Deadly (School Boy) Crush on Bubbllinna

Deadly (School Boy) Crush on Bubbllinna

I don’t beg her to believe

Because I am begging God

She does not rebuke me.

I knew her when I was still a newbie, thanks to her avid reading and indefatigable commenting on virtually everything posted here on NS. Sometimes her reading and commenting has left me in doubt, does she really read all those stories/articles/poems or does she just skim through.

Something tells me she does. She can’t give such honest opinion, crystal clear critique and play Editor-in-Chief (as some NSians called her, names withheld for security reasons) by scanning through what she reads.

It is due to that I found myself smitten (literally), losing good hours’ sleep because of this Bubbllinna.

I have a deadly (school boy) crush on Bubbllinna, reason enough to awaken the dead buried teenage fantasies and dreams.


She’s a star, she feeds on my weakness

I’m her night time, her beauty scattered in darkness

I fall in love with the night, watching my star.


She stands out from others through a distinctive and appealing style (of her writing, literary credulity and philosophies reduced to babble of ideologies by man).


At the same time she’s vague, and ethereal

Keeping her distance, letting us imagine more than is real.


Her dreamlike essence she embellishes, courtesy of cyberspace, works on my (if not our) consciousness, not even aware of how much we want to be like her (I mean like the star), reading everything that comes our way avidly, giving honest critique and opinion of it (like a know-it-all) and be part of the editorial board she is the editor-in-chief.

This Bubbllinna, who Elove Poetry called ‘A Gem on NS’, projects a glittering but elusive presence, just like the stars spread on the quilt of black dust above every night (that Romeos and Juliets fall in love with, and Casanovas aggrandise strategies of launching insidious attacks on their conquests).


Oh my star, a million years away

My addiction, glittering illusion

Dreams of a million years closer.


DISCLAIMER: I warn you that if you allow me to take (his/her) place in your heart, no power on earth can tear me away from it.

Sister Mathilde to Casanova


For the Record:                     I’m no Casanova




To Bubbllinna,

My head is intact. EP has let me live for another day (to die tomorrow). Instead of the head in the silver platter is my last supper.

  1. This is serious oh

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      it sure is. @schatzilein

  2. You never can tell. Bubbllinna has unhindered unique attitude that left so many like me wondering whether she is human or superhuman. She is a peer of goddesses or something like that.

    @vincentdepaul weldone.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      Thats the word @ basittjamiu, goddess she is.

  3. Hehehe….@elovepoetry can you hear that from @vincentdepaul what do you have to say @elovepoetry.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @basittjamiu, am hoping elove doesn’t see this, but wouldn’t she?

      1. @basittjamiu, I can hear what @vincentdepaul is saying. Bubbllinna has an idea of what I will do. Hell knows no fury than a woman scorned…. vince has said it himself. I let him live to die another day, deliver his head in a silver platter (where am serving him his last supper).

  4. Hmmmm, the same Bubbllinna I dizzy dazzled about kissing???

    This means war…

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @clemency, kissing!? Well, i fantasize about everything.

      But watch out, this war is lost twice by those who lurk behind than those on the battlefield.

      1. @clemency, so the next thing we are seeing is like ‘Kissing Bubbllinna’ or ‘Dizzy-Dazzled by Bubbllinna’ or something to that effect?

        @vincentdepaul, you are right.

  5. Tip: if ya’ll wanna show yo seriousness to win over Bubbles, for starters:

    Write berah poetry,

    Send her 5 thousand naira worth of airtime

    Be ready to make bitter enemies with her best friend on NS.

    Hehehe, u don’t know her best friend on NS? Whoa, then pause o. Really, pause.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @Hymar, flounting our wealth/reachs with a girl like Bubbs (not boobs) DOes not win you any points (woe unto you if you still think in monetary terms when it comes to crushes, passions, lusts and ultimately love).

      For the enemies, let them come. I will offer them tea.

      1. @Hymar, if that’s your idea of expensive, stop insulting @sibbylwhyte. She is not that cheap (and materialistic I guess).

        1. @Elovepoetry, I will overlook the unguarded sentiments of yo comments seeing you don’t know jack shit about Sibbyl and I.

          Sibbyl saw what I wrote and we both had a good laugh over it. And yhu come here to tell me I am insulting? You come here to talk about Sibbyl not being this or that. Yhu can’t even do much but ‘guess’



          1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

            @Hymar, should I come in between? You are going ballistic man. @elovepoetry‘s dry sense of humour. Seems like you too have just taken what she has said wrongly.

