'Happy New Year!' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Happy new year.
I wish you the best,
For the year ahead.
I hope the year is full of bliss,
Full of joy.

I hope you find love,
I hope you find the one.
I pray you find happiness,
And all you have ever wished for.

May this year be the best,
Of all the years you have lived.
And may it be the first,
Of many more years to come.

'I Love You So...' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

The wind is blowing,
Gently, on this cool night.
As we overlook the city,
Shinning bright, with lights.

The roof is empty.
Nothing but our silhouettes,
Moving, in the darkness.

You come close,
Standing on a tiptoe.
I look into your eyes.
And then I know,
Deep in my heart,
How much, I love you so.

The Darkness is Coming by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

*The Darkness is Coming... *

The door is open.
Monsters might be lurking.
Do you see your life as just a token?
Would you even live long enough for your story to be spoken?

Stop shivering, start praying.
Stop screaming, start acting.
Stop looking, start running.
For the Demons, are coming.

Your dreams, they are haunting.
Your blood, they are craving.
For Your sound, they are listening.
For them to pounce, while you are sleeping.

The Boogeyman is in town.
Pound, Pound, Pound.
The heart sounds.
Silent, goes the town.
Empty, goes the crowd.
As the Darkness, grips the clouds.
Even the King shall not be saved by...

'A Real Smile...' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Yes, I smile.
All the time,
I always have.

But it’s all an act,
A façade.
A mask,
Just to hide behind.

An answer;
A means to distract,
For those who pry.

I do try to smile;
‘A real smile’,
When I have a reason why.

I only wish I had;
Reasons to smile,
‘A real smile’.

'Do Anymore...' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Baby, come back to bed.
Come back to me.

Come back into my arms.
Let's just stay in/within,
And forget the world outside/without.

Let me hold you close.
For as long as you want.
Let me make love to you.
Until we are too tired,
To do anymore.

'Carpe Diem - Seize The Day' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow isn't sure.
Today is a present.
Don't let it past.

Seize the day.
No matter the challenges,
The present presents.

Seize the day.
Whether tomorrow comes;
Or not.
Give it your all.

'Over There. . .' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

I saw you over there,
Across the street.
A beautiful angel,
With a smile,
Even more pretty.

I glance your way,
I can't help it.
I trip,
I almost fall,
But its totally worth it.

You saw me looking,
Catching my gaze,
Holding it.

My heart races,
My body starts to sweat.
I look away,

I take a moment,
To act like I wasn't looking.
Eyes darting around,
Like I was looking for something.

I gather up the courage,
To look at you once again.

I turn my head to you.
And all I see,
Is an angel,
Smiling back at me.

'Take My Hand. . .' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

The night is dark.
The path is long.
The monsters are out.
In the shadows, they lurk.

Take my hand.
Let us find our way home.
No matter what comes tonight,
I promise to never leave you alone.

That Night - #SheSaid (Chapter 3)

'Write a story, she said.
You have a way with words.
Write a story just for us.

Write a story I would like,
A story that would make me smile.

Write about our first night.
That magical night.
A night of passion,
Pleasure, and delight.

The night I made you mine.
The night you made me, yours.

Kissing me in the right places.
Lingering, at the right spots.

Your touch,
Sending the right messages.
Oh God, my heart wouldn't stop.

That night was great,
One like no other.
The moon has come out to play,
Let us make this another... '

"I Smiled First. . ." (#SheSaid - Chapter 2) by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Write a story, she said.
You have a way with words.

Write any story.
As long as it's yours,
I will always read it.

You can write about our first kiss.
Under the moonlight,
Candles lit.

Lilies on the table,
Rose petals on the floor.
The band was playing our song.
We danced all night long.

You held me in your arms.
I felt a warmth like never before.
You whispered into my ears.
Saying all the right words.

You looked into my eyes.
I looked into yours.
You smiled at me.
But I smiled first.

