Brother Ferdinand

Sunday; her favourite day of the week. Eyram was always awake and ready, way before the alarm would go off. By 6.30 am she would be at the church premise. A mere church member yet she was always early as if she was the head usher. Her being early had an agenda; to sit at…

Eating with the Enemy 😈😈😈😈

 Nouna, I hope this finds you well. I promised to tell you someday, didn’t I? Well, here it goes: Today marks three years after everything ended. I pray you find some meaning to it. It started as a minor crush. I was a fresh Senior High-School-leaver at home with basically nothing to do. Big brother was on long vacation…

The Devil in my clothes ii

  Previously: “The day she died, I lost it! I was in for blood and I know he must have sensed it …” The day she died, I lost it! I was in for blood and I know he must have sensed it because he totally disappeared from my sight never to appear again. Maybe…

hat time I dread has come again; the time to lay down to sleep. The mere thought of waking up drenched in sweat from those nightmares has me gripped by fear and always on edge. I wish I could call them mere dreams but no, they are very real; a part of my life I dare not speak of….

It’s 3:17am… (What my Immaturity Cost Me)

Dear Elizabeth-Christina,  Its 3:17am and I’m awake already. Truth is, I have been awake since midnight and trust me; this is not one of my usual nocturnal antics.  Last night’s party was pretty awesome, full of laughter and amazing people with great minds. It was a party that was supposed to swallow my pain and…

PREVIOUSLY: “…We had become joined at the hip, and this time, I knew without a doubt that she was going to be my girlfriend the moment I asked. She travelled for a while and next I heard, she was engaged to be married to someone from Uganda. Eh …” I was on the verge of…

tHe UnReAliStIc CrUsH

I wouldn’t call myself a Joseph, but here I was. It was the same person each time, same dream for about a month and over. She was absolutely perfect; slender body, dark in complexion, bright eyes, and pointed nose… I could go on and on and on. For a woman with such remarkable beauty, I…

5 Years 

I saw him again after 5 years… 5 long years. I was very much astounded by his appearance I did not even see him hug me, neither did I hear him when he kept blubbering about how much he had missed me and was looking all over for me. 5 excruciatingly painful years; I just could…

What She Taught Me…

We were childhood friends; loved each other to the brink of death; my partner in crime, or so I thought. Our first meeting was of such unimaginable bliss; I would never forget. At 5 years old we already knew anytime we met that the glint we saw in each other’s eyes meant it was time…

Let me tell you a story. The story of the woman I lived all of my life with; for better and for worse, in sickness and in health, till death did us part. Don’t get it twisted; the Lady was not my wife. I call myself her faithful friend, much like a dog with its…

“Interestingly Fishy…”

  Kofi was always one that loved very deeply. He loved and cared for others so much that sometimes it was scary. The good side to it was, he was all so bubbly and lively, you would dare not say no to his personality, unless of course you only exuded negative energy. He was 24…
