Hurtful sounds of melodic trumpets

August 17, 2012

A cigarette in your hand. I know it’s been long since you smoked one. Snugged between two fingers like you just took a drag, and then got distracted by something. Or someone. A dry leaf in the other hand; autumn it seems. Although it doesn’t seem like its cold otherwise, I don’t see a jacket. […]

Dream of dreams

May 5, 2012

I dream of lost days I dream of mending my ways I dream of you standing on a mountain I dream of dreaming of souls full of wishes   You dream of an open cage You dream of anger and rage You dream of soaring high beyond reach You dream of dreaming for that one […]

Life is death

January 15, 2010

Darkness lives and darkness dies, Empires torn by untrusted spies, Lessons learnt by guilty eyes, Ever lost yet no one tries.

The last feast

March 6, 2008

Nothingness

October 18, 2007

People come to see his show everyday. Its one of the best in town. People come to laugh with him. Laugh at him. Make fun of him when they go back home. They love his act. Most of them know it inside out for they’ve seen it many a times, but no one knows the […]

Whispers persist

October 13, 2007

“What now?”  Konshenz asked. Ayemi  lifted his head from his hands and said, “What makes everyone so happy and me so sad? Why do they want to be together and me alone? Why do they laugh as i cry?” “You are not them Ayemi. You’re different. You need to learn alot.” “But how long will […]

Reluctant

October 11, 2007

“So I guess this is good bye” she said as she pushed her hair behind her ear. She looked just as pretty as the day I met her a few months ago. The airport was buzzing with so many people it was almost getting difficult to think. Not to mention where we were standing we […]
