Come back love

I have felt for the longest time

that i needed you

you have been my strength and yet my weakness

I have been hurt, bruised, and left wallowing in self pity

I fear the slightest thought of losing you

you have become my energy

my sun

my moon

my life

you are the water i drink, the food i eat, the breathe i take

you are life itself

the smell of spring always brings so much memories because it was the time me meet

the time you took me to that cottage of yours and i smelt what fresh mahogany crafted into furniture smelt like

anytime i walk through anywhere i feel you presence in my life

your skin

your soft skin

and your sweat or the smell of your sweat was like a strong strength

anytime i think of the times you will embrace me

with your sweat dripping down your face and touches my check

i would close my eyes, tilt my head and let it pass through my lips

oh my warrior

my prince

my source of life

where did it all go wrong

why did i let you go

why did you leave me

leave me, with this hole in my chest that is burning me so badly that i cannot help but cry cry and cry that i have lost it all

i am sitting here in the cottage

the cottage where our bodies lay

Love me by my heart

They say love is a beautiful thing which it indeed is or at least can be. So, why then are people prejudice in who they love or choose to love. People generally tend to classify individuals in two classes tagged ‘black’ and white’ based on their skin colour. It beats me when let’s say a black guy will say ‘oh i prefer to be with a white girl’ or a white girl saying oh i prefer a chocolate guy’ what in the world is chocolate anyway.

Let’s not even talk about the racial myopic individuals who say it must i repeat ‘must’ be a man/woman from my tribe which i think is just crazy and sad.

While writing this i can consider several factors affecting this subject such as:

Culture– it may happen, that you are from certain parts of the world where it is ‘forbidden’ to be with someone from another tribe or race and out of fear join in to the outcry of ‘your people’ exclaiming that you can only marry people from your place. This tradition, in places it still exists i just shake my head because it is ‘so stupid’ in all ramifications. why in the world will you be prevented from pursuing the love that your heart desires simply because it is what my culture demands. when you ask these people the reasons for such traditions they say

‘yes you see, our culture has this religion, this believe, and we cannot accept someone from a different believe coming in to influence or destroy what we have build and have believed in for centuries’.

okay, that, i understand can be hard but, don’t you think it is up to the two individuals involved to decide if they can cope with these issues, can’t they reach an understanding and do they have ground rules that it is mutually agreeable to counter future concerns. these are the kinds of questions to be asked not a solid no and the topic like its some kind of deadly disease to stay away from.

Discrimination and stereotypes: Basically, Mr A is from AAA and they are all selfish people in AAA so, Mr A must be selfish too, without giving him a chance you conclude that you cannot be with him. Miss B is from BBB, is from a rich family and Mr Bb is also from BBB but from a poor family the moment Miss B finds out he is poor that the end, she stops seeing him. Miss B here has been selfish and already tagged him as a ‘gold digger’ not in my social class/league’ which might not be the case however, it is also possible that Mr Bb finds out she is rich and maneuvers his way just to get his hands on her money, to be fair this class of people are just pitiful

Personal ulterior motives: So, you might want someone because they are a particular skin colour because you feel that tribe/race will give you more opportunities so, you go in and befriend that random person to attain your selfish goal. people in this group do you ever reason how dumb you sound and think. or a ‘black girl’ saying a prefer i a ‘white man’ because i think am too dark and getting married to a black man will make my children even darker. Don’t get me wrong here, have your preferences but do not base them on unimportant things that has zero effect, so what if you have darker or whiter children- beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

i know people will read this and still continue with their way of life, i think love is characterised by happiness, peace and devoid of deceit and ulterior motives. i also know, people will argue that they can make their own happiness and its nobody’s business who they want or they reasons behind it. of course its nobody’s business whatever, makes you sleep well at night. however i say love should not be judged by the colour of your skin or marred by culture, personal gains or stereotypes.

love me by my heart and not my skin colour

With Love

Me before you review

If you’re like me and saw the trailer of this film months ago, you must have been excited as it stars the 2015 Esquire’s sexiest woman alive- Emilia Clarke. You might call her by her popular name from her character in the TV series game of thrones – Daenerys Targaryen (Mother of dragons) Image result for daenerys targaryen

and might have been intrigued by the fascinating shift from portraying this strong warrior queen – Khaleesi to this young laid back simple girl who sacrifices her youth to help out her family.

