Part 1 & 2

Part I

It means nothing.

It means nothing.

It is just tremors that overtake your heartbeat and convulse you to a release

It is just a steady hand gripping the flesh of your thighs in a silent instruction of how and when to move

It is only sounds of words incoherent and yet most understood

It is only texts and emails that help to set the mood

It is only skin that tastes of man and sweat and cologne and heated promises

It is only the steady rhythm of probing thrusts

It is only the crippling guilt of exchanged looks as he chats away blissfully unaware

It is only the turmoil of a horribly kept secret.

It means nothing.

And neither will the next time.



Part II
Abeni
Abeni sits
Abeni sits outside
Abeni sits outside because
Abeni sits outside because she
Abeni sits outside because she cannot
Abeni sits outside because she cannot go
Abeni sits outside because she cannot go inside

Abeni
Abeni is
Abeni is scared
Abeni is scared to
Abeni is scared to go
Abeni is scared to go and
Abeni is scared to go and beg
Abeni is scared to go and beg Kajola
Abeni is scared to go and beg Kajola to forgive her because she has embarassed Kajola

You see
You see Abeni
You see Abeni thought
You see Abeni thought Kajola
You see Abeni thought Kajola was
You see Abeni thought Kajola was cheating on her with her best friend Motun

So
So Abeni
So Abeni went
So Abeni went to
So Abeni went to Motun's
So Abeni went to Motun's house
So Abeni went to Motun's house with
So Abeni went to Motun's house with "awon boys" to burn the new car that Abeni believed Kajola had just bought for his mistress

It turned out
That the car was for Abeni
And Kajola had parked it in Motun's house
In preparation for Abeni's fortieth

The
The fire
The fire damaged
The fire damaged part
The fire damaged part of the house

Motun

So
So Abeni
So Abeni sits
So Abeni sits outside
So Abeni sits outside because
So Abeni sits outside because she
So Abeni sits outside because she cannot
So Abeni sits outside because she cannot go inside.

Nice

Hengish said...

Thats really cool.

Thanks for leaving a msg on my page but you just can't say mixed up and fade like that now. You have to elaborate on it.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Ugo Daniels said...

As for part I, i totally disagree. It's DEFINITELY something when you look at it from a deeper perspective. Personal opinion, nonetheless

...Happy New Year!

UnNaked Soul said...

somewhere between the beginning and the end lies a meaning, albeit short-lived. Not entirely nothing.

wonderfully done...

Jinta said...

already forgotten abeni, i like part 1.

Owumi said...

I loved the rhythm of Part II... loved loved loved it!

Are Part I and Part II related?

At the risk of sounding like I'm analyzing it like literature in English for SSCE... could it be that he really was cheating on her afterall... yes the car was for Abeni but still, there was something going on? And now Abeni sits outside while K and M convince themselves it meant nothing?

akin said...

@bumight, exactly how I felt!
Part II reminded me those ‘Queen premier’ books we read as kids.
“A cat
A cat sat
A fat cat sat
A fat cat sat on a mat”

Ms. emmotions said...

howdy?

Allied said...

Part 1 - It always means something. If it didn’t we would not analyze it.

Part 2 - trust, jealousy, patient and anger. Abeni might have accidentally fuel was she was set to destroy. Kajola and Motun will now see they have a chance.

Naapali said...

Just when I was wondering what happened to the Academies u went and dropped this one.

Liked both. nothing is without meaning though we may not know what the meaning or its significance is.

As for Abeni, she should stay away from matches.

Zephi said...

LMAO..I should not be laughing, sometimes assumptions and insecurity can be a bitch...poor abeni
How the hell do you come up with shit like this..
