The first time I saw you

My heart fell.

The second time,

Drip Drop – into a well.

The third time,

“Fuck this, what the hell??”

The fourth, fifth and every time since,

My heart has, and always, remains yours.

I have reached a place of no return

That point where

If I had control over all my dreams

They would be about you.

And I would not be ashamed of it.

I desire to be with you always.

I feel lonely when I cannot see you.

It’s almost as if I am obsessed with you.

I hunger for your taste,

The feel of your soul touching mine.

I want to be the air that inhabits you

For a moment only.

So unnoticed and yet,

Absolutely necessary.

This connection isn’t going away,

It’s only getting stronger.

Because the more I spend time with you

The closer I want to be

You are never not in my thoughts.

Part of me wants to set you on fire

And hold you

While the flames consume us both,

To eat your heart

So I know that only I possess it entirely.

My whole life is about him

But what if his whole life

Isn’t all about me?

From the first time I saw you

I’ve belonged to you completely.

I still do.

If only you want me.

You are, after all, my favorite sin.



It’s five o’clock

I must be going home

Sometimes, I leave work so late and tired – it’s like the walk home seems to take forever

Other nights, I actually look forward to it

The cool evening breeze blowing softly on my face

Me listening to my turbidy playlist

Strutting the streets like the bad ass bitch that I am

Completely engrossed in my thoughts and having quite the intellectual conversation with myself.

And tonight felt like just that kind of night

The past few weeks didn’t make sense at all to me.

All I wanted to do was sit at home and cry

But mama would have none of that

I could tell she knew I was hurting

Except she couldn’t figure out why

And it worried her so much

“Go to work” she said, “keep yourself busy and make new friends. You’d feel better in no time”

Five minutes before five and I’m already out through the door

I wanted to take that walk today

I needed to breathe and think

The air felt right

Must be something about Friday nights

I was in no hurry to get home

I simply wanted to enjoy the moment

I like being alone

In my own space

It’s the only time I actually have control over everything

No drama

Just me

The roasted corn lady didn’t come today

Did she close earlier than usual?

Or was she sick?

I guess I’ll never know

When I get to the local drugstore, my first instinct is to pass by

But oh well, I might as well go in and greet

It’s the right thing to do after all

How do I remember all this?

Does it really matter? All that matters is that I do

I’m so close to home

And then there you are

What if I had ignored you?

What if I had been rude?

Too many “what if’s” running through my mind

My first thought was “He’s actually really cute” It was obvious that you knew it

You had that whole “I know I’m good looking” confidence oozing out of you

Such a complete turn on for me

Our conversation was brief, but right from the moment you parted your lips

You had me

And I think you knew it too

There was just something about you

I still can’t quite pinpoint

Is it the way you make me feel?

Wanted, needed, like a woman?

Or is it the way you say my name?

You whisper it like it’s something exotic

Or could it possibly be the way you make my entire life your business?

Or is it how you’re able to keep me in check all the time?

Do you have any idea how happy you make me? Do you?

Does that explain why I always want to be with you?

To smell your fragrance

Hear your voice

And feel your touch?

I could start a fire with what I feel for you

I swear, I could stare into your eyes all day

If only you’d let me

I wasn’t looking

But you found me

If this isn’t serendipity then I don’t know what else it is

Do you think the universe fights for souls to be together?

Some things are too strong and strange to be merely coincidences.

I want to make cute chocolate babies with you

And watch the sunset

And build empires

And grow old with you

There isn’t any denying the fact that some people enter your life,

At the exact point of need

It’s sometimes a coincidence

Most times, it’s fate

But whatever this is, I am certain you came to make me smile again

I know that what we have is complicated

Hard to explain

Forbidden maybe

But you be you and I’ll be me

Just for today

And let’s trust the future to tomorrow

Let the stars keep track of us

Let us ride our own orbits

And trust that they will meet

One day or perhaps never.

But for now, you’re mine and I’m yours

And that’s all that matters.

2017 📆

So another year is finally drawing to an end, yet again 🙄 (Sigh) and we are forced to look back and see what exactly we have achieved in the past eleven months!

I am literally tired of making new year resolutions I never ever stick to. You plan to do so much and end up doing nothing at all. I used to blame myself for being lazy and all but I’ve come to realize that in spite of all our relentless planning and scheduling and all, it is God that determines our path.


