LOVE IS SHIT!
WRITTEN BY: SHEILA OCLOO
Can you imagine meeting someone for the first time and it feels like you have known them forever? You fall in love instantly. You try to do everything for this person over a period of years:
You paint this person on a portrait canvass
You sing for this person
You invite this person out for a dinner
You give this person chocolates
You hug this person
You tell this person, you love him/her.
You text this person
You pray for this person.
You wait patiently to hear from this person.
BUT all you get is SILENCE! Your only wish in this world is for this person to wriggle their last toe in approval. But you get NOTHING. All you feel is PAIN.
Pain from been BLOCKED on all social media handles,
Pain from hearing other people narrating your story in other versions
Pain for rejecting your portrait canvass
Pain from throwing away your chocolate
PAIN from been shouted at when you tried to call them to invite them out for dinner.
Dear reader, what did I do wrong?
If PAIN is all I get in exchange for expressing love, then LOVE must be SHIT and I don’t want
a part of it anymore. In fact, LOVE IS SHIT!
