I Miss Being Single And Lonely

Dear husband, This letter is copied to all the boys masquerading as men; men who mistakenly think they are God’s gift to women; to husbands who don rings yet do not understand what being a husband entails; and every married man who is a disappointment to his wife. Remember when I was single? You noticed me in a crowd of […]

Let It Hurt

You are a human being. What this means? You are made of flesh, bone and blood. All these are secured underneath a layer of skin. The blood ensures that oxygen is transported to your heart (you remember biology, don’t you?) Your heart therefore keeps beating. You are able to function. You breathe. You are alive. Imagine if you were to […]

With This Ring

Sunday afternoons are perfect for telling romantic stories. As you sit in your bedroom, able to witness from the window the sun hitting the earth so fiercely that it could light a fire. With the wind blowing in through the open windows sending relief to your sweaty body. With the sound of the swishing tree leaves that obey the wind […]

The F word

Pretty soon, she will look to us and seek some advice on how to forge ahead, then we will be forced to step up. This young girl who is constantly thinking about her dream wedding. She pictures herself in that white flowing dress, veil intact, walking towards this breathtaking hunk of a guy (the ultimate prince charming in her young […]

So The Fat Lady Has Sung…

She has sung beautifully, skillfully. Has hit her high notes as perfectly as Mado Robin. Her singing has left you wondering how it is she is able to hold her breath for so long. She has given it her heart and soul. The fat lady has sung so clearly and so well. She has not forgotten to throw in her […]

I Am Not Your Savior – You Are!

I saw you. Brilliant. Beautiful . Breathtaking. The day was yours. Yours to enjoy, get pampered, get heard – everyone listens to the bride. Your bouquet was secured in your hands and a graceful gait affixed to your steps. Your smile; happy, exciting, uncontainable. You did not just look happy. No, no, hell no! You were happy – your eyes, […]

It’s Not Over Until The Soon-To-Be Dumped Lady Eats

Think dinner. Beautiful setting. Magnificent restaurant. Delicious food. Excellent ambience. Some wining and dining is underway. The establishment encourages this and plays some good music which adds to the aforementioned ambience. All you hear are murmurs, light laughter, forks and knives hitting china plates. The lighting doesn’t disappoint either. The tables are strewn with couples. Everyone is having a good […]

Something About His Touch

A long, long time ago, I can still remember (did you just think of the song “American Pie”? Well, I did – beautiful song) going out on a date with this guy who was in campus. (That song; God, I am old school!) He suggested a not-too-shabby coffee house in town, one that was of course friendly to his allowance-financed […]

How do you want to be loved?

One woman will feel special if her husband showers her with gifts; a brand new car, expensive jewellery – the whole glitzy shebang. Another woman will feel special if her boyfriend sits with her to talk about nothing and everything for hours on end. Yet another will feel loved if the man takes his responsibilities as a father and a […]

If you love her…

It’s the month of love. Valentine’s day is here, that means you’ll need to show her that you love her. And do you? If you love her, be honest with her. Be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. If your ass is broke, then your ass is broke! You are not sonko, so let Sonko be sonko and […]