I’d probably be in my fifth year by now in medical school, busy doing clinicals or whatever it is that they call it. But I’m here, reading Communications, excelling at it and itching to finish school in the next five months. That’s life for you. In your head, you think you have it all figured out except God is up there laughing and shaking Her head (I like to think of God as a woman). I’m not saying you shouldn’t make plans, I’m just saying that you should give room for God to make changes in those plans.

The last few days have been retrospective for me. At the beginning of the year, I was like 2017 is definitely my year! I’d make money, meet people in high places, travel – you know, the usual shid. Somewhere down the line, I just gave up. And I had to start all over again. At first, I felt I had let myself down. I couldn’t do any of the things I wanted to do. And even those I started, I ended midway. I felt like a total failure. However I realized that I was looking at things the wrong way. Fine, I didn’t get to be Bill Gates by December 🙄or end up in Dubai like I’ve always wanted 😂 but I have grown in so many ways! And to me that is my greatest achievement ever. 2017 has been a year of GROWTH for me. It’s like God broke me down just so he could rebuild me into someone much stronger and of a much higher substance. I’ve known what it feels like to love and to lose that same love. I’ve understood that this life isn’t ours and it can all end in a matter of seconds! (Flashback to that car accident) I’ve realized that no matter what you do, there are some people who will always hate you for simply being yourself. I’ve learnt that nothing good comes easy, you need to get your ass up and work hard for it. Most importantly I’ve grown to love myself. If this isn’t growth goals then I don’t know what else is.

I may not have achieved physical greatness this year, but I’ve definitely achieved a lot in a much psychological and emotional sense. I took up an SRC position (don’t be surprised if you see me in politics one day😂), I debated for the first time ever (it went great by the way💯), I’m rebuilding my relationship with God (one step at a time), I’ve supported my own in every way possible (I’m still doing that), I’m improving on my writing and culinary skills (y’all better watch out for me cos 😂💪🏽), I started a business (even though I feel like I’m slacking with it 😫), I built my social media presence and a host of other things. Indeed I’ve become a much better person than I was a year ago and for that I am grateful for all the things I had to go through this year.

It may not seem like much but little drops of water do make an ocean. I know there are so many of you out there who feel like 2017 didn’t go the way you expected it to, but that’s no reason to give up. There are greater things ahead.

2017 ends in 21 days and I plan to make the best of out of it! You should too, you know💯 You can make a lot happen in so little time – trust God to make it work❤️💪🏽


“Dare to love yourself
As if you were a rainbow

With gold at both ends..”
So I took a short break, not because I was depressed or anything but simply because I needed some “me” time. Time to focus more on myself, time to get away from all the negative and toxic people in my life, time to be with the few people in my life that truly matter and most importantly, time to reinvent myself 😊

And trust me, these past few weeks have been the best I’ve had in a long time! You know the saying that goes ” some of the best moments in your life are those you can’t tell anyone about” ?? Yeah, that’s so me right now 🤣. 
I really appreciate those who took the time to check up on me all – I was receiving so many “Why have you gone MIA? Is everything okay?” texts – I didn’t quite realize how “quiet” I had become. 
Let me just jump right into this whole concept of SELF LOVE💕. It’s not as complex as it may seem and it’s certainly not as abstract as it may look. It’s simply ” loving yourself with the same energy and passion as you would when loving someone else.” All that energy and effort I used to check up on someone, to make that person happy, to always be there, to support and to love someone else’s son? You know what I did? I channelled all of that energy right back at myself and trust me, it is the most amazing feeling ever! 
Now is the time to do all the stuff you’ve been holding back on – go to the gym & get that six pac you’ve always wanted, eat and sleep all day if that’s what you want to, go see a movie when you feel like it, go on a fun night out and get drunk, go on a weekend getaway if you can, learn a new hobby, start a business, make new friends, throw a party, take on a new skin care routine, so far as it’s something that you want to do – just do it. You don’t owe anyone any explanations and you sure as hell have no business caring what others think or say about you. Just be you – I can’t stop stressing on this. 
Life is way too short to waste any amount of time wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but rather my opinion of myself. And this brings me to ask the questions “How do you see yourself? Who are you?” If you’re determined to love yourself then you must love yourself right. How you see yourself determines the value you place on yourself and just how far you’re willing to go to love yourself. It’s all in the mind. See, you can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t matter. Every second you spend doubting your worth, every moment you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted – a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever so why waste any of these moments? 
It’s high time you accept all the great things about yourself. Embrace your talents and strengths. Own it. As part of my self love routine, I stand in front of my mirror every morning and gas myself up. “I am beautiful, I am strong, I am smart, I am intelligent, I am creative, I am a great writer, I have excellent culinary skills, I’m the most caring person you’ll ever meet, I’m the embodiment of soul and passion, I’ve got the voice of an angel, I can excel at anything so far as I put my mind to it” and I don’t just say it, I actually believe it. I have given myself the power to say that I’m all these things because after all, we are what we choose to be. Who the hell are you to tell me I’m not pretty? You think you’re more intelligent than I am? – then prove it! Have you ever been moved to the point of tears when reading a piece? – then you obviously haven’t read any of mine. This has got nothing to do with arrogance, it’s self confidence. I know my worth and I know for a fact that anyone would kill just to have me. The love I have for myself prevents me from mingling with mediocrity and settling for less than I deserve. 
The person in life that you will always be with the most is yourself. Because even when you’re with others, you’re still with yourself too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself; laying in bed at night, you’re with yourself; walking down the street, you’re with you. So ask yourself, what kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? Or wake up in the morning with? Or see at the end of day before you fall asleep? That person is yourself and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend the rest of my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who’s not full of hate, who’s able to smile and be carefree. So that’s who I have to be.
At the end of the day, I’ve come to realize that the only person who can pull me down is myself and I’m not going to let myself pull me down…anymore. I deserve to be happy and so do you 😘

