I can't tell you

I can't tell you that I think you're beautiful
... inside...

I can't tell you that I sometimes want to be vulnerable
...and put my hand in yours...

I can't tell you that I could loose myself in your voice
...You make me mad...
...You make me laugh...

I can't tell you that I sometimes see the picture you paint

I can't tell you that I like you
I can't tell you
I

...I'm almost tired of saying no...

Girl, you and I are on the same page. You took the words out of my mouth. Hopefully you'd soon find how(courage) to say the way you really feel, without thinking of the consequences.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Afrobabe: hey darlingggggggggggg

Nameless Poetical: nahhh… I won’t… this is one of those… ‘I would have… butttttt’ posts… I like him but I know he’s not what I need… (sometimes what I want… but not what I need)… so nah… I wrote that post in a ‘what if’ moment… it’ll never happen though. I have slight beef with you(and don’t even pretend you don’t know the reason why… DISSAPOINTER!!!)… I’ll call you

Butterfliesandstars: lol… cos I don’t want to have a relationship with him… it was just a run of the mill thought… I like him… not enough to take that leap though… omo mo wa very selective

Laspapi: you don’t even want to know… lol… actually maybe you do…

Imoted: Nah… it’s not courage I need… its not about consequences… you know when you just have a gut-feeling it won’t get past a certain level?… in my life I’ve learned to listen to my instincts… so even though every once in a long while… I get to thinking ‘what if’… I realize that theres an even bigger part of me saying ‘what if not’… so like Jill Scott said… ‘I decline’

Arewa: lmao… no no no… I’ll say yes to a new pair of shoes though… I want orange heels and a certain discontinued lipgloss(the BASTARDS!!! They should’ve told me in advance for me to stock up)… my darling I’ve missed you… I’ve been around oh… I have some fantastic news… I shall tell yall larerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I’m great…

Exschoolnerd my sweeet pineapple: lol… I’ve missed you oh… omo mo so any yes oh… nitoripe (oh God I’ve run out of Yoruba)… lol

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Set: my sweetheart and favourite fashionista… I’ve missed you as well… I’ve been so busy… but I’ll be less busy from Sunday… I’ll holla at you… hope you been good… its bloody cold out here(and getting chillier by the minute)… you HAVE to see my new hairstyle… its DIFFERENT!(I’m not sure I like it… but I wanna see what you think)
Catwalq: my darling baby… kilonpop?! How was your project? Madam intelligence… new development… I go yarn you am… Fantastic news(even though you don’t know what it is yet… abeg make some pounded yam on my behalf with egusi soup… none of that pasta parmigiana stuff oh!)
Allied: The reason for the no- I just don’t think it’ll go past a certain level and I’m not willing to wing it.

Zena: I’m not scared oh… just unwilling to take some kind chances… lol… no oh its not the Jehovah Witness oh… he’s cool though…

Aijay said...

I say "Yeeeessssssssssssssss baby" on behalf of Overwhelmed. Lol.

nameless.poetical. said...

ah! i kno wat d beef is sha...u didnt get d text? i really really REALLY couldnt make it...i kno i kno...just call when you can sha...i can explain it better over the phone...out of the public eye...seeing as im trying to keep as much of my business out of the public eye for...reasons...yeh..just call sha...or il call you ASAP. when i can shake off my bloody books...
in fact, imma call you just now sef...

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Uzo: lol… I won’t jare… some things are better left ‘not-yessed’… its difficult to explain cos most of my friends just think I’m coming up with excuses and reasons to say none(apparently most of them aren’t valid)… but you know when you just have a feeling that although something might be fun for a short while… it won’t be more than that… fun… for a short while… I mean one can never go into anything and exactly predict how things would go… but when you have a sort of bad feeling going into something… it might be a better idea not to pursue it… in spite of the other good feeling that might lie right beside it.

Adekunle Shobowale: lol… its not at all hard to say YES… but… everytime I feel like maybe saying it… something bigger tells me to say no. It’s tiring cos sometimes I actually see what he wants me to see… it’s just not clear enough for me to take the great leap.

Aloofa: mo scream nkoko… lol(my friends all tell me I speak ‘eke’ Yoruba)….please tell me that wrote as well as it did in my head.

Ide baby… nwanyioma: a little… but that too sha pass… I’m just thankful that I can resist oh…

Taureanminx: lol… hey my darling…. Where have you been? I’ve missed you oh… as you just carry fashi our side.. omo you will kill 2 goats to appease oh… as innnnnn

Aijay: lol… wa pe mbe… lmao… how you doing gorgeous?

Namelesspoetical: ehnnnnnnnnnnnn… youuuuuuuuuu… sorry jare on my way home yesterday my phone died… I will call you today… cos I’m not sure if I finished blasting you for your disappointment.. lol.. don’t mind me.. I’ve half forgiven you jare… all we need is some cranberry juice and alfredo pasta with my name on it… and I might possibly think of extending a hand of judicial forgiveness… lmao@trying to keep the business out of the public eye… I feel you on that one… omo u gotta keep writing metaphors on this bitch. I wanted to run a situation by you actually…

Zephi said...

Kiibaati said...

Almost?

Almost doesnt kill a bird.

Honeywell said...

I feel you completely... and if it is worth it, worth the risk, say yes.. If you are anything like me, your dignity and pride matters a lot...So if you think there is a good chance of getting what you want, go for IT... If not, retreat and go after something else......
