'Enchanted (#SheSaid - Chapter 1)' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
Write a story, she said.
You have a way with words;
Write about us.
The day we met.
Under the sunset.
On the water's shores.
Overlooking the ocean.
The day I saw you over there.
We caught each other looking.
Our eyes met.
I shied away.
Giggling, as I turned my head.
I looked again,
And you were almost there.
Walking up to me,
With a smile on your face.
Before any words were said,
I was already, enchanted.
'Perfect Isn't Enough' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
I'm so sorry
I never meant to hurt your feelings.
I tried and tried.
I tried to tell you so many times.
But always waiting for me was a smile.
Breakfast in bed, at the right times.
Always there, to kiss me good night.
Never faulting, ever the gentleman.
Your company, always a delight.
The host with the treats,
The guest with the gift.
You were always happy,
The nice guy.
I didn't want to take that away.
I didn't want to make you cry.
How do I tell you I don't love you anymore?
You remember the dates,
You always put me first.
You do everything right.
So, How do I tell you that 'perfect' isn't making me ha...
Under The Tree by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
You never had time for me
But you went to see him.
I called for weeks.
Hoping to see you,
Even if it was for a minute
But you said you were busy.
Had things to do.
Things that could not wait.
Things that were more important,
Imagine my disbelief.
When I saw you under that tree.
Holding his hand; smiling
Laughing, bearing all your teeth.
Touching his face, affectionately.
Leaning in, going for a kiss.
My God, I couldn't believe it.
I thought we had something.
I thought you said it was just me.
I thought you said I was your everything.
I'm not even mad or angry
I'm only sad,
You never looked at me.
The way you ...
'End of Time...' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
Paintbrush in hand.
I don't even know where to start.
How will one paint a beauty so fine?
How many colours will I mix,
Just to get your shade right.
How many times will I try,
Just to make sure I get that smile.
For yours, is a beauty that can't be painted
A beauty that can't be described.
A beauty that won't be seen again.
Till the end of time. . .
'I Love The Way. . .' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
I love the way you say my name.
Whispering into my ears.
Calling out gently, softly.
I love the way you touch my skin.
My breath vanishing.
I love the way you kiss my lips.
I love the way you take me there
To the shores of pleasure,
And to the gates of excitement.
"Too Late..." by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
What more can I do to prove my worth?
How much more do I have to endure?
What can I do to finally earn your trust?
What else can I do to show you, you're 'the one'?
What did I do to be treated this way?
I keep trying, but all you're doing is pushing me away.
You keep making excuses, giving delays.
What else can I do to show you I'm here to stay?
Is it because I care? Too much?
Or because I'm always the first to say I'm wrong?
Is it 'cause I still give you chance after chance?
Or are you tired? You want me to give up?
Did I do something wrong?
Or you simply don't want me anymore?
All you have to do is say the word.
There's no ...
Ghosts by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
I believe in ghosts.
The haunting memories of nightmares past.
The spooky stories buried inside.
The life I thought I left behind.
The demons I thought I left in the past.
The scary torment of which I thought I was free.
The sins I thought were forgiven.
The bodies, deep; that I hoped were forgotten.
The creatures I thought were dead to me.
I believe in ghosts.
I see them taking form.
Circling, over a prey they thought was lost.
Rejoicing, that their moment has come.
For the hunt, has just begun.
I believe in ghosts.
I’m all alone in the dark.
A dark and creepy night.
Armed with nothing but the moon’s light.
I believe in ghosts.
'Irresistible' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
If I was shy,
I would come out of my shell.
Just to talk to you.
If I was evil,
I would slay the devil.
Just to catch a glimpse of you.
If I had a genie,
I would use all my wishes
To have you in this life,
And any life after that.
If I had all the riches,
I would trade them in a heartbeat.
Just to be with you.
For you are; simply, irresistible.
'The Right Person.' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
The right person is worth the wait.