I am way behind schedule😫. I’m so sorry about that. The plan is to write at least one blog post every two weeks except this time around, I’ve missed my own deadline. I recently started my first internship, it’s taking up pretty much all of my time and.. Well, that’s a story for another day 👅

This post is about FRIENDSHIP. Anyone who knows me knows just how much friendship means to me. I really don’t joke with my friends at all. They mean a whole lot to me and I’ll do absolutely anything for those I consider my friends. 

We all have friends – though some have way too more than they actually need. I can’t blame you, I mean life is such that you end up going through each phase making new friends along the way. Every year, maybe – every month, perhaps every week; well, if you’re that friendly – but then again, you realize that it’s never really the same as having that ONE FRIEND. 

The question that we should be asking ourselves is – Do we have that one friend that we can always count on? Who will always be there for us regardless? That friend who knows literally everything about you and still loves you anyway? That friend who will never judge you in spite of all the stupid things you’ve done? The first person you want to call whenever anything comes up? That one friend that you are so sure of will not hesitate to risk their life for you? The one who makes your problems their own? Do you really have a NAA TEIKO in your life? 

This Ganyobi right here deserves more than just an essay😫 See, Dromo, if I had money erh I would spoil you anyhow!! I just knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you from the moment I set my eyes on you. 😂😂No homo, relax guys – but I mean it! In the most non-sexual, platonic way ever 😂. Why am I even bothering to explain myself?! 

I had been living in Osu for God knows how long and I had no one to hang out with. I’m talking as if my dad would have allowed it – the old man was so strict! Even if I wanted to buy credit, I had to send one of my brothers to do that for me🙄. I was the typical EFIE AKOKO. I was so naive and miserable 😫 until I met Teiko. So outgoing! So fun! So experienced! (Teiko knows everything😂😂) So popular! So cool! (Matter of fact, I always thought that she was way too cool to ever want to be my friend – I still do) So beautiful! So full of life! Sigh.. So perfect 😫 and I wanted so much to be like her. I had some pretty huge low self esteem issues back then and I desperately needed someone I could look up to. I’m not ashamed to say this but I literally threw myself on her. See, if there’s something or someone that you like, GO for it or him or her! Before it’s too late. Sometimes, you need to be the one to make the first move.

I did and I’ve never looked back since! l learnt so much and everyday with her, I keep learning more and more. I learnt how to wear make up, and fix my nails and what type of hair to buy and the kinds of clothes and shoes to get, the sort of people to avoid, managing my social media brand (honestly before I met Teiko I had no idea what Instagram and Twitter were 😂😂), exploring Accra, getting involved in various initiatives, being out there, being known, the constant “you’re worth it”, “you can do it” pep talks…the sex education 😂😂… I wouldn’t be where I am and the person that I am today if it weren’t for NAA TEIKO. 

