Ten Things I Hate About You

Poem By Adaobi Chiemelu

Ten Things I Hate About You

1. I hate that you make plans with me, but you only make them to break them.

2. I hate that sometimes I can't deal with your arrogance even when it's not directed towards me.

3. I hate that your hugs make me forget the ways you've hurt me and remember how you love me.

4. I hate that you spend a lot of time with a one other girl cause its 'ok' if you're not sleeping with her.

5. I hate that when you talk of abusive relationships you warn me of condoning such and it's true.

6. I hate that you treat me with the same wand of impatience and hurry like you do everyone else.

7. I hate that you convince me that you are a dark lord even though you believe in Jesus.

8. I hate that your pride lets you live on someone else just because you can and I hate that I'm not there.

9. I hate that you hate and you have to deal with things you didn't know about me before you knew me.

10. And then I hate everything I hate about you because in the end, even if I don't want to, I still love you.

Baa Baa Black Sheep




My opinion is in a messy box
It used to follow a sect of duck-trines in that same box
Duck-trines groomed in the form of a spider
It was caught in the spider's web which wilt wider



He's sitting there like an open book, waiting for me to read him
A part of him poking out, waiting for me to search him

Early To Bed

Early to bed

I'm seeking sleep eagerly
Cause I want to have my color when I wake up in the morning

Sweet Motherhood

Sweet motherhood 1

It's a special delight talking about her children
About the things they said and the way they had said the things they said

Broken Class

Class upon class
Meet at an edge
Discuss briefings from a steady hand cut ledge
What happens in class