            1. @Hymar, I will do the honourable thing and end this conversation (for the first time in my life walk away).

  6. Some of us have known the gem in this classy lady for a long time. @vincentpaul, you captured it succinct terms.No exaggeration. i hope she catches the message and know indeed that you are no casanova

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @sambrightomo, you are right. Thats why i started by declaring my fear. This Bubbllinna has really captured the imagination, and hearts of many.

  7. Lobatan.

    @sibbylwhyte, what charm did you do o. See as people dey die for you. The charm is now coursing through my system too.

    But sincerely, she is good. Her constant comments lightens so many hearts, and bring hopes to those whom negative criticism has drowned…

    Keep the work.


    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @kodeya, you have really known her as the hope of the crestfallen. Some people are just downright negative critics and @sibylwhyte comes to our aid. Thanks for reading.

  8. Not again!
    When she was first called a ‘gem’, I tried, but could not get jealous.
    But this one right now, have swept my lazy-laden feet off †ђξ ground and it has moved.

    With her constant comments, I too do wonder if she really reads everything. I also think that perhaps Bubbllinna is a name under which many capable hands can access. Perhaps too, I may never get to find out…but what difference will it make?

    Nice read and deserving too.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @Chime221, jealousy is healthy, helps keep da mind occupied.

      Something tells me Bubbllinna is the real deal, not just a name with tentacles.

  9. ronaldbellaz (@RonaldBellaz)

    This seems to be for old NS regular folks.

    Newbie like me, just dey read una discussion.

    1 day maybe i would have sumfin really tangible to say on matters of this reliance.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @RonaldBellaz, not very long ago i was a newbie, very soon you will know veterans like Bubbllinna & associates.

  10. Nalongo (@Nalongo)

    I hope you get a positive reply from her.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @Nalongo, my opening lines says it. With the lot of the likes of Bubbllinna, you never know, or can tell. I’m waiting for anything, but am forewarned, so am forearmed

  11. Hian! Deadly is good…

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @francis, Thanks for reading, and dropping a comment.

  12. Wow! I took a break, and got this lovely dish served. You shoulda seen my blush and grins.
    Vince, I knew you threatened me with your crush and I knew it would come, but I am still blown away. Why in freezing cheongdam, would I rebuke you? You need not even beg the Almighty 4 that. Lol. I laughed out loud at your disclaimer, sister mathilde huh? And it’s good to know you are no cassanova, that’d be a deadly crush!
    Ah! E let you live to die another day? Hmmm. That’s really kind of E. Hehe.
    I love this, esp. the mix of poetry and prose. Thank you very much, Vince, I over-appreciate.
    May the muses bless you more, so I can keep reading. Well done. $ß.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @sibbylwhyte, I always keep my promises, when I play that truth or dare game i go for the dare, so don’t you try to dare me take a grenade for you (hehehehehhehe).

      I like it, love it in fact, that you over-appreciate.

      E let me live to die another day, either way I shall die (and E serves my head on a silver platter, remember I have already had my last supper).

      We appreciate you, Bubbllinna.

      You are one of a kind.

      1. @sibbylwhyte, now I’m getting jealous. What did you do to us NSians?

        1. @elovepoetry. I have no idea cos I did nothing. Lol.
          By the way, throwing tantrums is so not you, so no blacklisting…
          Thanks for the kind words. Appreciate.

          1. @sibbylwhyte, thanks for the comfort (that I won’t be blacklisted, after all I won’t throw any tantrum – after careful consideration).

            1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

              @elovepoetry, nice decision

  13. @clemency. I am so not Helen of Troy. No need for a Trojan war. By the way, I sabi say no be me dizzy dazzle you. Hehe.
    @basittjamiu. I am just like the girl next door.
    @hymar. You wicked o, now you want them to think Bubb is materialistic ehn? I will tell @topazo or @olajumoke to give you injection overdose. And I will flog you and join. Lol.
    Mehn, although my head is encased in metal, it’s a wonder it hasn’t exploded. Seriously. Lol. Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words, truly.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      Tell them, Star Bubbllinna.

