From Nanyuki With Love

A few weeks ago, in this new decade, I never thought I’d find myself in the northern hemisphere part of Kenya. It is too early to say that I was looking forward to going for the said so trip. It was a family affair. Which meant I would be exchanging pleasantries with long lost relatives…

Thomas

He goes by the name Thomas, or rather Tom as most guys know him. He has barely passed the silver jubilee mark. Tom lives with his siblings in the Kariobangi South area. He dons those Rayban shades which we Nairobians normally buy from the street vendors in an attempt to shade ourselves from the sun…

2K19

What has this year done for me that I would want to remove my clothes and bask in the sun? Or just stand on the rooftop of a building and enjoy the evening sun? What is it about it that it has done or brought delight to you? Or did this year come around with…

#56 – Manman.

Manman, it has been three years since you left. Happy belated 56th birthday if you would still be walking on the face of this earth. You turned a year older in this world two days ago. I do not know of the other one yet. My bad. Your birthday passed and I did not write…

Just A Visitor.

To the unknown, Hi, How are you? The last time I asked that, you didn’t answer. I figured that I shouldn’t have asked. But it’s polite to begin a conversation with that anyway. The first time we met we were worlds apart. You came from the upper echelon while I came from a family that…

First Time.

The first time I jumped into her pool and it felt really nice. She wrapped her long legs around me when it was getting dark and I held on tight. Lying on her, bed the unfamiliar sheets felt so cool on my skin. Going home, I felt that first impression when we walked the long…

1+1=3

  I’m not the type that fancies going down memory lane especially in the wake of rekindling old flames. It never works out the way one would think to be precise. There was a reason why things didn’t work out. There’s a reason why there’s always a sour taste in my mouth whenever I tried…

Grimmjow.

So often we push away the people who would give us the world and keep close those who really dont care much about us and who do their best to avoid us. Everybody has their demons. Some are wide awake whereas some are sleeping, waiting for the right time to be awakened. Oh, I haven’t…
