Save Me, Please? [MNTG]

"Love is like skydiving, with the parachute in the hands of the beloved" – Maze.
Don’t let me fall. I will crash land. I have nothing, no-one to hold on to. 
Save me, please.

Heavenly Father, I am nothing without this man. 
He has captured my heart, intricately and carefully woven his person into the shadows of my heartstrings. I have been mesmerized with him, or rather, the idea of him. He has left me with nothing but bits and pieces of my heart I am willing to love him with, still. He is everything I need. I cannot but feel this way. I cannot not feel this way.
Save me, please.

I have taken a deep plunge, a dive into the dimension called emotion and love, I know nothing of it. It's an alternate universe. I am hopelessly, hopelessly in love with you. You need to rescue me, please, I beg of you. Hurt has been my middle name, Walls having been my only comfort and warm blanket, sheltering me from cold nights, and holding me in place for my pillow of Loneliness as my tears fall night after night and wet it, even as I clutch my stuffed animal, Desolation close. 
Save me, please.

I need to get out of this body, switch souls, suppress and murder these feelings; reminiscing does me no good… you have to help me. I feel wretched, deserted, and all I can do is feel that way. 
I am hanging on to dear life as I poise on the precipice of nothings and everythings. You cannot leave me now. 
Save me, please.

You are my carotid artery. 
Do you not feel it; do you not feel this symphony we should have strum together, created as one?
I don't want to, but I do; it is inevitable. 
You've done this, now I'm undone. 
Finished me, now I'm incomplete.
Love is alien and cacophonous to me, filled with empty promises, champagne-colored velvet torn to shreds and burnt to ashes, in every instance. I belong to the world of empty beds, tearful cheeks and forced smiles. 
Save me, please.

Sound your timbrels just as surely; play a melodious tune, serenade my sorrows; trace my palms, entwine your fingers in mine and watch the meanders become one; make my dreams come alive. 
Save me, please.

Sometimes we have to lose who we are, or are hoping to be, to be with whom we love, to be who we are meant to be.
Michael Jackson lost his childhood for a greater cause:  stardom, world applause...he achieved all that and spent the greater part of his life trying to get his childhood back.
Victor, my best friend, lost his soul trying to get to the top... it was a 'Get rich or die trying' scheme.
David, that stranger I could have known, lost his adolescence after falling in love with an older woman, trying to mature for her... and lost her trying.
I have lost my heart trying to be with you; my smoke-and-mirrors person coming to light, my shadows being pierced by light. Light of your unrequited love.
Save me, please.

I don't know what I am, what I'm not, what I'm meant to be. I thought I did when I was beside you, and I was not wrong. You need to save me. You need to. I cannot lose you, just as certainly as I cannot lose me...
Assuage my demons. Put them to rest. Give me the heavens I see in your eyes. 
Save me, please?

As I lay down my head to sleep, I pray, my soul to keep… if I die
before I wake… well, you know the rest.

New Music : Move - Gabri ft. SkWeird

"MOVE" a beautiful song from the multi-talented, blow-your-mind-away artiste "GABRI" . When a fan was asked what do you think about Gabri's music her reply was " Oh My Gosh i like his voice, i like the way he flows and to think that someone as young as he is, is focused on having an impact on my life! I definitely know he is going to blow.

Stay Young Forever [MNTG]

- For Moyo 

Stay young forever, I don't want you to ever grow up...he said to me.
Be my baby, be my little sister, that's all I ever want you to be.
Love me forever, and no-one else, love for me in your eyes is all I want to see...
But I can't.

I can't love you alone, brother, for there must be another, beckoning to my heart.
My love for you will neither wane nor wither but I want a love 'til death do us part.
I have been broken, I have seen pain, seen anguish.
Oh, in despair, in limbo have I languished.
I have wallowed, waded and waited patiently for it; whatever it is, I don't know.
What I am certain of, however, is that my heart longs so.

Longs so very much, for that all consuming feeling.
Embedded in tenderness, in truth, sincerity, and security, tugging.
Tugging, firmly and surely on my heartstrings
Not a fairytale or fantasy, but the real thing.

I just want to love and be loved back.
Is that too much to ask?

So, no Brother, I can't stay young forever, even in mind.
Because a love that knows no bounds even of time I must find.

What Is With Celebs And Calling Out Ex's?

We were all living our somewhat peaceful lives when the news that Iyanya had dumped Yvonne Nelson for Tonto Dikeh broke. Apparently, Yvonne Nelson recently found out that Iyanya had been two-timing her with Tonto Dikeh. The hurt actress vented out her feelings through twitter; she tweeted that Iyanya had been acting throughout the relationship and she found the truth unbelievable.

We still have not forgotten the Rob Kardashian-Rita Ora debacle though, perhaps tweeting about your partner cheating on you or calling out your ex is the new in thing in celeb-ville? That's all that seems to be happening on those streets.

Our condolences to Yvonne Nelson, looks like all Iyanya wanted was her waist. o:)

The Little Red Dress.

The little red dress is a timeless piece that every woman should have. It has always been in fashion, but has been tweaked a little to follow the latest trends like the 3/4 length dress, lace, peplums, etc. The little red dress can be worn to any occasion depending on what you accessorize it with. It is a very bold statement and gets you easily noticed when you walk into a room. The little red dress makes every woman feel more confident and of course, beautiful.

Why Do Girls Cheat? Case Study - #RitaOra

The entertainment world was rocked yesterday when news broke that Rita Ora had cheated on Rob Kardashian with 20 men. Said news was broken by Rob himself via his twitter account, of course the tweets were deleted after sometime but the damage had been done. The twitter world didn't waste time with their accusations, judgements and silly trends (they trended 'Rita Whora'). We still don't know if Rob's accusations are totally true but we're quite certain there has to be an element of truth in them. Flashback to a few months ago, Twilight star Kristen Stewart was in a similar position with Rita. Hers was quite worse because she didn't only cheat with a married man, but there were photo evidences of the act. This brings us to the topic of discussion here on Rebel Flair today.. Why do girls cheat? I asked around earlier today and got these answers:

Why do girls cheat?

- Revenge or payback because he also cheated.

- Boredom. (I don't get this really)

- Insecurity.

-Emotionally neglect or feeling taken
for granted.

I'm personally gonna add GREED.

I don't get it though, at this age we girls don't have to be stuck in any relationship if we don't want to be. If you feel like you're not into whatever it is you have with the person you're dating then break up with him. Why do something you know will harm someone else's feelings?

Another issue relating to the Rita Ora scandal is why a girl cheating is a much bigger issue than a boy cheating, i bet if they switched sides and it was Rita that called Rob out on cheating with 20 girls it wouldn't be that much of an issue, infact Rob might have still have played the role of the victim at the end of the day.

So what do you guys think? Why do girls really cheat? Why is a girl cheating a bigger scandal than a boy cheating?

I think when it all boils down to it, a girl with real values will end a relationship if she doesn't feel satisfied in any way and not cheat.
