Once upon a time...

I was just musing...

If you woulda just seen beyond
the stubborn set chin of mine...seen the quivering little girl...

If you woulda just heard beyond the nonchalant "what??"
I would say when you'd asked me if I was avoiding your ass...

If only you didn't always mistake the shrillness in my voice for humour…

If only you'd just looked beyond the rolling of my eyes
when you'd suggest we "go out...anywhere..."

If only you could see the beads of sweat that formed on me skin
whenever you touched my arm to get my attention...
when you'd unknowingly brushed against me…or touched my hair on  your way outta the office...

If only you could hear the flutter of my heart
Whenever you said my name exactly the way I taught you to...

If you woulda just seen that your "highly entertaining, and penetratingly insightful" me
was "utterly and completely" hooked on you…

If you'd known that it was pain I felt whenever your phone rang...at the same time everyday…and when, as always, you'd look at me…and I'd smile and say "ogbeni, go home" because I'd see the caller ID is all over your countenance...

Earth to me.

Your wife.



p.s....
This is mostly my imagination...laced with some of "my Facts" :D. :D

Uhm, definitely intriguing. But (consider me a bit slow), I dont understand that last part. Is the persona a co-worker as well as a wife? why is she saying "Ogbeni go home?"

Hey HoneyDame :D

ok. I don't consider you slow.

The persona is the co-worker. The wife is the caller. So the persona's calling herself back to earth from "Mount El stupido" and says "ogbeni go home" cos wifey's waiting :)

Thanks for reading and for your comment!
