‘Relationships are complex but once you establish a connection with someone or something, you establish a relationship.’ – Gladys Ahiman, 2017

Addicted

As I laid on my bed, twitching and itching from the weekend of no time with you, it suddenly dawned on me that I miss you. My thoughts all focused on your presence and your aura. Wishing for your contact, the truth is I’m addicted. A day without you seems like you’ve been away forever….

The apology of a prodigal writer

Neglected and alone, I came to book an audience with the blank pages I had recently grown distant with. I was convinced we had broken up so I made excuses so we wouldn’t have to ever meet again but, here we are. On this cold frigid night, restless in thought, confused in the state I’m…

Louder than words

I sat on my bed contemplating where did I go wrong? I had spent the last few hours wallowing in my flaw and deficiencies that my ‘feelings’ begun to subside. I’d been a victim of the opinions of others deeming me unworthy because I fell short of their expectations. The worst part of it wasn’t that I…

Set yourself free

In the face of regret You reflect back on what should or should not have been said. But it’s too late. Drastic measures fight for your attention. But none carry the satisfaction you crave. The feeling of both emancipation and disappointment become a familiar scent to the senses. It takes some time before it resonates…

Dear Diary 23/October/1993

Well, I guess this is story time for you so let’s get started.   My first encounter with him activated the tears which were shut away to break free. The red wine he gave me drowned all my pain into existence. My senses were awakened, I felt …….. vulnerable. A moment I was looking to…

Same feathers

Once bitten, twice shy But the desperation to keep company has left bruises all over my body. A confidant, my possession. I became addicted to you because you were mine. And time helped us get closer So no decision of mine was made without you. You were my solution to being lonely and independent. I…

Disillusion

Worship is to ‘place above all else’.   The misconception to man’s understanding has got us bowing to our ignorance. We have limited a God who deserves more than our worship to a side hustle. And we’ve placed the works of our hands in His place. A race to meet our own desires has got…

2 become 1 – Spirituality vs. Religion .

‘the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.‘ – Spirituality definition ( Google) We are the era of political correctness. This has penetrated through the governmental organisation, the family (home) and now the church. It’s created an uproar in the Christian faith. People coining new…

I Do

‘ will you have this man to be your husband; to live together with him in the covenant of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honour and keep him, in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all others, be faithful unto him as long as you both shall live? ‘   Vows are solemn…

Speed bumps

I was birthed in the depths of Christianity. Frequent bible studies, praise and worship, attending church services every Sunday became the chromatic design of my spiritual DNA. I had all this knowledge of God but my sudden realisation of Him occurred in 2009 and nothing pleased me more than to get closer to Him. So…

Know God, Know Love

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’  All the Law and the Prophets…
