Mage: What are we doing, Kay?

Kay: What do you mean, Mage? I like you. I like spending time with you. And you like me too. Or am I missing something?

Mage: I like you more than a friend. And we’ve been acting “extra friendly”. What are we?

Kay(scratches back of his neck): Honestly I don’t know…but I really like you. Let’s just move with the flow. Things will work themselves out… somehow.

Mage(uncertain and unsure about the situation): No worries then.

Faces close to each other. Breaths as one then slowly ends with a passionate kiss and a sleepover.

He said, “Hello”,
I said “Hi”.
Drums had been hit.
The dance had just begun.
A little while,
And he had my attention
And my heart.
A playful tease,
A constant concern,
More than lols,
And I had madly fallen in love!
He was there.
Time and space meant nothing to us!
Pinned to the top of my WhatsApp.

Satisfied with a bit of social media stalking,
He had my concern,
He had my heart.
And with my little bouts of craziness,
I said, “Kay, I really like you
I really do.”
The lingering looks,
The out of the world smiles.
I had fallen,
Fallen so hard for someone who
In my heart and head was mine.

Then that toxicated midnight,
When our words were paused
And only our held breaths could be felt through each other’s cell.
He said, “I love you.”
Finally, he did !
Level one over!
So much anticipated a name tag!
For the hands holding,
For the stolen kisses,
For the cuddles and sleepovers.

But that night,
After the frustration you put me through
My texts were always blue ticked
You rushed with my calls
Something was wrong.
I asked you why,
I asked you how
But all these questions were absolutely ridiculous.
So I asked you,
“What are we, Kay?”
And with confusion you asked,
“What do you mean?”
Your timing for playing lost was driving me crazy.
So I boldly asked,
“Are we dating or something?”
And dude stupidly said,
“Mage, I’m not sure we are dating
But we have something special between us.
Or…better still let’s not complicate things.
Let’s just be special friends”
Special friends huh?
It had ended in tears.
He wanted friendship now
And I desired a labeled intimacy!
Wait it had ended in super tears.
There was a situation
And I had sailed with its ship.

It felt so good!
So darn right!

But had no name.
I realized,
It was an emotion!
Not a bloody noun.
Now my heart was breaking!
And I hadn’t even happened to be in a relationship at all.
I thought love sucked.
Till I realized situationships sucked the hell out of you.
And people tell you,
“You can’t be mad.”
“You guys just liked each other.”

“It was not a relationship…or anything.”
But to me, it was something
Now I don’t regret it.
A lesson learnt
Love is an open door?
Well, I’ve closed it!

Ladies and gentlemen, how do you do😉😉😉?

Mehn situationships are crazy fun and lovey dovey till they are not.

Hopefully we all learn to appreciate our experiences and stay away from certain situation…ships.

Happy New Month y’all.

Keep making your dreams come true!

A young lady with a passion for anything and everything artsy. Painting with words is what I do best. The motive is not to create the perfect picture of emotions, thoughts and feelings. It is to appreciate those imperfect flaws and choices that will always make every story worth telling. My dream is that someday people will learn to tell their stories regardless. Stories heal, and they need to be heard.

Another banger from the lady of love herself!

If Abis stays to stay away from situationships, who am I, a mere commoner, to say otherwise? 🤭

I’ve always struggled to understand that word situationship and I think your post has really enlightened me.
It’s a sad encounter you know. And some people just accept it hoping that the narrative changes knowing pretty well the other person has defined their direction for whatever ‘relationship’ there is. But as always it ends in tears😂😭
Both may enjoy it while it lasts, but the endgame is tragic if prolonged.

I enjoyed the read💚
