The sky is the sea of the gods
The clouds, the snow of the angels

The trees are for us to do with as we like
and the sea, an open inquisition.
Still, you are confined within the
walls of yourself,
your desires and your steam.
The ragdolled child beside me
whimpers in reckless precision.
What an attention seeking whore I sigh inwardly as I pick the ragdoll up,
off the ground
and into my arms.
Of course it stops whimpering,
settles in and falls asleep.
Like I said, an attention seeking whore.
I look back, then
up at the sea of skies
and snowy clouds.
The army of birds spread out their wings
as they sun scotches my forehead.
It is at such moments I
think of you,
not as a whole
God no, certainly not,
just that piece of
perfect wrinkled-eye smile
and calming clichés,
I defer to believe.
Maybe you are disarrayed
Allow me to rephrase,
I think of you whenever I
look into the sea of the skies.
The ragdoll is still peacefully asleep,
what a contented little thing.
If only.

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.

I'm a Buffer Girl pour l'Amour 2

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 …
