Musings

  How soon is too soon Before the rust on love  Is washed away The first sight? The first hello? Where do you go When you find yourself Nursing a thirst for a human soul So alien to you It dehydrates your concentration Only your eyes can see it Your souls have met That voice That unshakable nature The weird echoes of joy Is all you're afforded Nonetheless priceless They say the third eye is clearest So you're sure That seeing it In your dreams  Is nothing but a good sign Will I ever see you? Or will my dreams  Remain the only bridge  Upon which our stars cross By Deelivia and Damilare

Forbidden

I craved a love so deep I got it... literally  Rivers of affection flowed It made me so cold I only wanted a bowl But my thirst, I could not control I walked by the riverbank  To draw my peace I heard a voice sing my name My hallucinations tried to play a game I have heard about mermaids My grandmother said they are evil But this was the purest being ever Her eyes filled with innocent desire She sang again, softer and sweeter To ignore the voice would be bitter  She left, and I dived into the river  Hoping not to shiver  I swam several feet deep For this goddess, I must keep Joined by love Forbidden by nature To drown or to float? I choose to drown She is the cold water to my thirsty soul  I craved a love so deep I got it... literally ******************* Inspired and edited by Oluwadamilare Sanusi

This Song

A chorus resounds in my ears I recognize the voice I’ve heard it times before It has become my medicine A chorus resounds in my ears It gladdens my heart It calms my nerves The lyrics- my mantra! A chorus resounds in my ears Oh! How sweet the melody! That put me to sleep every night And opened doors to my beautiful dreamland A chorus resounds in my ears This song now lives in my memory For I no longer hear it at bedtime My mother, the singer, has gone to rest...in peace

A Girl. A Canoe. A Horse.

Take me on a ride I’ll let you be my guide I’m just a lonely child Abandoned, now free n wild I find comfort on these shores As I ride on my horse Take me on a ride Let nature be our guide We have to ourselves Land and sea On which would you guide me? My horse or my canoe? Images shot by me: @deeliviaimagery Location: Atican Beach, Lagos during Lens on the Beach 1.0 by @lenschronicles__ Thanks for reading.

Newfoundland

St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ  I shut the door at them I let you in I chased them all away I let you stay Before I set my eyes on you My heart beat for you Still haven't set eyes on you But pictures help hold on to you Far away from here I know you are here I am safe, I don't fear My heart holds you dear Dazed by Cupid's magic wand I sway to the tune of Love's band I found in Newfoundland My own new found land 17.11.18

She tried

She tried to show you  But you wouldn’t see She tried to tell you  But you wouldn’t listen Oops! Sorry ma’am, Miss. “Your own is even better” Not here to compare conditions  Not here to measure situations  Not here for any of the    ‘tions’  She just wanted a listening ear And an empathetic mind  She tried to show you  But you wouldn’t see She tried to tell you  But you wouldn’t listen ฤ˜ pรจlรฉ ooo Mr. “I’ve been through worse” Life doesn’t revolve around you She just wanted help Her soul screamed for love! We all have our struggles But life would feel lighter  if only we’re there for one another She tried to show you  But you wouldn’t see She tried to tell you  But you wouldn’t listen You were blind You were deaf You were insensitive  And now she’s dead Congrats!

Photo Credit: Deji Adeoba (I love you gan ni) Hello Deelivians! I trust you’re doing great. I’ve missed youuu ๐Ÿ˜˜ It’s my 25th birthday! Whoop whoop! In the last 365 days, I have come to learn a lot about myself. Earlier this year till recently, I had to deal with a lot of unpleasant happenings. That’s pretty normal, right? Life is full of ups and downs. The downs this ldast year of my life ehn! No be beans. I even had a mental challenge for a while about 2 months ago (don’t ask), but I thank God for good people that SLAPPED it out of me. However, something super duper exciting happened to me early in January though. Hehe, again, don’t ask.  To foster positive thinking and to learn more about myself and make me happy, I asked 25 people (male, female, teens, young adults, close people, people I’ve never met, etc) to tell me what they like about me. I chose 25 because I’m clocking 25,lol. This is a sort of feedback and personal behavioral evaluation. What to do with w