Image result for louisa clark

On the other hand is a man who has got it all – money, power, is good at almost everything and got a finance. suddenly that life is taken away from him when he is involved in a bike accident. this man known as William traynor ends up quadriplegic after the accident.

Quadriplegia – “one affected with paralysis of both arms and both legs”

From Merriam Webster dictionary

Two years have passed since the accident and Mr traynor wants to end his life but after his parents plead with him he gives them six months. His mother decides to hire someone to look after him. Emilia clarke who portrays Louisa clark in this film has just been laid off a bakery she has been working in for six years of her life. she goes to the job agency and is informed of the job to care for Will. she then after been dressed up in an outfit she considers a fashion sense of the 80’s by her mother heads to the trainers house. she is interviewed by Will’s mother and despite her display of no future endeavors is given the job and is introduced to Will. Will tries to scare her off by pretending to have impaired speech. Louisa however is interested in getting enough money to help her family and so endures Will’s cold attitude towards her. until…

Few weeks into the job Will’s ex-girlfriend and his best friend visit him informing him that they are getting married. after they left the outraged will pushes the picture he had of him and his ex. Louisa on hearing the noise of the picture breaking rushes and tries to mend them. later when Will sees this, he tells her that breaking them was not accidentally and tells her to mind her business. The frustrated Louisa informs him not to be so suck up and allow her do her job and that she is only here to get money to help out her family. shortly after that Will changes his character towards her, makes her watch a film with him and gets to know about her not so interesting life and her sports-man boyfriends whom he calls- running man. the story takes a different turn wen louIsa finds out she is on a suicide watch and Will is planing to end is life soon. she then tries everything to make sure is sees what he could be missing in life. she takes him to concerts, sport events trips, despite this Will’s mind was made up at this point Louisa found herself falling for will and her boyfriend who was there but wasn’t really concerned about her and talking all about running didn’t know much about her. they silt up when he found out she was accompanying Will on a trip.

at the end Will still went on with his plan but leaves Louisa a letter informing her to go the Paris, get a fancy perfume and enjoy life with the fortune he has willed to her.

so here i am thinking the story could have easily followed the predictable .. oh Will sees her love for him and decides to live; but the story makes us realise that these things happen. more so if not for the situation Will was in, their paths might have never crossed or even more he as Louisa pointed out would have been with the blondes and she in a corner serving drinks. Am i happy Will took his life?  No.. but for what its worth Louisa ends up living her life to the fullest.

Love and friendship review

A 2016 British film in an 18th century setting based on the novel ‘lady Susan’ by Jane Austen produced by Katie Holly and Lauranne Bourrachot

Kate Beckinsale as Lady Susan in love and Friendship

The  film was set at three locations Longford, Churchill and Edward street London. It starts with the words Langford, Langford if only it hadn’t being Langford how happy we might have being. In an amusing way, the various characters are introduced in more of a theatrical fashion starting from Lord Manwaring as a divinely attractive man.

I, however felt the film was more based on lady Susan more than any of the characters and the nice introduction was funny but not necessary. of course realising this was based on the novella by which the lead character was named after; it is expected that the film would surround her life. To put things simple the film revolved around three things basically; Continue reading “Love and friendship review”

Hello, My Name is Doris

It’s another film week and today I decided to review something slightly different, a romance movie called ‘Hello my name is Doris’ and it stars Sally Field as Doris. You probably remember Sally from the 90’s film Mrs Doubtfire where she acted along side with Robin Williams, May his soul rest in peace. Okay, its being over 20 years since i have seen Sally and her role here is different.

