At times they say, it is your absence that makes people miss you but they forget to say that even at your absence, — that they are not able to reach out to you when they want to do make them unmiss you yet miss you with no desperation as much as they had needed to hear from you. They have you fresh in their memory but they can not reach you simply because they do not have the chance....

Then, how could missing someone be felt or expressed?

Man itself is conscious cum subconscious or even unconscious (to the public) of what happens to him — that, man, in his sleep, dreams and feels it is a reality that occurred when he's not fully present. That, although, it is not an illusion as some would think a dream is, (which a dream is one of the subconscious things that happens to man when he lays on his bed and goes into thoughts; earlier preoccupied or not even when his mind is absent; that's why dreams are called divine) feels yet remembers or forget to remember that he has dreamt about something in an exact way which he dreamt it. That is, man's consciousness is limited yet, unlimited to the things he cannot say of precisely cum accurately but feels could be realistic as well as being seen as fake/illusory; via just a flash through a thought or a well exhausted thought in the mind.
A boy may not know that schooling is different from being educated yet feels the best education is what the school gives. It is the mental and primary thought which may either be consciously effected as a result of the kind of society he stays or as a result of his personal intuition (being also affected by the society) or subconsciously effected as self realization is yet to be unveiled (hence this is at the pre-realization stage). Hence, the human mind works in a way that isn't thought even that as well planned a plan is, it gets flawed — human mind works both consciously and subconsciously as being unconscious is just the language unclear to the victim who has something else going on in his mental trance which technically or scientifically seem as unconsciousness to you. A feeling of blank darkness by an accidental victim is consciousness or subconsciousness to him while such feeling can be proven as unconsciousness by science because the unconscious state is what others(science and people) see, not the victim.

I have digressed enough in a bid to establish my point.

Missing someone may be greatly crippled/crippling to be expressed yet felt, either intentionally or unintentionally. It may however not also be crippled but hard to express. So the person being missed, being conscious of this darkness (that he may be missed but unaccessible) makes it hard to believe that really, he is missed by some people he loves yet the non-void(fill up) of this darkness makes it better; that absence may be felt but may not be expressed, and that absence has not been felt which isn't certain.

It all comes back to solely depend on the level of relationship and impact on both the Missed and those missing the Missed.

The resolution of this piece dissolves to; man finding a place to balance his mental violence and curiosity on either being missed by the public or not, either which is certain and uncertain. It all deals with the consciousness of the subject missed and the object that should missed the subject.

Read the story. TEARS IN MY EYES



                     TEARS IN MY EYES     The anxiety for sex prompted the award winning and young Nigerian poet (Ololade Akinlabi Ige) to sharpen the keen mouth of his pen to write the novella: TEARS IN MY EYES. This is a book for everyone to read.
The pains and agony the main character in the novella went through were meant to awake the conscience of the wicked being. 

     Ariyo is a beautiful lady. Eyes cannot deny that. She is a product of rape but she leaves behind her worries knowing fully well that the world is good for no one. But she feels it is very stupid if she eventually falls victim of what led her to life. She tries to always avoid intimate relationship with boys because she knows quite well that boys often come with different missions in which most of the time their common mission is sex, sex and sex.
     But we are all human being, this heart needs a companion. So it is for Ariyo who uncons…



Once upon a time, a woman has a big store for her chickens. The chickens are so big that they give big and good eggs everytime they release eggs. The woman fed them so much that they were weighty even after releasing eggs.
One day, a customer brought some local hens to her, she said
"Try them, they are also good hens. They give big eggs as well. You'll enjoy keeping and feeding them."

The woman collected them and added them with his chickens. The chickens and the local hens stayed together in a place.
One day, the woman gave them the normal food they eat, as the chickens pecked their food moderately, the local hens scattered it with their legs as they peck, they scattered it around and peck, they did that till they liter the whole place.
Mother hen looked at the chickens,
"We're the same now, we eat the same food. We will yield the same eggs, we will be on the postal too."
The chickens flap their feathers feebly and rested th…

BOOK: SANE SANDS OF DUSTY DAWNin honour of Late Pa Adeniran Adefemi.
Today, songs by Banners welcomed me, and just then, I was brought to the knowledge of this post which I'd forgotten.
It is sad, it is disheartening yet overtime, it has come to my psychological reasoning that Joseph, best known as Prince Joe is recovering from this saddening occurrence and I feel he has been encouraged. He needs cheerful people around him, not people that will bring such memories...
     However, it is pertinent to note that when you have people around you, know that you don't have dirty clothes. And if you don't have people, know that you are not alone, you only need to move closer to those you think hate you. Trust me, they can follow you into the storm, stand and fall with you, you can count on them...friends can, only if you move closer to them.
     Life and death are two parallel lines, you either die or live. We do not want to die but we deserve death, because since we are born, what d…
