Have you ever listened to someone play the cello ?
Or atleast attended an opera ?
I feel like you should read this with a British accent ,
Assume that we are both English and I wrote you a letter.
I am miles away now ,
On my way to South Africa because I have always wanted to visit KwaZulu Natal .
Fine , let’s drop the British accent mate.

To be honest ,
I have only seen a chello on TV ,
The only opera I have had is me singing in the bathroom.
Am sorry ,
I talk too much and we have just met ,
Am I still using the accent ?
Its just that ,
There is some languagasm (orgasm for language , no it’s not a word) in the accent .
I tend to get nervous every time am around new people.
But your different ,
My feet are cold ,
My heart it beating like drums in an Africa ritual celebration .

Lemmi start from the beginning ,
My name is Wangeci.
I love painting but all I do is stroke colour on a canvas ,
My favourite colour is sapphire blue
And am in love with you .
Bonkers! You’ll need to wipe that,
I didn’t meant to spill it on you .
Ooh! you like poetry ?
Well am bad at rhyming ,
But I enjoy wall climbing ,
My favourite number is nutella,
And I eat five alot .
Goodness !no way ?you have walked through the glass bridge in China ?
Isn’t that amazing ,
The closest I’ve been to China is speaking Mandarin.
I once stared at the sky too long I realised that maybe the oceans and seas are a reflection of all the water thats condensed above us .
My zodiac said I’ll meet you ,
Ooh no!I need to get home ,
Its almost my curfew ,
Did I tell you that I love you ?
Wasn’t this such an awkward first impression ?
Am still in love with you.
