The Black Poet and The White Girl 1

The Black Poet and The White Girl 1

Sometime ago, i met a white girl on MySpace and i went poetic on her. at the time, i was an unemployed graduate tired of life after University and NYSC. The internet cafe was my refuge and social media were my hideouts. For a while, we chatted and I found the whole episode interesting so I thought I could share it with you guys.

The messages are in chronological order. The ones in italics are hers. Watch the progression of the romance.

 Hahaha. You’re a funny guy. Thank you very much. Kisses!

Teasing you my

a blind man can tell
as sure as the hotness of hell
that you are an angel
and a darlin as well

Date: Mar 27, 2010 4:54 PM
You made me blush…  I wish I had such talent!

Date: Mar 28, 2010 9:33 PM
Cutey cutey hush
dont be in a rush
to let yourself blush
or get mushy mush
everyone is an agent
of one talent
which is meant
for self and general enjoyment
dont look far
within you is a star
find it my dear sweet smelling rose…you are a four-leafed clover

Date: Mar 29, 2010 9:47 AM
Yeah,everyone has something but not everyone has found what they have.  So how was your weekend?
P.s. Do you publish your creations somewhere?

Date: Mar 30, 2010 11:40 PM
Your talent is thicker
than you seem to know
you be its seeker
and it’ll show
and when you find it be meeker
cos that is the way to make is grow

i have over two hundred unpublished complete poems of 42 rhyming lines and more on a number of themes mainly love. I hope to get published one day when i get a sponsor. You can read a few on my facebook notes. My id is kukogho iruesiri samson. If you love poetry i’ll toast you with them. Be cool my dear.

Wow! That’s a lot! Maybe you’ll start with songs? Then it’ll be easier to find sponsors and it’s an advertisement of your thoughts  The ones that you send are very nice, they are so warm! I’m sorry, but I don’t have facebook…

Date: Mar 31, 2010 12:24 PM

Its a hard case
hard as i look
i find nou ur pretty face
on facebook
all i humbly ask
my dear

its not too hard to get a facebook acct. Is it?

Date: Mar 31, 2010 1:30 AM
 It’s not a hard thing, but I don’t like facebook.

Date: Mar 31, 2010 4:21 PM

to be there or not
so i’ll make no noice
twas just a wistful thot
but just like would all boys
i am hurt

JUST KIDDING! how is ur life treating you my dear…hope yur dreams are coming true

Date: Mar 31, 2010 6:17 AM
It’s treating ok. The sun is shining, the birds are singing… What could be better?

Date: Mar 31, 2010 5:49 PM


…shining….are u getting poetic on me……you married or dating!!!!!!????

Date: Mar 31, 2010 6:55 PM
Haven’t noticed that :)) I guess you have an influence on me.
I’m single.

Date: Apr 1, 2010 11:17 PM
If only my influence
could be felt in your heart
and bring a confluence
of our lifes’ paths
my soul would sing
till the earth rings
and all ears tinges
…happiness it’d bring
you a gem
a rare treasure
the best of them
one that defies measure
stay cool my dear Renata.

Date: Apr 1, 2010 8:22 PM
I read it five times before I could write anything… It’s very beautiful… Thank you!
Can I post it in my profile?

Date: Apr 2, 2010 10:44 PM
Its your fish
cos its on your plate
and what you wish
will be its fate
my tongue is on a leash
cant say what my heart creates
nor say what i wish
and that is to extol your traits
you are a four-leafed clover
a sweet smelling rose
there’s only one of you the world over
…my heart brews thee a prose.
Post it anywhere you wish to my dear

Date: Apr 2, 2010 8:35 PM

Thank you  I think I’m really falling in love with poetry…  Do you have a nickname that you sign or you use your name?

Date: Apr 3, 2010 2:50 AM
A sweet dame
the envy of angels
asks my name
and my pride swells
i’m a master in my game
my rhymes never the same
xikay is my nickname
that’l soon be painted in fame

pls fall in love with poetry n u’l neva get bored but i wish you would fall in love with me as well. Ha ha ha!

Date: Apr 3, 2010 6:24 PM
 Hahaha. You know, I just figured out that my page is too small for your rhymes!.. Thinking where I could put them all and where everybody could see! Any suggestions? :))

Date: Apr 4, 2010 1:28 AM
Paint them ön the sky
for all who pass by
with a silent sigh
to have reason not 2 cry
you love my words
but in truth they’re swords
i use to fight space and time
and make one our heart’s clime

i realy would love to put a voice to your face. How was easter saturday?

Date: Apr 4, 2010 6:33 PM
The sky would be all over painted with your poems…  It was nice, visited aunt, ate some eggs, did a presentation for my cousin, watch f-1 and here I’m!  And how was yours?

