The End

The End


Waves by Mr Probz

I don’t want you to come close

I don’t even want you to talk

Because you’ll captivate me

Slowly find your way and start to consume me

My thoughts and dreams

Become one with you

My fears you’ll wash away like by a stream

With yours tongue white like a new sponge

I don’t want to fall for you

Because I know how this ends

So here

Take this bargain

Let’s just stay friends


Months have passed

Seasons have changed

Blocks are built

I have come of age

You’re still here

and now we talk everyday

Somehow in you

I now find inspiration in a new way

The future I see in you like a crystal ball

With you by my side

I manage to stand tall

With you

I found love


Somehow behind my dark skin I blush

The words that come from you

They lift me up

Being with you

Leaves me wanting more

Less of me

You and more

The way you look at me

You search my soul

The deepest of you

I really want to know

I’m in love with you now

That I know


I wish I knew

Just hold me close

And promise you’ll stay true


It’s now harder to get you talk

When you wanted me

All avenues of mine

You used to stalk

The growth has stopped

The love is there

But it’s not coming through anymore

More and more

I see you’re not here

I know where you are

But I feel so alone like in the start


You broke my heart

You scarred and tore me apart

Now I’m definitely back to the start

And I’m comparing the next person to you

Trying to build the next model like you

But it was you

That gave me tears

Made me cry and broke me in two

I don’t even know what is true

I ask myself

Who are you

And I question what is love


Your words used to adorn me

Now they annoy

I can’t imagine I fell for you

My insecurities I have to you

Pieces of me are littered around your home

But my throbs alone

Yet I am still drawn to you

I’m crying to him about you

As he smoothes my hair

I can feel myself feeling safe here

But I know exactly how this ends

I’m crying here because I was just here

Falling in love is the easiest part of an interaction/relationship. It can be with a job, work, school anything. In someone that understands and completes you, you slowly find yourself drifting away. You get lost in them and begin to align your dreams and goals.

There is a fear there though. Tangible and very real, people close that door because they do not want to experience what it feels to be heart broken.

Breakups are hard. For the most part and if you truly loved the person, it can be a rough time.

You question God, yourself, your choices. Self worth and self hate become a conversation. I’m here to tell you that it’s not always you.

My friend told me that

“no matter how much love you have, if you plant it in the wrong soil, it won’t grow. No matter what you do”

Point there is, no matter how great you are, if the person isn’t the right one for you or they are not ready, you will never feel like you’re enough.

Bad breakups or hurtful break ups like cheating, abuse or eating plantain when you weren’t supposed to can cause a lot of self blaming.

I just want you to know that

“The worst thing that can you do is to give up on you because of somebody else.” -B

Dust yourself off and get up. You are beautiful, you are strong. You are unique and heck, you are part of the #WhatTheHeckMan crew!

Some of you are out there in abusive, stagnant or non existent situations or relationships. If you know you deserve more, ask for it. If you don’t get it, then leave.

Break ups don’t have to only be for relationships. Sometimes you need to leave a friendship, job, environment. Self evaluate tonight and find where you need to make a change and do it soon. Before it gets worse.

Above all though, pray over everything.

Till next time.

Stay Up!

  1. Straight away I connected this to my work, trying to find my way on my next step and what path I want to take professionally. Above all I have prayed, I’m still not sure as yet but I know God will care for me as my hands will always do his work. This music!! Chai!! U dey kill me ooo!!! great work!!

  2. I like the way you did this , it’s like the stages of a relationship .. The friendship – dating/ falling in love – the problems – the breakup / aftermath . No point staying in any job / situation / friendship where your worth isn’t recognised . As much as it hurts to let go , got to know your worth and leave

  3. This is just a #Norubber nd #WhatTheHeckMan Collabo. Awesomes words and great connection with all the relationship we come across in life👏👌👍

  4. “eating plantain when you weren’t supposed” ? LMAO! Its amazing how you manage to bring plantain into almost every piece you write. But, is there ever a wrong time to eat plantain?

    Beautifully written as expected. Love the fact that you tied this not only to relationships, but also to jobs and general life situations.

    Topics on relationships, love, and heartbreak, are very interesting; everyone’s story is uniquely different. While some are afraid to fall in love for fear of heartbreak, others are afraid of being heartbroken or falling out of love for fear of being incomplete. But I imagine one thing stays true: the actual act of being in love, is a beautiful thing (again not just with someone, but with general life situations).

    1 John 4:18 came to mind while writing the latter part of this comment.


  5. Whoever said this is so smart “no matter how much love you have, if you plant it in the wrong soil, it won’t grow…” We all deserve to be happy in every relationship, stay connected, remain inspired. Definitely we need to know our worth, what we deserve and learn to let go when treated less than we deserve in whatever relationship.
    There is no wrong time to eat plantain 😏. Beautiful written as always 👏

  6. this piece is very relate-able. i find it really amazing how you manage to put the pieces altogether and reach us at a point where everyone understands. We all need to treat ourselves better regardless of our shortcomings. This I like! And the song too, really nice.

  7. It is very difficult to part ways. Most often when we consider how much we have invested. It feels like we have wasted so much time. I spent 2 years of my life day dreaming and hoping that things would change, I got the worst of treatments and all the while I advised others to quite similar relationships. I had to find courage to leave once and for all. I am happy everyday. It hurt initially but I have healed so well that I forget it ever happened.
