Cards

You’re my diamond, can I give you my heart ?
I’m dedicated, like a fan to a club.
You’re my winning card, my ace of spades.
Make my house a home.
Love me ?
I’ll never hit you, i’d only hit that.
These hands are here to protect you.
These shoulders are yours to lean on.
We will argue, we will fight.
Never splitting.
We complement each other, two halves of one.
I dey misbehave, correct me.
We’re in this together, 2 peas in a pod.
Be mine, never leave me.
My woman, my life.
The reason I keep going.
Light when there’s only darkness.
Hope when my door disappears.
An oasis to my thirsty soul.
Let me take care of you,
Watch you grow old and more beautiful.
Be together.
Both of us, forever.

Revisiting My Past

If I could rewrite something from my past, they wouldn’t have died.
So young, so full of life, within 2 years, gone, in the blink of an eye, both of them. I don’t know where they are now, I really can’t vouch for anyone.
Once upon a time, I had 2 elder brothers and 2 uncles, now I have 1 each, death happened.
I won’t bore you with the details, I won’t give you gory tales of their deaths but they involved vehicles, both of them were killed by Mack trucks, my uncle and my brother, 11 years and 10 years respectively.
I can’t stand near a truck again, lol, such fear for one so young.
Death you have no heart, you have no sympathy but you don’t scare me, I know where i’m headed to, you’re just a means to a necessary end for me, when it’s time, i’ll welcome you but for now, i’ll stop rewriting my past,
I’ll start writing my future,
You reading this, will you ?
