Ifuen – The Fugitive.

Previously on 88,000 Acres of Bad Shit,… ONE FOOT OUT I’ve been on the run for months now. I have forgotten the feeling and presence of having a family around. I packed my shit one Friday morning and left. I’d left without a goodbye. I never looked back. I drove to the nearby Ibadan state….

All Where He’s Been.

I get attracted to sad and unhappy endings. People who are always in a melancholic state tend to portray more. I want to know where the source of unhappiness is coming from. It’s like going on a wild good chase hunting for treasure on a lost island or whatever archaeological artifacts one would find. I’d…

Sensei.

When karma decides to play ball games like the way it did with Sensei, it makes sure it enables the most difficult settings. He didn’t go looking for problems. Instead problems found him. He says that when you find your house is leaking, just know that it didn’t begin with a crack. Rather it began…

Pebbles.

  Previously on 88,000 Acres of Bad Shit. https://amwadeghu.wordpress.com/2019/01/07/end-of-vacation/ Dr. Artemina’s report came two hours after mother and Nneka had left. Artemina had found me in a sombre mood. She looked gorgeous, but I was more interested in knowing what she wore behind that white coat of hers. My mind wondered in different dimensions. I…

0-9.

Sometimes everything hits you all at once. You lose relationships, change jobs, old friends disappear, new ones come et cetera. It’s usually up one day and down the next. You could have it all on Monday and by Friday have nothing. You’d begin to wonder what’s wrong with you. Haven’t your stars aligned? Is your…

The Yard.

Oftenly, I stagger back to my house late in the evenings, a cigarette dangling from the corners of my lips, at times with a NEMA bag full of food stuffs while other times the food stuffs would have laid a comfortable foundation in my belly. I fumble with the keys alot when opening the main…

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…

Give Me A Little More Time.

Him: I feel it would be better if I had married two wives. Atleast you’d be two. The neighbors have made us a laughing stock for quiet a while now. The love I’ve been pouring. It seems like I’ve been pouring jug fulls of water into the sea. My faith has gone on a down…

A for Aoki.

    “Hold on, Hope is strong.” She said to him. Your wounds they show. Your scars are bleeding. They tell of a struggle within you. She knew you had never felt so low. But hold on. She knows you’ll be strong. Hold on till you hear them come. It’s a dark place you’re in….

Kids In Love.

(L.E.D bars). 28th May 2018. Dar Es Salaam. Everyday I wake up light a cigarette and stare at the sky change from dark to dawn as I watch the sunrise from my living room window. And every night before midnight I fish out a stick and light it up while relaxing outside my balcony as…
