That It. - By Nne Somebody (Guest Blogger).

There was always something about you
That thing, that thing
Was it your voice or the purity of your mind?
Scratch that - Your mind was/is far from pure. LOL!
That thing, it’s driving me insane not being able to say
What was it?
It couldn’t be your eyes because I was never privileged to look into them
I hear from those who did that they were at times, deep pools devoid of light
At other times, blazing with the intensity of the sun
I’ve been told that your eyes are a rich dark brown
I hear them say they catch the light and even turn grey
It’s not your kinky, African hair
Full and springy, so I hear
No, it’s not your skin, quick to warm at the slightest touch
Not your touch, not your touch.
Fit to light me up like a torch.
I never felt you, but it would have been such a rush.
Was it the quickness of your wit?
The way you had with a turn of phrase
The passion I heard when you spoke in those days
I loved that you loved to dream out loud
You weren’t afraid to put it all out there
Your words came to me in my sleep
Made me ponder, wonder, contemplate what manner of man was this
I loved the generosity of your spirit
Your quickness to praise
Was that it? The thing, that thing…
Your words spoke of a man who would give and give…and keep on giving
Makes me blush to recall what I imagined
When I heard India sing her complicated melody
I thought surely, she reached into my mind and stole my song
In my mind, you were nothing less than perfection
The sum of everything I thought a man would be
The perfect blend of sexy, smart, cocky, naughty, complicated yet vulnerable
In my head, you could do no wrong, were always on point
That thing, this thing
Can’t place my finger on it
Can’t find the words for it
That it, that it
You had it and because of it, you had me.

Nne somebody used to blog some years back. I'm grateful she chose to share this with us, I pray she finds the passion again.

  3. nice Poem.At last i have finally being able to comment on Thelma's Blog...Phew

  4. Very nice...I likey! I could picture the expression on her face as she chanted 'that thing, that thing'. Creases lining her forehead as she searched for words to describe that thing that made him stand out. That's the truth really about the people we love, we can't pinpoint exactly. Indescribable. It's a culmination of a lot of good things we can't find expression for...

  5. Nice... Amen to your prayer for her.

  6. Thank you, everyone. You've been so kind.

    Thelma, you'll be the first to know when inspiration strikes

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

One More Post...


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