My dad never liked any of my friends but with you, whenever you came around it was as if you had come to visit him instead. The convos and laughter😂😂 I never understood how you two managed to click! And then my dad fell sick and passed away and so did yours – it’s just weird how the same stuff keep happening to us. I’ll never forget the day my dad died. It’s as if you knew something terrible would happen that day. I was in bed feeling so reluctant to get up. My spirit was so down – almost like I knew something bad was about to happen. My mum was almost always at the hospital with my dad so I was the one who had to keep things moving at home. But that morning, I just couldn’t find it in me to.. to 😞 and then out of the blue you came and convinced me to get out of bed and take my bath and you helped me cook beans and plantain for the boys, then you made me up and picked an outfit for me, all so we could take pictures 😂😂😂 All this just to cheer me up. And it worked. And then my mum came home with my dad’s stuff and without him and I just knew that was it. 

You guys will never understand why I love her so much😫. You’ve always been there for me Naa. I don’t even know how I would have gone through most of the difficult moments in my life if you weren’t right there beside me through it all. Even when you have problems of your own, you’d still go out of your way to try and help me with mine – just to make sure I’m alright. Through all the heartbreaks and countless fuck boys, nothing has changed between us😂 One advice though, always remember BITCHES BEFORE BOYS. It’s a cold world out there. Never choose a guy over your friend. He’s not worth losing your friendship for. 

I haven’t been myself for the past two months. A heartbreak can do that to you – hit you so hard and so bad. I had reached that point where I felt that nothing was worth my time anymore. There was no enthusiasm to continue with NARKIES CRAVINGS or go out or write or continue with my YouTube channel (something I’ve wanted to do so much!). But Teiko never gave up on me even when I had given up on myself, everyday she’d try and talk me into going back to the vibrant and confident person that I used to be and picking up from where I left off. I wasn’t minding her at first but Teiko can be very persistent when she wants to be. Right now, I know I’m going straight ahead to achieve all my goals. If she believes in me, then I believe in me too. If she can still see the real me underneath all the mess then it means I can find the strength to be myself again. I’m never looking back again and I’m sure as hell not going to allow another human being to ever make me feel worthless again. Ever!

I love you so much GRACE LOIS NAA TEIKO NORTEY. Dromo, if I had to sacrifice my life just so you could live, I’d do it a hundred times over. It takes most people years to find something like what we have. You’re my soul mate and I thank God it didn’t take me forever to find you. 



I have very few regrets in my life but my biggest will be not making the time to appreciate and love my dad more. I spent so much time dwelling on the bad moments (well, there were so many of them😞) that I ignored the few good times. I wish I had more time to undo all that But he’s gone and that’s something I’ll have to live with for the rest of my life. Fix all broken relationships while you still can. Someday it might be too late. Trust me, I know what I’m saying. 


You honestly don’t expect things to always go the way you want them to, do you? 🙄. There will be times when you find yourself doing the same things you vowed never to do! Or being in situations that you just have no control over😫 Like being taken advantage of, being played, being a victim of rape or abuse of any kind, wasting your time on the wrong people (we’ve all been there), the list is endless.. And no matter how much you will hate yourself afterwards, just know that shit happens. It’s happened already, learn from it, move on and make sure it doesn’t happen again. 

Unfortunately for us, we live in a world that is so judgemental by nature. You shouldn’t let that stop you. People will always talk, so make sure you give them something good to talk about. I wear anklets, I’ve got a couple of piercings, I dress the way I want to, I say things as they are (if you like come and beat me) and trust me, I get crap for it but who cares? I don’t. I’m just being me. Don’t ever make the mistake of trying to fit in just so you won’t have a problem with anyone. You’re above all that. You’re GOLD Baibey, not copper. 

I used to feel insecure about myself for so long. I never thought I was good enough for anything or anyone for that matter. I could almost swear that I was that one ugly friend in the squad. (Surprising? 😂 I Know) And that was the mentality I had for so long until I got so tired of feeling that way. Flashback to that fateful day in 2010 when I decided that I had so much to offer – it was about time I rebranded my current self into my ideal self, be more open to a lot of things, find my true self and then accept it. I haven’t had any regrets so far. I’m happy for taking that big step! Finding myself has made me a much better person. 


Yes 😫 You WILL get your heart broken. It isn’t easy but it will get better. No amount of partying or sex or drinking will heal you. What you need most at this point is self acceptance and self love because at the end of the day, when that feeling of temporary happiness is gone, you’ll be left alone at 3:00 am crying and feeling sorry for yourself. You are the only one who can deal with you. You deserve better dear, you deserve to be happy. You are beautiful and intelligent and funny and smart and so much more. And if he can’t see that, then he’s the one who lost – big time! You did your best and the sad truth is, for some people your best will never ever be enough for them. So don’t kill yourself because at the end of the day, your happiness is what truly matters.

