Christmas Gratitude

Merry Christmas loves, I hope we are all having a good one.

The Heart Lender

broken-heart-1436923

“Never again”, I said
Every single time I cried.
I kept saying I wouldn’t go back
You had left on me a scar, a mark;
Broken me inside, a thousand pieces
Shaken by a series of shivers and sobbings.

“Never again”, I promised myself
To leave our past on the shelf
To gather up dust. Memories
To be recollected by occasional reveries
Of when you had brought me back,
To you it was just a lark.

“Never again”, I promised
But that statement was missed,
Lost in the swift enchantment
Of your fast-dying Love and commitment.
But oh what a supreme blunder
As I was back crying, sad as ever.

“Never again”, I say,
Meaning it with all the rays of May.
The final curtain’s been drawn,
That chapter closed and gone.
Never again will I lend you my heart,
And that I mean with all that’s left of my Might.

I Missed You, Yes, You!!

Hola! Salut! Ciao, fellow inhabitants of blogging-land. How have you all been? I’m sorry that I have neglected you all for so long. I’ve just been too busy with school and other things that I never have time to even visit my neighbours’ blogs, talk less of updating mine. I even have exams coming up but I know that God is with me.

I really didn’t plan this post before I started writing haha, I just thought I should say hi to you all. Unfortunately, I could not finish my Writing101 course because I’ve been busy but I will try to do some assignments before this week runs out (sorry my Writing101 friends :oops:).

Today is Tuesday and I really love tuesdays, mainly because I’m always exceptionally happy and have only 3 classes at school 😁. I’m actually on my way to school right now and listening to music, which reminds me of when someone said I listen to weird music 😂😂. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not weird (most of the time 😉 ).

Basically, the thing is I don’t listen to just any kind of music. I mostly listen to Pop, RnB, Rap and Alternative Rock (you could add a bit of rock there too). Anyways, I can be very selective with the artistes I listen to, I don’t just download any hit song just because everyone has that song. If I don’t like the artiste then I won’t get the song. Also, a major turn off for me is when a song contains too many ‘bad’ words and doesn’t make sense to me. That kind of song has no business in my music library AT ALL!

I listen mostly to artistes/bands like U2, Paramore, Adele, Ella Henderson, Meghan Trainor, Lecrae and other related ones. I also listen to gospel artistes like Tasha Cobbs, Kierra Sheards, Smokie Norful, Tye Tribett and so on, they really lift up my spirits :mrgreen: (took a cue from Amina 😆)

Haha so even though I veered off topic (not that I had any topic at first 😂), at least you all learned something about me ☺. Well I’m back now and I promise to post at least once a week, just so you don’t miss me too much 😉 😉 .

BTW here’s a question for you all, how have you been and what kind of music do you like?

Strawberry kisses,
Aanu
