i think of Prudence. how she flashes her teeth. how she weaves words like a basket. her beauty. her baritone voice – my phone rings, it’s another message from Quora digest, it reads; what is a black hole?
// a black hole is a space/volumes of space where gravity is extreme enough to prevent the escape of even the fastest-moving object. not even light can break free //
my crush is a black hole. i can’t escape or break free from.
anytime my kid sis asks for a painting of a beautiful lady. i will paint my crush. I will write a poem attached. not just a poem, but one that would mold a heart into shapes of love.
a mourning sound found its way into my airpods. it’s the voice of my neighbor. she’s praying. how can i send my request across? through signals? or morse codes?
another message again. it’s my crush. the black hole swallowing me.

Every month, we encourage writers to set reading targets. Draw up personal reading schedules and add more books to their "must-read" list. You know why?
Because a book is a friend. And we writers have so few friends because we are laid back and our energy levels don't just match with the ever-bustling world.
So, tell us, what books are you reading this December? If you need suggestions, send a DM. We will be glad to suggest some books to you 🙂🙂
Enjoy your December! ... See MoreSee Less
"...but sometimes, the sky breaks into dawn with the proclamation of
thunderclaps & gloomy downpours, instead of the gaiety of sunshine,
as if to say that it, too, is still learning the art of joyfulness."

Every line of these poems is embroidered with mesmerizing metaphors. The poet @AyooluwaOlasupo shares what we would like to call a personal documentary of her journey to healing. In all, her poetry is full of hope and promise. https://eboquills.com/2020/11/19/two-poems-by-nigerian-poet-ayooluwa-olasupo/
Mustapha Enesi's (@Enesi_Is_Fine) story, TRISHA is a sizzling short story. It makes a worthy read for the adventurous. So, if you love adventures, don't sleep on this one!