Worth the near misses, the 'almosts', the delays.
Worth the struggles, worth the pain.
Worth all the tears on your face.
The right person is worth all the rejects.
All the mockery, insults and jests.
The right person is worth it, whatever it takes.
Worth it, no matter how short the stay
The right person is the one.
The one you've always dreamt of,
For so long.
The one to calm all the storms
The one to overlook all your faults.
The one to bring your sadness,
To an end.
Give you joy, give you happiness.
Give you peace, for all the days you have left.
Staying with you, till the very end.
'Not All The Time' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
I love you
That's a given
Why do I have to say it too?
It's how I feel.
It's not a greeting.
Why do I have to keep saying the damn thing?
I say it today?
I say it tomorrow?
Tell me what matters more.
Showing you I care.
Or just telling you 3 words.
Trying to make you smile
Or just saying what you want to hear.
If saying it will make you happy.
Then, yes I do.
I love you.
More than you can ever imagine.
I will repeat it time after time.
I will shout from the rooftops,
Sing it you all night.
But if I forget to say it,
Do not be angry.
I'm only scared,
That the words may lose their shine.
I am okay.
The world is heavy,
but I don't feel the weight.
The body is weak,
but I don't feel the pain.
The tears are dropping.
My worries are many.
The sky is falling.
But I will not be fazed.
I am okay.
The lies are plenty.
My fate is shaking.
My heart is hurting.
My soul is wavering.
I am not okay.
But yet I keep fighting.
I am not okay.
But I know that one day,
I will be okay.
'I Am Okay' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
'Tell Me You Love Me' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
Why can't you tell me you love me?
Why is it so hard to just say it?
You say you feel it.
You don't have to say it.
But I want to hear it.
You say you don't want to be forward.
Please, take the jump.
Into my arms, you will fall.
You don't want to say it all the time.
You don't want it to lose its shine.
I want you to give me some peace of mind.
If you don't want to say it first.
Fine, let me take that step.
Let that burden be lifted.
I love you like fish love the sea.
Without you, I can't even breathe.
I will stare down the sun, I will go to the moon.
Just to hear you say, you love me too.
'The Question' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
I'm down on one knee.
In the background, good music.
Floor, littered with roses.
Perfect lighting, candles lit.
The love of my life.
Standing, in front of me.
A picture of beauty, stunning.
Beaming with joy, smiling.
I promise to make you happy.
To give you peace, for eternity.
To put you first, above anything.
So, I'm asking.
Will you make my dreams a reality?
Make me happy,
More than I could ever imagine.
Would you be my partner?
My lover, my significant other.
Would you be the one I wake up beside?
For the rest of my life.
Will you marry me?
"I wish you were by my side.
So I can see you smile.
I wish you were in front of me.
So I can give you one last kiss.
I wish you never left.
I wish you were still here.
Please come back.
I'm losing my mind.
I would do anything.
To hold you in my arms.
Just one more tíme... "
'One Last Kiss.' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
'This Love Thing. . .' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
What is this love thing?
Why is it so hard to reach?
I keep chasing,
It keeps on eluding me.
I keep trying.
But now I see,
That there is no limit.
To the heart's pieces.
At this point,
I'm not even choosy.
I just want someone,
Who can make me happy.
The Cool Night
The night is cool.
The skies are open.
The weather is perfect.
I'm alone, under the blanket.
I have every thing else.
The only thing missing, is you.
'Just for Once...'
"If only for a second,
I want you to feel, the way I feel.
To dive into the depths of my thoughts.
And see how much of you I adore.
Just for once,
I want you to see.
That my love for you is real.
Just this one time,
I want you to smile.
Knowing, that I am the reason why..."
Let Me In. . .
"I feel you pulling away.
The distance widens every day.
Building; growing at a scary pace.
Baby, just tell me what it would take;
To see you smiling back at me again.
Was it something I did?
I don't even care what it is.
Please, I'm sorry.
