Memorable thoughts

You were the cloud that brought my rain

You made my garden blossom

Roses of joy sprouted

Violets of enchanting peace throve.

I fought wars for you

I wrestled demons for you

I ate what you ate

I wore what you wore.

The fragrance of sin transformed you

The poison of another’s lips

The defilement of her embrace

The allure of her fame.

The more I loved you

The more you hated me

The more I made you my everything

The more I became nothing to you.

You knew my love knew no bounds

So your hatred knew no limits

The closer I got

The farther you went

Till I became your

un-remembered yesterday.

You took your love away

You can’t take being loving from me

I will give my love to another

A honourable prince shall cherish me.

My wounds will heal

With tales told by scars

Cinema of horror on my skin

Evil from one man engraved on another.

Though now my tears ebb and flows

And my heart disregards mending

I have picked up my fallen tiara

I sit as a queen again.

I am thankful for one thing

I now know the real you.

The one who drained life out of me

And left me to die.


This poem is a re-jig of memories on how it feels when a lover cheats and adds the insult of embarassing rejection to the wound. It’s a pick yourself up and move on with your life call. There better than him/her out there. Its written in a straight from the heart fashion trying to show how it feels at the moment of rejection without trying to be “decent”. It’s not written with anyones experience but if you have been there before, you know the feeling.

Please subscribe to this blog if you haven’t and also comment below on your experiences or what you have seen in life.

Thanks for your time.

The best anyone can do after rejection or heartbreak is to pick up yourself, move on, knowing that there is someone else out there who values you.. At times they are right before you and you don’t even know. No man or woman is worth the crying or dying for.

    Correct talk ma.

Hmm did you just open up my wounds with this truthful words or was it that a part of me still yearns for the lady I’ve loved for 3 years which ended in tribal bruhaha (I don’t even know what am saying now). Lovely poem but wait o e hard to forget forget o but yes learn how to move on. Thank you sir for this lovely poem.

    You have survived this far Sir. Forgetting is not easy but life can be better as you move on and find true love, then forgetting becomes a possibility.

    Ovyay · August 7, 2018 at 7:00 am

    Yes o. No one is worth suffering for especially an unappreciative man.

Kay Akinseye · August 7, 2018 at 6:51 am

Move on and you’ll realise there are much better things ahead.

    Hmm, no one can understand how it feels like except those who have been there. You have been there so I know you understand what you are talking about. It’s a hard reality but with time and true love one can get over anything. Hold your head high @joseph the wound won’t last forever. Thanks for commenting. I truly value your words .

This is really intense! It’s sad how some relationships turn out when there’s no honesty and transparency…
The pictures just intensifies the text. Very beautiful!