  14. @sambright. You sure saw the gem a long long time ago. Still remember the fun we had with your own piece. Shey all those aproko people wey bin dey dat time don run finish? Hehe.
    @kodeya. I wish say I go fit find the baba wey do dis thing for me without pay. Im jazz don hol ya computer? Na wah o. Lol. I’ll keep trying my best.
    @chime221. Jealous? Crucify Vince. Hehe. My account hasn’t been hacked, so it’s all just me. I love to read, and commenting is fun.
    @ablyguy. E don tey o. Na ur eye be dis?
    Thank you very much guys. Appreciate that you think me deserving.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @Chime221 can’t dare do that. Golgotha is mythological, and crosses are outdated. And if he tries, @sibbylwhyte, he can’t win.

      1. Seriously? Did you just dared me @vincentdepaul?
        Unfortunately, I can’t crucify you since I’m guilty of the same crime as you. A confession would do here: I’m falling too bro! And helplessly so…
        ride on joor!
        @sibbylwhyte, is it not enough that you pushed me? Now showing me where to fall is actually asking for too much.

        1. @Chime221, Vince said @sibbylwhyte is a star.

          Symbolize the star… it is out there, millions of years away, twinkling at us, making us wanna reach out for them…. they feast on our weakness. That’s what @sibbylwhyte is. She would remain in your stupid fantasies.

    2. I see dear Bubbllinna @sibbyllwhyte that you are clean.
      Keep your good work and may you never tire out.

  15. @sibbylwhyte, you deserve this and more….
    I just wish I wrote this @vincentdepaul. Although, declaring my love for Bubbles might have made people talk- seeing as I’m a woman. Lol.
    I support @hymar on this Vincent. Bubbllinna’s best friend will not be pleased at all.
    Seriously, good job.
    Welcome back @sibbylwhyte, we’ ve missed yah.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @olajumoke, yes, she deserves this, and more. You can still declare love for Bubbles, I remember @elovepoetry (with her identity crisis) had her first lesbian kiss sometime ago (and flaunted about here) like Britney Spears and Madonna.

      Bubbllinna’s best friend may take a flying leap (for all I care), Michael Learns says ‘I take, you take, and we take our time, ’cause no one owns us babe’. It is a free bird world (not seriously, let s/he not kill me o!)

  16. Nice one Vince. I ditto @Hymar

    Lols Sib. Not materialistic eh??? You deserve this.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @Mimiadebayo, thanks for reading and commenting. You guys and this @Hymar guy, you are beginning to spook me (is this Bubb’s BF some kind of a wrestler who can beat the hell out of me, or violent?)

  17. I wonder too, if she really reads the posts in detail. From her comments/posts one can tell that she has a big heart and a large cerebrum.
    Wonderful piece, well deserving too..

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @sylvia, thanks for supporting me on this. You saw it, she truly is.

  18. Hmmmm…it feels good to read honest appreciation here on NS. Bubbllinna aka @sibbylwhyte, let this show of love fire you to keep up the good work.

    Vincent, this is sweet.

    Well done. *Let me now go and prepare a befitting place for the honeymoon.*

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @chemokopi, thanks for giving me the thumbs up (this is sweet), at least you are not telling me to watch out for the BFF.

      Please do go and prepare for the honeymoon, I shall pay for the plane ticket.

  19. leroyA (@LEROY)

    Hi @vincentdepaul ,Just like I said/wrote on the @Elovepoetry tribute, One of the best thing that can happen to you is when your good works are recognized by contemporaries in your field of endeavor, which is what we have here of this tribute to @sibbylwhyte: Well done, Bro!!!
    @Sibbylwhyte; I don’t feel competent enough to comment on you as a a newbie, but I can say your comments are always fair and on point, guiding budding writers and established ones alike. You are one of the custodians of the traditions of N/S and a Standard bearer too. Please keep up the good work and long may this continue. More power to you.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @LEROY, your words need no more aggrandizing, you wouldn’t have been any more truer.

      Thanks for reading, and commenting. @sibbylwhyte is such a darling.

  20. I’m thinking of throwing tantrums in here, like the drama queen (bitch) I am, bitch around till I’m blacklisted. Would I be?

    @sibbylwhyte, you are one of a kind, but a star.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @elovepoetry, that’s unlike you. Never on NS has it ever been known, or seen, you bitching….

  21. ‘Stupid Fantasies’ you said? Well, you don’t need to add ‘stupid’, since fantasy is stupid by nature.

    Your message is clear though.

    1. @Chime221, pardon my repetition, but it was for emphasis.

    1. Vincent de Paul (@vincentdepaul)

      @banky that means?

  22. Omena (@menoveg)

    Interesting thread here. I’ll henceforth be on the lookout.