Don’t be afraid to do crazy stuff – things out of the ordinary – that you wouldn’t usually do. If you want to get more out of life, then you need to get out of your comfort zone. If you don’t take risks, you’ll have a wasted soul. Every day, I want to go the extra mile – I can’t possibly imagine myself living the way my parents did. There is so much to do and so much to see – I need to be able to experience all that. 

People come and go. Everyone that has been in your life has been there for a reason. Some to teach you valuable life lessons, some to love you, some to make you a better person and some, to experience life with you. That boy that claimed to be in love with you will move on to another girl. Those friends that you made in high school may or may not be by your side. As we all move forward in life, we all have different goals and ambitions. New friends and relationships are right around the corner. You just need to trust the magic of new beginnings. 💫
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do for my friends. I cherish friendships more than anything else. Whenever I have the chance to help a friend in any way that I possibly can, I go all out and do it. Some will be appreciative, others won’t but that shouldn’t stop you. Go out there and make meaningful bonds with people that will last a lifetime. Make as many friends as you possibly can and don’t burn bridges. 


What you need to know is that things will continue to go on with or without you. So every now and then, sit down and breathe. Take the day off whenever you can. Take a break from school or work or business or whatever it is that you do. Take a break from people and from social media and have some “me” time. 

Sigh, I wish I knew this back then! Do you have any idea at all how it feels like to hear that your end of semester results are out only to check and see a series of F’s in chains?? And believe me, I’m not talking about the once in a while one or two F’s but the kind where the one good grade in the whole batch is a D sitting in the midst of F’s. I remember thinking, “How on earth am I going to finish this course and not kill myself in the end?!” That was when I sat back and realized that I was simply at the wrong place, expecting right results. So I took a huge leap of faith, I changed courses, I’m actually doing something I really like and excelling so well at it. So well, I doubt if anyone would ever believe there was a time I ever had an F. Failing isn’t the problem, the problem is how you get back up afterwards.

I’m always eager to try out new stuff. I guess I’m just a curious soul. I’ve tried hair dye, I’ve cut my hair, I’ve pierced my ear more than once, I’ve tried all kinds of food I never I thought I’d eat in my life (pork, sushi, rabbit meat kebab, frog legs) and I’m still alive 😂, thank goodness 🙏🏽. The next on my to do list is getting a tattoo just like this one. The birds signify freedom to me and that is the one thing I always aim to get – the freedom to be myself. I can already hear the naysayers and “critics” going on and on about how bad tattoos are blah blah 🙄. I’ve developed a thick skin for that over the years. I don’t want to live the rest of my life thinking, “what if”. I couldn’t possibly live that way. There are so many things that life has to offer and I’m not going to deprive myself of them and the kind of freedom and excitement and rush that comes with doing these things. Don’t be boring, learn to live life! 
Nothing lasts forever. Everything in this life is fleeting and impermanent. The pain you’re going through will one day not be there. That state of not having enough will be a state of having more than enough, some day. Everything has its season and time. 

How many times do you look at yourself in the mirror and genuinely smile at what you see? You need to be able to come to terms with the fact that beyond your mess, God sees the beauty He created and still thinks it’s good! Self love sets the standard in how we allow others to treat us and ultimately, how we treat our own selves. Know your worth baibey, and you’ll never have to settle for anything less than you deserve. 

Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you. Do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. Let whoever think whatever. There’s more to life than pleasing people. You need to decide who you are for yourself and do everything that you possibly can to be happy. Never rely on others for your own happiness. People always disappoint. You are in charge of your own happiness. 

It’s as simple as that. Being around negative people and negative situations almost always brings out the negative sides of us – anger, jealousy, hatred, pessimism, backstabbing, lies, betrayal, confusion etc. I am someone who gets angry easily but ever since I started living by this principle, I have become a better person. Instead of staying, I simply excuse myself so I don’t end up reacting with the anger that has been provoked inside me. If you continue to associate with people who do not have vision but only think of today, you’ll end up being like them. Surround yourself with people who make you happy and inspire and motivate you to be your best self. 

Why worry when you can pray about it? You need to understand that God will never put you through a hurdle He knows you can’t cross. You simply need to trust Him. This is something I tell my mum all the time. She is always worrying about stuff, how she’ll pay school fees, how to pay the bills, what to eat, how there’s no money – how are we going to survive? (Frankly speaking I don’t blame her, she’s the only one taking care of my brothers and I ) I keep telling her that God will always provide for us and indeed He does! Haven’t you ever been in a situation where you were so sure that things will never work but someway somehow, everything turned out just fine? That’s the power of God working in us for our own good.

