  • The Things No One Told You…

    By Kiah on April 17, 2017
    Mr. Gbolagade Adeowuro 4 Midchester Avenue, White Plains NY 06007 Dear Gbolagade, These are the things no one told you but they should have… That Ifeade, your sister, the one you looked up to, the one you loved more than anyone else, even your parents, the one whose death forced you to be more than you ever were, the one […]

  • Places We Find Magic

    By Kiah on April 8, 2016
    Lol…Bear with me guys…I am in a fun mood these days. Beware the Duane Reades of this world. Those seemingly innocuous detours on the journey of life  where nothing magical ever seems to happen; pharmacies, 7-elevens, gas stations, traffic stops, botanical parks in wintertime, train stations, trains, buses… No matter where in the world you are, there is a Duane […]

  • Wells Street

    By Kiah on June 2, 2015
    Maybe  what wanderlust really means is this; restlessness till you find home, restlessness till old love loves you anew, sleeplessness till you can sleep sweetly, sadness till happiness returns…always seeking. “I sought the Lord and he heard me and delivered me from all of my fears.” Psalm 34 This one is for you, Brooklyn… PS: There is an actual Wells […]

  • Crossroads

    By Kiah on September 4, 2014
    He was too early. The email had said 11am at the Nethermead. Yet here he was, right place but wrong timing. He smiled bitterly to think about how that statement summed up his whole life. It was a little after 10am and the city was only just waking up after the debauchery of Friday night. Osamudiame held onto his coffee […]

  • The Almost Third Anniversary

    By Kiah on June 4, 2014
    There is something wrong with this story…y’all don’t need to tell me. I know. Lol. I will fix it when my head is a better place. This one is for the man who is the platform from which I launch every morning…the one who lets me bury my fears in his dreams every night so that I can awaken unafraid […]

  • Nadia

    By Kiah on May 28, 2013
    “Hi.” “Hi.” “Beautiful day?” “Yes, yes it is.” He holds on tight to his coffee cup. It had gone cold while he was waiting for her. He is afraid to look at her; afraid she will even be more beautiful than the last time he saw her and then he would fall to pieces. They are sitting on their bench […]

  • The girl with bronze in her ears

    By Kiah on May 21, 2012
    The first thing that attracted me to her were her earrings. Now, I know most people probably think this is the worst thing I could have ever admitted. Worse than admitting that I secretly ogle half- naked people sunbathing at Central Park. Worse than the fact that I have taken up smoking despite what the Federal Ministry of Health says. […]

  • Memory

    By Kiah on November 11, 2011
    Memory cheats. In this game called life, memory knows it has the upper hand. And so it waits till it is a couple of months later; it waits till you feel like the wounds are healing nicely, it holds on till the dull ache where your heart used to be is gone. Memory bides its time till laughter is your […]
