The Girl At The Olympics (The Raconteur)



This is the reaction after the thing,
This is the other side of me you never got to see,
This is me after you,
This is me without you,
This is for the youthful mind to understand the difference between the future and the present.

You know I'll be the first to be proud of you after your fam,
You know you'll be no less than the girl at the Olympics,
You know you'll never know how proud of you I was, when I heard that,
You know these days I'm more or less your Stan.
You know when I heard of this, 
I just wanted to wrap you so tight in the circle of my arms,
with you listening to rhythm of my joyful heart.
I remember how you spoke about events like this.
You know this piece isn't one to make your heart beat in calmness or boost your confidence, 
Oh girl, you thought wrong.

Bittersweet,
You know you'll always have a soft spot in my heart but not as soft as it used to be,
You know you'll be in my thoughts but not as deep as before,
You know I'll one way or another try to know how you're doing.
That's just me,
I'm caring and honest,
I do it because I don't wanna do it.

A former presidential candidate in my country once told me the ideology of life and our personalities.
He said,
"As a young man, you're are learning about life, 
Trying hard to better your tomorrow,
Females can change your tomorrow.
When you're working on your dreams, they'd be too many constraints and in most cases,
It's always the ones we want we don't get and get the ones that we need.
And if you're lucky,
Your wants coincides with your needs,
A happy man you'll be in your lifetime".
I could relate well to what he said as I made reference to you and the girl described as a flower with yellow petals and the girl described in sorry dear ex.
That awoken reality in me and I found comfortability and expressions in my solitude and my poetry.

I wrote this on a Thursday, the 17th of March,
And if I was asked to throwback a memory of us on a Thursday,
I still wouldn't throw back a memory of us on a throwback Thursday,
Life is continuity so there's no point living the past.
I find it hard to say the things I felt comfortable saying and find it hard to feel the way I once felt,
This isn't written out of sheer bitterness or vainly feelings,
But rather out of pure genuinely feelings.

The similarity between then and now is the fact I still want to know you're fine,
And if you ever feel down or need someone to talk to, 
Just know I can  help,
That's just me and that's being real,

C'est la vie, mon ami.

Sex With You (The Raconteur)

I can't possibly deny the fact that, Sex with you, Is the best I've had thus far. Haven't had much of it these days, Switched priorities! I Seldom reminisce about some naughty moments of you and your fuck me face, Maybe this is the only way I can keep you running through my mind on a canal loop.
I can't arguably deny that you were ideal enough to kickstart things with, But a peek over your shoulders and I see your dirts. And when we needed ironing issues out with a million things to say, We then become loud in silence and leave it up to the sex to resolve it all. At least it did resolve things until the same issues came up.
I can't arguably deny that I was naive with my decision making and let a couple of words from other people get to my head. The only thing that changed about me is change, And looking back on those days, I'd probably make a different decision right now, I guess I've really killed some part of the boy I once familiarized myself with, To a benign man who h…

Future Daughter (The Raconteur)

I heard Bruce Willis say; "God gives us children so we can have roses in December". But I know with you, he'll give me a garden full. That's a bounty for the bountiful,
From a birds eye view, I'll watch you grow into a Wonder Woman, One that knows how to mend a broken heart but often times take charge of situations. I'll groom you up into an African woman, You'll have a strange name that holds earthly meanings of your root, your culture and tribe. When people laugh at your own, Sing cheers of Hallelujah because they only mock the continuity of life.
I'll have men chase unicorns then feel butterflies in their stomach,  Before they can even come close to tasting your sweetness, sweetness. Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, I have a sense of eunoia writing this because I know you hold an allure, I'll breed you into Psalm 31,  So virtuousness will be the order of your day. I know you'll be a logophile, I pray you don't become an eccedentesiast, Whenever you feel down, …
