“I will take over from here. So, there was this girl that came to church and next thing, it was as if I was sharing my man.

Sex Life: I Was Married 7 Years Before I Ever Had An Orgasm – Ope Adedeji

While the sex in itself wasn’t bad, I didn’t have orgasms.

A Body in Repose– Ibe Obasiota Ben

Every time I listen outside my window,
I think of the word reprieve.
I think of loss. Ennui. Formaldehyde.
I think of many words
That mean a war between skin and soul.
Mother says I must learn to adapt,
To shapeshift.
One only adapts to a thing that resembles home,
And adapting is really a fancy word
For losing parts of one’s self
To a thing they may never understand.
