  • When girls my age were outside baking mud pies in the sand and playing ‘husband and wife’ with the boys next door, I was in my room, huddling under the blanket with a Mills & Boons novel in my hands.

    To say […]

  • One moment tumbling into another:

    Our eyes meet across the room

    Lock and probe,

    Probe and take;
    !–more–

    You probe,

    I give.

    I probe,

    you give.

    Language… silence;

    Speech… flustered

    I […]

  • Hi, my name is Frank and I’m gay. I know it sounds terribly weird introducing myself this way but I have come to the realization that the more I say it, the better my chances of accepting it.

    I have always been […]

  • This is a lovely way to draw an analogy..you write with a brilliance that is riveting and engaging.
    I love your use of imagery
    ‘Lagos herself welcomed us. Arms opened, throbbing, alive.’
    ‘Lagos, Lagos, Lagos, […]

  • let me just say this and get it over with…Girls DO NOT REEK WHEN THEY ARE ON THEIR PERIOD!!! I would appreciate it if that annoying analogy were done away with.That being said,your poem is nice but the use of so […]

  • Jay *smh*..you almost had me there for a moment walahi!
    I can almost relate to what you feel for Asa except i can’t get a wet boxer out of it.*sigh* lol!
    Good one!

  • I take a trip down memory lane

    Every now and then to keep me sane;

    The world’s a-hurtling and the people a-fleeting

    And I cannot smile for them today,

    I cannot say words I never mean to say;

    I take […]

  • @Samuel..thanks for taking out the time to even read it luv…as for the fleshed out sentence? that was a typo that my usually keen eyes missed..thanks for noticing it..cheers!

  • @Seun…one word from the master himself and it is intense? i am honored! lol! thank you!
    @Kaycee…speechlessness in the form of a ‘wow’ is enough compliment for me..merci!
    @Adaobi…of course i know what it is […]

  • You creep up on me like a shadow

    Slouching sideways, color as dark as a starless night;

    You are my worst nightmare come to life

    A creature in thought Fleshed out

    with every choice I made,

    My own […]

  • Dude!(you’re a dude right? no gray areas? lol!)…this was AWESOME!!!!
    I saw the first two lines and i was like ‘this is a winner already’..your writing is explosive! its ‘all up in your face’,loads of gusto and […]

  • Ok..this is like a cross between a poem and a story? it starts out as a poem but then the language and the style of writing changes.You should be careful about maintaining a single style for your work.if its […]

  • Dude!(you’re a dude right? no gray areas? lol!)…this was AWESOME!!!!
    I say the first two lines and i was like ‘this is a winner already..your writing is explosive! its all up in your face,loads of gusto and […]

  • Wow! Errr…my theories were dead wrong but at least i was right about the fact that Dada would end up being a total bastard! Well done Meena…this was indeed brilliant.I was eager to find out what dreaded […]

  • You have managed to string all of us along quite nicely.I can’t for the life of me figure of what will come next but i have a couple of theories..you did great with this one love.I get the feeling I’ll end of […]

  • This was a lovely read Xikay…women are wooed by well placed words unfortunately and this proves it! lol…i hope you find her again because she obviously inspired you…

  • Hmmmm..you took a lot of time to describe the kiss and the sensations that it gave the girl but like Tola said,the characters were kind of distant.

  • The land of Las Gidi isn’t dreamy at all once you get enmeshed in its hustle and bustle..Good story dude!
