“Even in my old age, he reprimands me! Look at my face, do you think he doesn’t see the wrinkles when rebuking me? But we only have each other to love”

You’re smart until they get familiar
Everything else looks same
Same face
Unsettling weight
Even compliments fade

You’re the one who got familiar
Because I changed, I’m not always the same
PMS boobs now like the regular
Purchased another for when it’s period
But you… You got familiar

No more compliments, that I can deal with
But to compare me with her, dude, you’re tripping
Wait till we start talking less
Wait till you get familiar with her
Then you’ll know I didn’t get less smart
You got familiar

Did you miss me on Wednesday night? Tell me you did.

If I was your woman, on Thursday night, I’ll dance to an endless tune of pleasure, the pleasure you can only see in my moves. I’ll dance to indigenous beats that tell a story, a story of why I’m here moving for you and not for another. It’s the story that starts with ‘on that day’ and continues with ‘on this day’

On this day I confess my love to none other but you. You’ve been patient and never let your guard down, I respect you for that. I’ll never let you down. Swinging my hips carefully but swiftly like the Ga woman I am, accompanying each curve with the soothing sound of beads, yes, I know my heritage.

If I was your woman, on Tuesday, I’d have you give me some lessons in your exoertise; music, dance, health, sketches, lenses, teach me, Sir.

I’ll be away tonight, but I left you a video I compiled. It’s 30sec of every Wednesday  without you.

My loving is fragile but let it be reciprocated and it’s stronger than you’d ever define. My loving knows limits because I knew what you wanted from the day you asked me to be yours.

Tonight, we finally get to watch the movie with our names in it; remember, the main character bearing your last name and that lady bearing my first name? It’s still mysterious how we failed to copy it to my machine twice!

The keys, they came in handy tonight; ‘goat meat’ flavoured Jollof with countable colourful grains, watermelon juice, mango juice in case you’d want that too, lights went off but I got us some ice, powered your machine and mine in case yours goes off during our movie ;). I planned for this, because I know you’ll like it. I like it when you like it.

If I was your woman, tonight, you’ll have all of my attention, phone data will be off so there’s no distraction. After watching the movie, after we eat what I made for us, you’ll have one wish, and I’ll be your Genie tonight.

If I was your woman, on Sunday night, I’ll offer something you’ll like. It’s been a quiet day, I know. Just something to raise your adrenalin and make you smile till your ears hurt. You’ll like it, I know.

I’d love that I sit by you in church as we worship side by side. I’d love that we discuss scripture, and your wisdom, it’s impeccable. One thing I never told you, that impresses me is your reverence for Sunday naps after church; here I was thinking I’m alone in my kind of weird, but hey, that’s so darn impressive!

Later tonight, I’ll play you a sweet sound, a beat from me to you in appreciation of the one who made my heart beat for you. Tell me if you like it, and whichever way you’d want it, again.

If I was your woman, on Saturday night, I’ll make the meal of your choice and spoil you with a few sweets. FanYogo, you like that thing… I’ll give you that thing!

Tell me about your day. How was the engagement party in Accra? The wedding you couldn’t attend because of that engagement party? Tell me the bits that got you peeved, and the pretty things that got you smiling. I’ll smile with you, as I watch you talk, I enjoy watching you talk.

Nothing strenuous on a Saturday night, we’ve got 6 other nights in our favour. I see you’re exhausted already; your eyes are heavy and feet look a bit swollen. You’ve got some work to do too, I know, so I’ll just be here with you till those heavy charming eyes close.
