Broken Friendship

We said it was forever - we said we'd never part,
I knew it was a line, but I still gave both of you my heart.

Said you would stay, promised you could,
You chose to walk away, I knew you would.

You're not there anymore, my dearest friends,
I hate to say this, but it is our end.

By day you're one person, by night another,
Neither of them have anything to do with each other.

I sit here and cry for you - not for me,
What you've become, I wish you could see.

In your life you make friends that you're sure are true,
Nothing else matters, except what's between them and you.

You don't know if anyone has ever before felt this way,
For them you took breaths, you wanted to be alive every day.

It hurts to lose a friend, it gives you the saddest frown,
And when a second one bails, it's like getting kicked while
you're down.

And it hurts to be accused of something you didn't do,
You guys should know better than anyone, that I would never even think to.

You planted a knife in my back,
You were my life, but now, my memories of you are completely black.

I am afraid to love another, but I know I shouldn't be,
Because the people in my life are perfect for me.

There is this game I play,
Where I close my eyes and fade away.

I can't believe it's true,
but in this place, I can't even remember that I loved you.

You can't fix something that's already done

Anne Katrine 


I was deceived by you when you told me you loved me.
I was deceived by me when I believed that lie. 
My heart ached because of the deception you gave me, girl you really played me. I believed you when you said, "Girl you Make me Better" and what I believed most is when you said you'll have love for me forever.  But it’s cool; I get it, your name is Deception. The game you played gave me a lifelong lesson, "Don’t trust 'em, Don’t stress 'em" I laughed, I loved, and I’m still living. Your Deception hurt but you’re forgiven. I'm forgiving you because it gives me strength; again I’m forgiving you because it gives me strength. My life is good your Deception was just a trip, a mini vacation. It's hard to believe your one of God's creations. Deception is your name and also your game..

But I really believed you loved me but Deception is what you loved most, the pain that you inflicted upon me that hurt the most.

Sitting close to her in church, he looked focused on what the preacher was saying. Suddenly, Bukky’s phone beeped… it was a text message. She stretched for her phone beside her to see what it was this time. The number one suspect was MTN and their annoying ‘love messages’. Raising the phone, she must have pressed OK when the phone slipped off her hands onto Jade’s body. Immediately, as a nice guy he always wants to seem, Jade got hold of the big-screened phone and had a sharp sweeping glance at the message on the phone, he couldn’t believe it. It was GTB’s alert and the amount was N2, 350,503.00. WHAAAT!!!
Considering how fast Jade gave her back the phone, Bukky never suspected he saw it. Even if he saw it, she wouldn’t mind. Believe me. #smh

At the end of the service, Jade ‘marked’ Bukky so closely and managed to start a conversation. It was a swift one, he got her number and everything started happening fast. You don’t meet this opportunity everyday. A babe with 2million in her account? Chineke Lekwe!!!!
3 weeks after, Jade shocked Bukky with a marriage proposal.
Bukky was a church sister. She didn’t believe in dating. She believes that the man that marries her should come straight up with a proposal. Jade had fit into that. “Oh Jade must be a Godly man” she reasoned…
He didn’t even ask for her to come visit his house…unlike other guys, he didn’t ask for s*x.
Now, he proposed. What a lucky girl Bukky believed she was.

Jade and his people had come for the introduction. Now they have the list. It’s not that expensive. He hustled to raise some cash and piam!! They had done the marital rites. What a sharp guy!!
He did his best to avoid letting Bukky know that her money was the main attraction why everything was happening, so he never asked her about it.
On that same night, while they were in the room enjoying themselves, Bukky’s phone beeped again.
Another text message.

She pressed some buttons and lo, it was the same alert again. This time around, the amount has risen to 3million naira. She hissed…mtcheeeeew
Jade jumped up from the bed wondering why his new found maga wife would hiss like that, as he glanced through the phone once again and he didn’t know when he shouted “Wooooooowwww”

But She was like….”daddy, please I’m tired of this text message that is always putting me in trouble. My aunty that is in Canada opened an account using my phone number as the contact number a day before she travelled. She did it on emergency. But now, I want to inform the bank to remove my phone number from that account before armed robbers would see this alert on my phone and attack me”
On hearing this, Jade froze in shock with his mouth and eyes wide open, as he couldn’t believe what he just heard.

He can’t seem to breathe well again...”Eeeeeeehhhhhhhh” was the loud scream that he could utter.
“Babe…ehmmm is anything the matter asked Bukky who was now surprised…


We are more often frightened than hurt and we suffer more from imagination than from reality.