You leaned in,
I reached up.
The sparks were flying.
My body tingling,

Then again, you look...

"The Call. . ." by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

The night is cool,
The perfect weather for two.
Nothing but the quiet.
It's just me and you.

Water dripping,
My body is calling.
Come close, hearken to me.
I want you inside of me. . .

'Enchanted (#SheSaid - Chapter 1)' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Write a story, she said.
You have a way with words;
Write about us.

The day we met.
Under the sunset.
On the water's shores.
Overlooking the ocean.

The day I saw you over there.
We caught each other looking.
Our eyes met.
I shied away.
Giggling, as I turned my head.

I looked again,
And you were almost there.
Walking up to me,
With a smile on your face.

Before any words were said,
I was already, enchanted.

'Perfect Isn't Enough' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

I'm so sorry
I never meant to hurt your feelings.
I tried and tried.
I tried to tell you so many times.

But always waiting for me was a smile.
Breakfast in bed, at the right times.
Always there, to kiss me good night.
Never faulting, ever the gentleman.

Your company, always a delight.
The host with the treats,
The guest with the gift.

You were always happy,
Always kind.
The nice guy.

I didn't want to take that away.
I didn't want to make you cry.
How do I tell you I don't love you anymore?

You remember the dates,
You always put me first.
You do everything right.

So, How do I tell you that 'perfect' isn't making me ha...

Under The Tree by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

You never had time for me
But you went to see him.

I called for weeks.
Hoping to see you,
Even if it was for a minute

But you said you were busy.
Had things to do.
Things that could not wait.
Things that were more important,
Than anything.

Imagine my disbelief.
When I saw you under that tree.
Holding his hand; smiling
Laughing, bearing all your teeth.
Touching his face, affectionately.
Leaning in, going for a kiss.
My God, I couldn't believe it.

I thought we had something.
I thought you said it was just me.
I thought you said I was your everything.

I'm not even mad or angry
I'm only sad,
You never looked at me.
The way you ...

'End of Time...' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

Blank canvas.
Paintbrush in hand.
I don't even know where to start.
How will one paint a beauty so fine?

How many colours will I mix,
Just to get your shade right.
How many times will I try,
Just to make sure I get that smile.

For yours, is a beauty that can't be painted
A beauty that can't be described.
A beauty that won't be seen again.
Till the end of time. . .

'I Love The Way. . .' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

I love the way you say my name.
Whispering into my ears.
Calling out gently, softly.

I love the way you touch my skin.
My breath vanishing.
Spine, tingling.

I love the way you kiss my lips.
Playful, teasing.
Biting, licking.

I love the way you take me there
To the shores of pleasure,
And to the gates of excitement.

"Too Late..." by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

What more can I do to prove my worth?
How much more do I have to endure?
What can I do to finally earn your trust?
What else can I do to show you, you're 'the one'?

What did I do to be treated this way?
I keep trying, but all you're doing is pushing me away.
You keep making excuses, giving delays.
What else can I do to show you I'm here to stay?

Is it because I care? Too much?
Or because I'm always the first to say I'm wrong?
Is it 'cause I still give you chance after chance?
Or are you tired? You want me to give up?

Did I do something wrong?
Or you simply don't want me anymore?
All you have to do is say the word.
There's no ...

Ghosts by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

I believe in ghosts.

The haunting memories of nightmares past.
The spooky stories buried inside.
The life I thought I left behind.
The demons I thought I left in the past.

The scary torment of which I thought I was free.
The sins I thought were forgiven.
The bodies, deep; that I hoped were forgotten.
The creatures I thought were dead to me.

I believe in ghosts.

I see them taking form.
Circling, over a prey they thought was lost.
Rejoicing, that their moment has come.
For the hunt, has just begun.

I believe in ghosts.

I’m all alone in the dark.
A dark and creepy night.
Armed with nothing but the moon’s light.
I believe in ghosts.