I can't stand us being like this.
Let me just try, I'll do anything.
I promise I won't hurt you.
Give me a chance, I don't want to lose you.
This silence is killing me.
I'm begging. Please,
Let me in!!!
I'm losing my mind.
I don't know what else to say.
Just know that I love you.
And I am not ready to give up on you. . ."
'Gone, In A Few Seconds'
My heart stops.
You come close,
My breath hits a pause.
You taunt, You tease.
The space between us shortens.
Sweet, The taste of your lips.
You nibble, You pinch.
The tension is building up.
The pace quickens,
Frantic, as our clothes come off.
You take the reigns,
Slithering your way on top.
You part the way,
Guiding me in,
My body quivering.
With every thrust,
You speed up,
Your body gliding along.
Moaning, with every motion.
Every breath; fast, short.
The wind seems to stop.
As if taking a moment to watch.
A few yards left to run;
Our bodies r...
'Waiting for You. . .'
I'm waiting for you,
On that bridge we met.
I hope we meet again,
No matter how brief the moment.
I will be here,
No matter what the heavens send.
Just to see your smile again,
In the shadow of the sunset. . .
'Gone so soon. . .'
The days we spent together, were much too few.
We had so many moments, but they only feel like a handful
Even though you're gone, I still long for you.
I would give anything, just to spend more time with you.
'My Way. . .'
I know you care.
I know you're trying to help.
Sometimes, I may need a friend.
And at times, I just wanna be by myself.
That doesn't mean I'm okay.
Nor am I trying to be an ingrate.
I'm just trying to find my own way.
Through all this hurt and pain.
'A Beauty. . .'
"The night is still, quiet.
Chirps, punctuating the silence.
In the dark, I see your silhouette.
A beauty, a Goddess; Heaven sent. . ."
'Freedom. . .' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
You never know how precious, until it is taken away.
You always wish you had it, for all the days;
Someone else was deciding your fate.
You’re not saying you’re great,
But at least you’ll be the one responsible for your current state.
The one setting your life at the right pace.
Making sure you're always in the right 'headspace'.
Making sure that every step, is the one you want to take.
Making sure that in the end, you can look back with a smile on your face.
Knowing, that this was your life.
That it was yours, and not the plaything of others.
That you bared your cross, and because of it, you were stronger.
That you made your own choices, and in...
*I Miss You. . .* by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
Without you around,
All my heart does is pound.
Head spinning round and round.
No joy left in the town.
I miss you, by my side.
I miss you not being there when I wake up;
to see your smile.
Miss you not being there when I mess up;
to feel your spite.
Miss you not being here for us to spend our time.
I miss you and the touch of your skin
Miss the sparks you send all over my body whenever we kiss
Miss the way you make me feel so much bliss.
Miss the way you gladden my heart with so much ease.
I know our time apart may just be little.
But the love I have for you makes it so painful.
The only thing making me not crumble;
Is the thought that someday soo...
Things may not be going as you hoped.
You may be walking down a lonely road.
No matter what the future holds.
I promise, You will never walk alone.
'Alone' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó
'In The End. . .'
They're laughing at us,
they think we're weird.
We pay them no mind,
cause all they do is stare.
When we are together,
every other thing disappears.
Cause all that matters,
is that I'm with you in the end.
*'Hey. . .' * by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó.
You sound even lovelier today.
Open your eyes to see the new day.
I hope you got a good night's sleep.
Hope there were no bad dreams?
Err; So, What’s the plan for today?
Some coffee to start the day?
No worries, I'm sure you'll be okay.
I hope you have a great day.
I was just calling to say 'Hey'.
How was your day today?
How was work? Hope it was great?
Hope you’re not too stressed out from the day?
Hope there was no traffic, no delays?
I hope you’ve had something to eat?
Try to rest. Get some sleep.
Have a good night. Have sweet dreams.
I’ll ring in the morning;
To say ‘Hey’.
