Life Imitates Art

This morning I was AS happy as Julie Andrews on Prozac and that’s like super happy.….singing in my towel

“Let's Get Gone, Walk It Out
Now Walk It out, think about it, SnapNow Rock Rock Rock RockYou Can Do It All By Yourself
I'mma Buy You A DrankThen I'mma Take You Home With MeI Got Money In The BankShawty What you Think 'Bout That?Find Me In The Grey Cadillac”


I love the song by the way…but that wasn’t the case yesterday morning oh…who dash me happiness…I was crying my eyes out.

Okay so I have been keeping this on the low-low but am seeing someone lets call him my “Akwa ibom stud”….anyways we had a fight on Monday night over some silly thing I did that he didn’t like and he had told me before he didn’t but insecure lil me still did it again and it got him angry and we ended up not talking that night.

The next day I was still cranky and all, didn’t get any sleep and I was still expecting him to call and apologize for telling me to sound more intelligent. I didn’t want to break first so I decided to watch t.v.

All the three music channels decided that was the time to play love songs. Mtv Europe had top 10 love songs @ 10…God go punish una, channel o was doing lurv jams…bastards! And Mtv base was doing “base soul” and u know most soul songs are about love…but I just couldn’t change the channel…they played all the songs we liked..our song “because of u” by neyo…lost without u by robin thicke…and the song I once requested for him “promise by ciara” they even played “ I wanna have ur babies by Natasha bedingfield…we both love snow patrol and they played their songs..and I told him when am depressed I listen to maroon 5 and they had a maroon five wishlist….as much as I wanted to not think about him everything just kept reminding me of him oh!

Anyways I later went online and he was online…I said hi and then we started yarning…if you see how he blascattered my head ehn, I felt like a scolded child…apparently I really annoyed him cause I had never seen him angry like that cause we are used to always laughing and acting the fool that’s why I like him…I was so so scared…I started crying in the café oh…people were looking at me probably thinking “shey person die abi na belle” me I didn’t send them..he said I like pushing people away and ill end up all alone and I told him maybe I was doing it subconsciously…and I was sorry but its just that a lot of people have left me….and then he replied “Well the good news is am leaving u too”……chineke mei….i wanted to die….usually id be like then be out…but I wasn’t too proud to beg….i watched dream girls that morning and I remembered that song Jennifer Hudson sang “And I told u I am not leaving…ur gonna love me” I swear I wanted to call him and sing the song..cause if anybody leaves u after u sing that song…God will punish them….but I begged and he later said how could he leave..he wouldn’t want me listening to maroon 5 all day and be depressed…I dnt know if it was a typo or he was kidding around but I just remembered that story I wrote about shola and jide and him breaking up with her only to say it was a joke…and I laughed inside….this is just so weird its happening to me.

Anyways I was still sad sha..really sad cause even though it wasn’t over I didn’t like they way we left it..anyways all I wanted to do was go home lie on my bed and cry…when I got out of the café I saw our former gateman isiaka..a.k.a iskoli….i wasn’t even in the mood to talk to anyone but he was like “Ah lade is can see u at bustop, ama is call u is can no answer me(ah laide I saw u at the bustop I called u and u didn’t answer me) sometimes I wonder how am able to understand him.

Normally id say “ ah iskoli how far?” but I just looked at him thinking “ is can not be in the mood right now, so if is no leave my front, ama is give you drop kick, is can find urself in gutter..so is can find square root sharply” (am not in the mood right now so better leave my front before I give u drop kick and u find urself in the gutter, find ur square root sharply) but I just waved and left…and walked home with my tear stained face…I swear I was crying on the road…there r just sometimes u don’t send.

I got home I snapped at mr oyekusibe and my brothers plus I had cramps again so I was maaaaad!!! watched t.v so I could get him off my mind…secretly wishing he’d call. But he didn’t and I just wanted to die and then I wrote a poem about it all


My heart has been exposed
The great wall of fear built around it
That emanated from heartache and pain
Have u finally pulled down
Could it be you’ve done what no one ever has?
Could it be you’ve dared to go where no one ever went?
My defenses have u broken down
Leaving me with nowhere to run or hide
All of a sudden I feel like an open book
And you know all the wordings by heart
I feel naked and found out
My fragile heart is out there
In ur tenders hands have I placed them
And only time will tell the outcome of my actions
Whether I was wise to let u in
Or whether I’d be left to pick up the pieces of what my heart used to be.




Anyways I called him around midnight it was awkward at first cause…I still felt like a scolded child….but we talked and three hours later we were laughing like crazy..even my brother came to tell me to tell him that if he’s not going to marry me he should let me sleep….so yeah I was all smiles from then…..and bubbly and happy and jumping around…I woke up happy too…and when I was about to have my bath I just found myself dancing singing

“We In The Bed LikeOoh Ooh Oh, Ooh OohWe In The Bed LikeOoh Ooh Ooh, Ooh Ooh…

The t-pain song and I know I wasn’t this happy the day before…but can u see me smiling!!!!

Simply Gorgeous said...

What rubbish! What nonsense o. take your time ex- you have admitted you have started toasting this boy even before you and Yosh started fighting.... As for me and Yosh you are insane... I see it now.

He does not owe you any useless apology. Yosh ... I have said it...

Ugo Daniels said...

Ok, am in too. From wat i can understand. Ex and Yosh were hav a kinda 'lovers tiff' and Yosh was keeping da usual distance and malice, waiting for it to pass

BUT...

Ex couldnt possibly wait cos she apparently thought Yosh had left her for another gal, Savvi? BUT Yosh had said here it wasnt so.

Hmmm...this one tough. I dont even know wat to say...lol! From all indications, Yosh still wants Ex back. He's not ready for a split yet BUT Ex has moved on with another man..Yaparipa

Ex na so da thing dey hungry yu sef!...lol!
