Hi. Good day
How’re you doing today?
You look beautiful, as always
You’re sending my brain off the railways…..
So I guess this is a confession.. of some sort
Because it appears that your attention is something I’ve sought,
unsuccessfully though.. as shown by the fact that I’ve not said a single word to you
I love the gown by the way.. I feel it’s a perfect fit..
For you.. and your afro hair…
Okay I got distracted,
I guess anyone who thinks of you WILL get distracted
Back to the confession
The thing that’s causing me so much confusion
Okay, baby rhymes I know
But I’m sort of nervous just writing about this, you know?
I don’t know how you’ll take it.. though I’m hopeful
I like you
Like the way you look and the way you talk
The way u straighten the strands of your hair
Nerveless and effortless, yet captivating
I would really like to know you better
Though it’s hard when I can’t keep up simple WhatsApp banter
But it’s difficult to do that when you barely reply
It so turns out that this poem Is what I’ll rely
on…. And see if I can get to you…
What do you say?