Date: Apr 4, 2010 9:54 PM
If these my eyes
behold in the skies
my lame words and rhymes
i’l spend my dimes
to chart a path
to your heart
i’l write you a song
brewed by my tongue
wit words i’l paint your face
on every litle space
my hear can spare
and hold you dear
even til the day
our hairs go gray
easter was fun, ate and drank much but visited nobody… would have been more fun with you beside me.

Pls tel me about Renata
(Do you have a serious relationship?)

Date: Apr 4, 2010 8:02 PM
The last lines are the most beautiful… They reminded me of two old people that always went holding with hands like 50 years before… A very rare view in these days. I’m single, no husband, no fiance, no boyfriend.

Date: Apr 4, 2010 11:20 PM
Same thing we be
you’re like me
i’m like thee
a bright future i see
the sun breaks the sky
the dark becomes light
and stays til the moön comes by
at night
you break the ice
you knot the ties
you clear the sighs
you banish the lies
were you a drink
i drown my soul
i’l not stop to blink or think
til i fil my bowl
i hear whispers
in the vespers

you are a good writer. i luv your blogs esp the piano. I am falling in luv wif ya. NB: you’ve not told me abt Renata

Date: Apr 4, 2010 9:32 PM
 I can get addicted to your rhymes :)) Don’t spoil me… Thank you… But I don’t know about it… It seems not perfect for me… I like the first one that I wrote (My Dream) more… I’m not a writer… Never was… What do you want to learn about me? What questions tickle your creative brains? I added a song… When I wrote “Piano sounds” that what was playing all the this time…

Date: Apr 4, 2010 11:55 PM
I’l match your addiction
with affection pure
and devotion
firm and sure
if i could lend a shoulder
to lay your head upon
i’l be a stil boulder
as you sleep on and on
my heart’s a wall
to keep love out
even Berlin wall had a fall
mine has fallen no doubt
if i had a lyre
a guitar or a harp
and you be here
we’d make music in my tarp
two hearts
wild harts
one path
in a desert

i wanna know al abt u. You r interestin. Piano is both a good song and the poem is fantastic. You shld write more consciously and you’l c ur talent. Can u date a blak dude?

Date: Apr 4, 2010 9:10 PM
 No! That’s you who has a talent! I have 3 that weren’t posted yet… But when I look at them it gives only sadness… I can’t write nothing that could bring light and happiness… Those poetries spread only pain, dark, sadness and nothing else… Only the last one is more lighter…
As I see you are a very sensitive and thoughtful guy, with a very big heart and open mind… What else I don’t know about you?
I’m an ordinary girl that is interested in everything, has passions for new things, look strange and difficult to understand.
I don’t sort people nor by color, nor by the place they live… The most important thing is what inside… As there lyes the person with whom you gonna speak and spend the time. I don’t care about anything else… And who cares about the angry person talk? They don’t have their lives… It’s up to me to decide with whom I can talk and with whom I don’t want.

  1. Nce Xikay..really nice..those rhymes will really get anybody with even a small appreciation of poetry…one question though, Are you guys still friends?

    1. wait until the part two…you’ll see how far..

  2. WOW. WOW. WOW.

    Xikay. You be bros. I loved this…every line of it. I liked the by-play…I like it when a poet steals a heart with his mastery of word and rhyme. This is one of the best (if not the best) I’ve read in a while. This is just….sweet.

    High five Jo!

    1. thank you bro. you don make my head big so tey no space for my colleagues to move in the office.

  3. Omo the poems make sense.
    Sharp Naija guys. Where is da part two.

    1. its already posted just wait for it to come out

  4. Wow! Xikay, my own suspicion be say de gal dey ya house already o…..I can’t begin to imagine any woman not giving her heart after getting such wonderful rhymes….simply beautiful!!!

    1. ha ha a. you make me laugh. the gal was far away in Europe and here i was in our own 9ja. thank you for reading

  5. shai (@shaifamily)

    Nice touch, lovely poem. I am hooking up with you broda.

    But come o, sure say no be erm, erm….erm u dey do for cybercafe all that time with the gurl?

  6. Xikay,I really like the poems and the progression in the relationship.I can’t wait to read part two.I hope you edited the content a little and changed her name though. I’m not sure I would want my business all over NS if it were me! :)

    1. fact is i did not edit the content or the name because there are over 200 people using her handle on MySpace

      thanks for reading

  7. xikay,

    Patent this shit, bro! Ok, so you can’t do that, but this is slamming. When’s the marriage? Kidding. But seriously, you have something here that’s UNIQUE, exactly what jaded editors and publishers look for. THIS IS A BOOK, if your counterpart signs on and agrees not to sue.

    Ok, if she doesn’t agree, write a fiction like this and send it to a publisher, agent, naijastories. They will eat it up. It helps that your spit rocks, and…rhymes! Dang, I couldn’t write so many rhyming and relevant lines if Beyonce offered to shake her tutu in my face.

    Nice one, man. (I go try this one on a hot mama I know, watch!)

    1. please try it but first save some money to travel out to see here because you will not like it when you get hooked and cant meet
