OLD vs NEW
He teased her hair; the chronic flirt! He made her clothes cling to her curves He made her laugh. He made her run Then he worshiped her,inch by inch Till she trembled from his touch Whipped up an aura of magic around her,he did The blasted scoundrel watched me squirm! That devious being! Rogue … Continue reading Flirt!
