Why Did I Ever Love You?

Bring me a pen and a paper
And I'll let the ink flow like a lady's monthly issue

Today, I want to have an intercourse with the sheets...
Hit it so hard that it rips apart
I'll unhook and fling my plights at this processed timber
I'll go slow and hard,
the pleasures of this affair will be heard far and wide
If only pages could moan...

I have always known you to be a coward
One very afraid of being rejected
I tell you, I feel the same way too
I guess that makes us even
So, let me pour my raw rage,
Unleash my creativity on this naked piece of paper
I know you'll never get to see this
So, I'll bare my heart in this piece

Why did I ever love you
Knowing you were a poet
Why did I fall in love with someone
who romantize and exaggerates love
I fell for your lines
Heaven knows I fell hard
They came in soft whispers
Caressing my soul,body and mind
And they ravished me
Oh! Poor me
They engaged me in a mental coitus
Now, see what I've delivered
Many lines filled with hurt.

Have a positive day.
Love you loads.

My Father!

So, guys it's official. I'm back! Yippee!

 After the too long hiatus, I'm finally back. It wasn't an intentional break though but let's just thank God I'm back. I promise to keep you glued, educated and informed like I used to .

 So I'm starting a series called, My Father. It entails most of my childhood experiences centred around my father.
There's no better way to get over a memory than laughing over it.
So join me as I laugh over pain, laugh at the sorrows and make good comedy out of it.
Growing up has a way of bringing so many nostalgic thoughts to a person. You see, time actually does a lot in lightening up things.

Situations that seemed so gargantuan could easily be eased by the cooling balm of time. So, this is one of those thoughts.

My father and I used to live together. I had a step sibling who was a baby about this time. You know, I remember my dad taking me out on my birthday, buying me nice stuffs and all but I think…

Anyways, I have always dreamt of being a chef. Chef Grace? Gracie the chef? Whatever. I'll figure it out later. 

So today, I'm going to be teaching us how to make Ogbono soup. I love the soup even though I'm not Igbo. We call it (Apon) in Yoruba parlance. My grandma thought me this method so be of good cheer, it's going to be delicious. Old women can cook for Africa.

Crayfish, blended
Meat or fish or chicken whatever you like