You obviously don’t go about posting the not so glowing aspects of your life on social media🙄 It’s only the best moments that make it out there. And that’s just the way it is with everyone. A couple posts pictures and videos of themselves giving each other lavish gifts and going to fancy dinners and basically having a good time and you start doubting if you’re really with the right person. You see all those Instagram boss chicks and then you start wishing you had a body shape like theirs or human hair like the ones they have on or the face beats or the cars or the frequent two-week Dubai-Lagos-SouthAfrica trips. Don’t compare b. We all struggle, we all make mistakes, we all feel ugly sometimes, we all use filters. 

We all have that one thing we are good at. It could be writing, cooking, making up people’s faces to perfection, fixing and styling hair, good marketing skills.. It could be anything at all. Maybe it’s about time we developed those skills and then made money out of it. It’s never too late to start your own business. Having a little extra money to spend and save never hurt anybody. (Besides, you’re really going to need that extra cash ) 

Don’t ever let pride get the best of you. When you do something wrong, learn to say “I’m sorry” and actually mean it. And don’t hold grudges for long. If I sit and look back at the number of beautiful friendships I would have lost had I held some grudges for long, I’d probably be friendless by now. We are all human, today I might offend you – tomorrow you may be the one at fault. So to everyone that I’ve disappointed or let down or offended at some point in my life, I am sorry. I am sorry for not being there when you needed me. I am sorry for not trying harder. I’m trying so hard to be a better person. 

It’s true to some extent that yes, blood is thicker than water. But even your own family can backstab, betray and turn their back on you. Sometimes your own family members may not even care that you exist. Believe me, I’d know. Those that you consider family are sometimes the ones that hurt you the most. So I’ve come to learn that the term family means so much more. Anyone who has your best interests at heart and will do anything to make you smile and make sure you succeed, those are the people you can proudly call family. 

It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. By all means keep the wonderful memories, but learn to move on. In the words of Tupac, “You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened…. Or you just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.”

Like they say, less friends – less bullshit. I couldn’t agree more! Your friends should motivate and inspire you. Your circle should be well rounded and supportive. Keep it tight. Make sure that everybody in your “boat” is rowing and not drilling holes when you’re not looking (fake friends alert❗️) Remember, quality over quantity always.

You told me “Follow your heart..” And guess what? – I actually did – only to have YOU break it into a tiny million pieces ⚡️

Fire, Baibey, Fire 🔥
“Naa, he’s just like fire to me😩😍”

That’s the only way I know how best to describe you

You had me feeling all kinds of things

Emotions I had no idea I could ever feel

You made the rest look like play

For a minute, I thought you were the real deal

Why would you waste so much time on me

Only to switch up out of the blue?

Why would you forcibly enter my world

And leave me hanging like a fool?

Why would you do everything right

Then suddenly take flight ?

Why would you promise not to hurt me

Yet, do the exact same opposite?

Leaving me so drained, with no more energy to fight..

Why would you leave me so BROKEN?

So many questions, I wish I had answers to

What was my crime?

All I ever did was love you 😞

And now here I am, Unable to sleep anymore

You’re all I think of, mi amor

You were supposed to be my happy place

Except, it is no more

I feel, I feel… 😩

A gut wrenching pain in my chest

I wish I could rip my heart out

It suddenly feels like a pest

Is this how it feels like? To be BROKEN?

And I’m dying to know

Is it killing you like it is with me?

Or am I alone

Like a dead fish stuck in this flow?

I’ve never felt anything like this before

For the first time in my life,

I bare my soul with words, so raw

Intense, and with a depth like never before

Oscar says the heart was meant to be broken

Well look what you did with mine..,

Bruised and beat up with words unspoken

I keep wondering if I’ll ever feel UN-BROKEN

I know my heart will never be the same

So I keep lying to myself that it was just a game

And even till this moment, I keep taking the blame

Next time I won’t love till it drives me insane!

Mama said, Fire will always burn – hard & fast

It’s like she knew right from the start

Did I really think, “Till death do us part?”

What we had was so beautiful 🌹

Something I could never walk past

And if I had to do it all again

I’ll do it, even if it’s all in vain

But right now my heart is so tired

Will I ever feel whole again?
