#WriteRight. Aramide: I Do... I Did.




Saying I do
As we wed
We exchanged wedding bands 
Which symbolize continuous fidelity
For better for worse 
After She showed me Her love 
The worse is here
And better never was near
With Her infidelity rocking every year
She allowed different men into her arms
Still, I continued my yearnings
Waiting for my worse to improve 
She brought down the roof
With insults that came as greetings
From the love of my life
My wedded wife

With the same mouth She professed love
With the same mouth She cursed
Her vows
The words that made me joyous
Her cusses
The words that made me curious
In sickness and in health
Till death do us part 
Then death came with its cart
She was killing me slowly
Now departing
I'll kill me completely
Finishing what She started
With both hands
That exchanged wedding bands

****************



Beautifully written Aramide. 

Emotional and verbal abuse sometimes cuts deeper than physical abuse. Scars left on the body always has a remedy, the pain dulls and then fades away, sometimes leaving no mark at all. Not so easy for a scarred mind...

  9. This is lovely! An often ignored angle on abuse: It could be him and the scars may be invisible. It doesn't make it any less deplorable or the pain less significant. Abuse is abuse and should stop.

  10. Wow! Really beautiful.

    Meanwhile, I do not understand when people say emotional and verbal abuses are worse than physical abuse. I have yet to see someone abused physically without also being verbally abused. Verbal or emotional abuse may occur exclusive of physical abuse but I doubt physical abuse occurs without some sort of verbal abuse.

  11. Really emotional.
    I wish all young people today will understand that marriage is not about pre-wedding photos and all but about the solemn vows taken before God and Men and all other things Marriage as an Institution holds in stock for those who dare......

  21. Hey sisto! I like this...
    These men really go suicidal because they are afraid to tell the world. Afterall, no one might believe them. Let no one talk you(in general) down. Dont loose your self confidence no matter what! Speak up!

  22. Sisto! I love this.
    Men going through verbal and emotional abuse are ashamed to speak up...costing them their confidence. If only...

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!
