am here

watching you

standing so near

with your beating heart

racing and reaching far

chasing and hitting hard at

dead rock for its symbolism

and leaving me stranded as I watch

knowing not when rain will fall on this mud


As much as it hurts, pins, cuts and might kill

as much as I bleed, fear and feel lost

I’m not complaining though it hurts

you are not at fault in this

neither am I at fault

the blame is on death

who took your heart

and gave rock





can’t help

feeling it

and I can’t help

hurting for it, no!

So I’m stopping time now

leaving you with the dead rock

to find what you found that you’ve lost

so as to get fairness for my soul

and feel the rare moments that shakes your ground

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)


It’s all love today well deep as it is is as deep as it goes for one who loves there is always going to be lost . I’ve been there myself I know it’s pain, yet to never love at all is to never live. I feel blessed by the love I have and blessed by what I had. This is my take, I don’t want to take anything away from you both,many blessings and peace

This post reminds me of something my husband wrote me, I hope you don’t mind me sharing: My Dear (Darlingness), I am so SO sorry you feel like this, I feel helpless and fooled, but still I have to make strides, however inconvenient, I also have to move on. Nothing will ever stop my love for you nor erase the memories and the possibilities that we were not allowed. I too am in crisis; I am also sorry that I can’t be as much support as I used to because of this. Please, if you feel you need to move one, forget me even, how could I stop you. I want all that is best for you, and whatever is best is what has to be done. I love you still, but I understand, and we’re both adult enough to realize; and we both have responsibilities. I just hope we meet again in another dream. I am going to miss you terribly, and embrace whatever is ahead.
Your C.

Wow. Your husband really loved you then. Amazing how people so in love can’t stay together. This is a beautiful and sincere letter after separation. You sure are lucky to be loved that way because love is selflessness.

Yes, I think he really still loves me; it’s just that his life, his ‘Gods’ almost, is transient and vagabondary. He can’t stay in place very long. I am so sad because we had it all: attraction, understanding, we could share our love of culture, we could be stylish together and knew the rules, but had a special complicity too where we could escape. All I can think is that maybe it was too much, too soon. I know not exactly. It is perhaps human too, to think that a relationship correlates with being together. OOOOOh. I guess that is it.
I sure feel lucky though, to be important in his mind, he has a particularly special mind.
Thank you!

Thank you for sharing this. I’m fortunate to know one so loved. Sometimes it hurts so badly when you think you have it all but thoughts and attitudes separate you. You are one strong lady to have let go that way. Many blessings.
