  • Becoming Lovers

    By Kiah on April 13, 2017
      The first time we kissed was unexpected; it was two people on a collision course that didn’t know how it would all end up. Worse still, it was in full view of others. By the second time, we were better prepared. I knew how his mouth tasted then, knew the crevices and the strength of his tongue. He wielded […]

    Photo Credit- Unicef   Phew. I miss the days when I wrote like this. It wasn’t that very long ago either. Found this in my email drafts where most of my unfinished tales hide. Enjoy.   Papa told me to tell everyone to call me Mary when we got to Lagos. “But why Papa?” I asked, folding my tiny, frail body […]

  • Loving Cuba

    By Kiah on February 14, 2016
    Che is everywhere in Cuba. And he is Argentinan. But his story is so inspiring that I understand why these people love him so completely. I have heard of him before now but you know how you hear of someone but don’t pay attention. In Cuba, I had no choice. Che is everywhere. I never knew he was a doctor. […]

  • Hadiza

    By Kiah on October 10, 2015
    Dear Hadiza, I was at a philharmonic orchestra last night and suddenly, from nowhere, you crossed my mind. It wasn’t my first orchestra. I have been to too many of these things, too many but not enough. I find that this sort of music calms and inspires me so every chance I get to go to one, I go. I […]

    By Kiah on August 28, 2015
