ENTRAPMENT

This light headedness

is difficult to explain
it begins with a gradual throb
then a steady beat
of an unstable mind
searching for the right
amount of words to
describe the state of mind
of an ever unsettled soul.
This dizziness is
felt each time the
need to describe the
real state of mind
arises and then goes away
just like a harmattan wind
on a rainy September night
making such eerie sounds
the mind becomes unstable.
This uncleaniness the
heart feels every
morning when awake,
and with a throbbing headache
all the worries of the world
arrive and melt in
as fine butter
constantly asking,
"why does your mind
dwell on such drunkenness?"
This feeling at 2:55am
when almost every being
is trapped in a vision of
dreams
as you struggle with
what lays beside you a
disturbing hourly challenge
and you still ask yourself
I'm I to or not to?
Whereas, all the while
you knew the answers to
your numerous questions.

Usually, 80 percent of the time, if you find yourself pondering over the above-italicized questions, the item in question will usually not be important.

Americanah
I don’t care for any other opinions on the themes of Chimamanda Adichie's Americanah. For me, true love made up one of the predominant themes. A theme I hoped and begged the universe to grant me.
The novel’s heroine, Ifemelu would begin an intriguing affaire with her beau Obi from Secondary School.
They’d go on dating through a few years in University before Ifemelu would leave for the U.S. to get her first higher degree.
As much as I have never researched this, I strongly believed Chimamanda was mirroring a part of her own life’s story in Americanah.




First, Adichie had studied Pharmacy for a year and a half at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka before leaving for the US to get a first degree.
I fed on this keen theory of mine, convincing myself it was thoroughly true and then hoped and prayed for a tailored pattern of romance for myself.
This tailoring of another’s narrative is just the way some Nigerians meet a trusted tailor with a particular design they’d want to be …
