AUGUST RUSH: My hubby almost killed me!

Strange title right? I know. It's actually a confession, I hope it helps you understand why I am the way I am. Let me start this from the very beginning.

So a few weeks ago, Mwene my Ugandan friend from the Afrobloggers community initiated the August Rush which was a way to wrap up the month of July and usher us into the month of August. The idea behind it was to review songs that we enjoyed, mostly from the past, and a good number of bloggers jumped on it.

Well, I happened to have read a post where a blogger shared her love for Jordan Sparks' No air and it sparked up something from my past. First, I would love you to take the time to go through the lyrics of the song.

No Air By Jordan Sparks feat. Chris Brown

Tell me how I'm supposed 2 breathe with no air?
If I should die before I wake
It's cause you took my breath away
Losing you is like living in a world with no air

I'm here alone didn't wanna leave
My heart won't move it's incomplete
If there was a way that I could make you understand

But how do you expect me to live alone with just me?
cause my world revolves around you it's so hard for me to breathe

Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

I walk, I ran, I jump, I flew
Right off the ground to float to you
WIth no gravity to hold me down for real

But somehow I'm still alive inside
You took my breathe but I survived
I don't how but I don't even care

[Hook: Jordin Sparks & Chris Brown]
So how do you expect me to live alone with just me?
cause my world revolves around you it's so hard for me to breathe

Tell me how I'm supposed 2 breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

Tell me how I'm supposed 2 breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

It's obviously a love song and you know me and love, I love love so much. It makes me behave like a smitten kitten. I loved this song like crazy. It was released in 2008 and made waves for a very long time. The love I had for this song made me use it on my phone as the ringtone for a special person in my life. My hubby and I were in our final year then and our friendship had moved to the next level if you know what I mean.

Anyway, whenever my phone rings with 'tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air', I knew he was the one calling and all the electrical appliances in my brain will charge up with high voltage that will eventually affect every other part of my body. I will take my phone and run to a corner where no one else could listen in on our conversation and we will be behaving anyhow.


I'm sure you get my point sha!

We went on holiday after the first semester and promised to keep in touch. Remember the lyrics of the song? Well, that's how this young man was making my head to be turnin' oniown to the point that I thought I could not breathe without him. After all, Jordan Sparks had made me believe that this young man was my air abi? Isalrit!

I waited for this man to buzz me after we left school for home and I didn't hear from him. Hmm, 24 hours turned to 72 hours, and then 1 week later nothing. No call, no text. Hian. I tried his number several times and it was not reachable!

My people, that was how I lost my breath! Who dey breathe? When there was no air. I started choking o, my airflow was restricted badly! My family members did not even know what I was going through at that time. (I am sure they will be hearing about this experience for the first time here, Lolz)

Long story short, I received sense one day after I considered the fact that my fellow human being would control my happiness this much. The next thing I did was delete his number from my phone immediately. After a while, I gradually started having peace of mind although it was not easy because a million and one thoughts were going on in my head.

My Anambra man reached out to me almost 2 weeks after to inform me that he had issues with his phone and was rendered incommunicado that period. Did I believe him? What do you think? I am not even sure I have forgiven him because I still delete his number from my phone once in a while when he upsets me. I told you that in 5 crazy things I have done.

So, my people, that was how I almost lost my life because of man! Thank God for sense.

Now, the moral lesson of this post is, don't let anyone control your happiness! The moment you give anyone that power, you may be doing yourself more harm than good. I hope this post made you smile. You know humor is one of my recipes.

Still available, DM 08037743106

I love you and I am rooting for you, never forget that!
