Kiss Me Through The Phone – ELISHA SEYITAN

I wonder what have become of the present day relationships

We no longer wait for those carefully beautifully written letters of our loved ones

They have been replaced with instant messaging

Those letters reflected true emotions

You do not need to speak in person as what is written resonates over and over again 

Our emotions have now been replaced with emojis

I am sure when an emoji of a black man crying is done it will have some racial connotations

Our parents could wait for those letters

As they reflected how long those relationships

Will last

You must surely mean a lot for anyone to put pen to paper back then

Now we are happy to get an instant reply

No wonder relationships don’t last long

As you cannot compare drafted words

Written on a sheet of paper

That takes four days to get to the receiver

I am sure when she receives such letter

She doesn’t need to be told to be kissed through the phone

She most definitely will kiss the letter

She will hug it jealously and put a frame on it
