Indeed a Miracle

justlyimprint

I made beats out of the splattering rain.
I thought I’d see the air,
If I’ll never see you again.
Worse still;
This panting breath
Made my heart beat like a ceaseless drum.
I was sitting right here;
and a moment wrong there.
Saved by your touch,
I finally found in you a miracle.

LIVING IN NEVERLAND blog Affair (episode 2)

EXT. GARDEN – MORNING

HUGO has just finished typing on his laptop. He is about to

send when he gets a call.

He checks the caller – Anna.

He answers.

HUGO

(listens for a while)

Now?

(listens)

Okay. Coming.

Hugo closes his laptop and walks off.

EXT. NEVERLAND – DAY

ANNA sits quietly on the bench.

Hugo walks over to her.

ANNA

Three weeks.

HUGO

Yep. And now I finally have

something.

ANNA

That’s nothing. What happened?

HUGO

What do you mean by what happened?

ANNA

Why have you chosen to write about her?

HUGO

What wrong with writing about her?

ANNA

your follower…they have read and loved

everything you have written and posted every week for

two years now.have you… did you give them a thought

when you decided to write about her?

you are the guy who has written

about Asa and Nneka and Nse and

Leila and the Asian girl in Girls

in the Hood… now you chose to writes about a

controversial self proclaimed celebrity with a stripping past?

HUGO

Did you understand the angle I WROTE the piece from?

ANNA

the angle is stil no justification in my opinion.

HUGO

It won’t hurt anyone.

ANNA

JK wrote a book and that didn’t

hurt anyone.

HUGO

She made love to so many wizards

for so many nights. She too was a

bad girl.

(Anna stares at him for a while.)

ANNA

You can’t post it.

HUGO

(sighs, looks at Anna

emotionally)

I’ve been lost for a while. Her

blog helped me find myself. Let’s

forget about her stripping past and

focus on who she is now.

(pause)

I need this. I’m like Gil Pender.

I need to walk in the rain

sometimes.

Anna looks at him quietly for a while.

ANNA

What about your readers?

HUGO

I hope they understand.

ANNA

(pause)

you should Follow some of them esppecially the regular ones,

 Get personal and know what they’ll think about

it.

HUGO

I’ll do that, Anna.thank you.

Anna kisses him on the cheek.

ANNA

Be a good boy, Hugo. Anna cares.

Disavowed

justlyimprint

His vows he slayed,
Her vows relived.
Visions visibly dismembered;
Memories forcefully lumbered.
Like a bed unmade to be laid.
Disavowed gently, broken seal disengaged.
Sacrificed dreams both would wake;
As they veered their separate ways.
Whatever was left, would be raked.
Better and safer alone,
Part of his/her story foreclosed.

LIVING IN NEVER-LAND: Blog affair (episode 1)

 This is not poetry. It is drama. It is not a typical drama .

It  is an experimental piece, WRITTEN FOR FUN AND FOR LOVE OF WRITING.

I  do hope you enjoy it. I will surely like to know your thoughts. 

Amity and Jaywriterug will be taking turns to write the  few episodes. 

Thank you.

 

 

 

    INT. CLARE’S ROOM – MORNING

 It’s a rainy day . Kingston

 Clare sits on a couch with a mug of hot chocolate clutched

tightly in her palms.

 She stares as the rain drops makes pitter-patter on the

window.

 After a while, she turns her attention back to her blank

computer screen.  She refreshes it but still there was nothing new.

 

  CLARE (V.O.)

There has been no new post for about  three weeks now. It is unlike him.
(She stands up from the couch and moves towards the window, still

clutching her mug of chocolate.  She drifts to Neverland.)

 

 EXT. NEVERLAND – RAINY DAY  
JOHN

Why don’t you DM him on Twitter?

 

 CLARE

Hmmmm… No. I’m not that desperate. Moreover, he does not

  follow me.

 

JOHN (moves closer to her)

But you are desperate Clare! Look at you, you look as though your man

 has abandoned you for months. Get a grip and do what you do best.
 CLARE (without shifting her gaze from the falling rain)

What do I do best John, what do I do best?

 

  JOHN

You, Clare built neverland out of nothing!
 CLARE

That isn’t real!
JOHN

Is he real?
 CLARE (turns to face John)

Are you?
 JOHN  (looks away)

But I love you.
 CLARE

You don’t write.

 ( She turns her attention back to the rain.)

 

 JOHN

He stopped writing too. Can’t you  see?

( Clare moves back to the couch.)

 

  CLARE

He hasn’t.

(clicks on laptop screen)

 He must be busy… Or maybe… There must be an explanation for

 his absence.
JOHN (sits beside her)

 Do you think he notices you?

 

CLARE

 He does reply my comments.

 

 JOHN

 He does that with all his readers.

 

  CLARE (sighs)

 Are you going to help or not?
 JOHN

I love you Clare.

 

 CLARE

 I will tweet at him.

 

JOHN

I will wait. I am patient.

 

 CLARE

You can start a blog while you  wait.
SFX

Pale Blue Eyes plays in the Background

 

 JOHN (kisses her lightly on her forehead)

You will love me someday.

 ( He walks away.)

INT. Clare’s room.
Clare types briskly on her laptop, pauses to read through,

then clicks ‘enter’.

CLARE

Done.

(She is about to sign out when the notification icon flashes.

Quickly, she opens it.)

 

to be continued…

Simply lovely piece

justlyimprint

What I have is what I give,
But you wouldn’t give in.
I cleft with courage not to give it up.
It whispers, give it out.
I scattered the sunshine;
What I got back was more than mine.