The film starts in the burial ceremony of Doris mother after which her brother and his wife recommends she gets her own house and move out of their mother’s place. However her sentiments makes her brother recommend a therapist. The distressed Doris returns to the house, feeds the cat and heads out to work, picking a random lamp on the way which, to be honest I have no idea why. She sees a couple while reading a book, moves away and continues her journey to work, encounters a guy with whom she is made to awkwardly stare at in the packed elevator. He starts talking to her  and complements her glasses. oh, did I mention Doris is an elderly lady probably in her sixties and this guy is probably thirty something. Doris picks a pen from his bag when he turned – big collector this Doris one . so apparently this guy- John  is later introduced as the new co-worker.  Meanwhile, Doris drifts away day-dreaming about having a moment with John. After a cardio session with her friend,  Doris goes off to hear a motivational speech. After which she talks to the motivational speaker telling him there is something she wants or rather someone but, it is impossible, he cuts her off giving her the affirmation to say ‘I am possible’  ….. and ends telling her ‘you are a green ball of glowing light and don’t let anybody tell you otherwise’. okay i must admit i liked his words we all need the little push once in a while.

Valentine

In the spirit of love, here is a poem titled valentine by John Fuller

 
The things about you I appreciate
May seem indelicate:
I’d like to find you in the shower
And chase the soap for half an hour.
I’d like to have you in my power
And see your eyes dilate.
I’d like to have your back to scour
And other parts to lubricate.
Sometimes I feel it is my fate
To chase you screaming up a tower
Or make you cower
By asking you to differentiate
Nietzsche from Schopenhauer.
I’d like successfully to guess your weight
And win you at a fête.
I’d like to offer you a flower.
I like the hair upon your shoulders,
Falling like water over boulders.
I like the shoulders too: they are essential.
Your collar-bones have great potential
(I’d like your particulars in folders
Marked Confidential).
I like your cheeks, I like your nose,
I like the way your lips disclose
The neat arrangement of your teeth
(Half above and half beneath)
In rows.
I like your eyes, I like their fringes.
The way they focus on me gives me twinges.
Your upper arms drive me berserk.
I like the way your elbows work.
On hinges …

I like your wrists, I like your glands,
I like the fingers on your hands.
I’d like to teach them how to count,
And certain things we might exchange,
Something familiar for something strange.
I’d like to give you just the right amount
And get some change.
I like it when you tilt your cheek up.
I like the way you not and hold a teacup.
I like your legs when you unwind them.
Even in trousers I don’t mind them.
I like each softly-moulded kneecap.
I like the little crease behind them.
I’d always know, without a recap,
Where to find them.
I like the sculpture of your ears.
I like the way your profile disappears
Whenever you decide to turn and face me.
I’d like to cross two hemispheres
And have you chase me.
I’d like to smuggle you across frontiers
Or sail with you at night into Tangiers.
I’d like you to embrace me.
I’d like to see you ironing your skirt
And cancelling other dates.
I’d like to button up your shirt.
I like the way your chest inflates.
I’d like to soothe you when you’re hurt
Or frightened senseless by invertebrates.
I’d like you even if you were malign
And had a yen for sudden homicide.
I’d let you put insecticide
Into my wine.
I’d even like you if you were Bride
Of Frankenstein
Or something ghoulish out of Mamoulian’s
Jekyll and Hyde.
I’d even like you as my Julian
Or Norwich or Cathleen ni Houlihan.
How melodramatic
If you were something muttering in attics
Like Mrs Rochester or a student of Boolean
Mathematics.
You are the end of self-abuse.
You are the eternal feminine.
I’d like to find a good excuse
To call on you and find you in.
I’d like to put my hand beneath your chin,
And see you grin.
I’d like to taste your Charlotte Russe,
I’d like to feel my lips upon your skin
I’d like to make you reproduce.
I’d like you in my confidence.
I’d like to be your second look.
I’d like to let you try the French Defence
And mate you with my rook.
I’d like to be your preference
And hence
I’d like to be around when you unhook.
I’d like to be your only audience,
The final name in your appointment book,
Your future tense.
