Jollof Rice: That’s What You Are To Me!

Like Jollof rice,

The sight of you calms the storms in my belly,

I see you and feel energized and no longer weary.

Like Jollof rice,

The scent of you is like a party for my nose,

I smell you and I start to write romantic prose.

Like Jollof rice,

The sound of your name makes me straighten my shoulders.

I hear your name and my heart falls over.

Like Jollof rice,

The touch of your skin can fertilize barren lands,

I feel your warm touch like a bowl of Jollof rice in my hands.

Like Jollof rice,

The taste of your kiss can end world wars,

I kiss you and I forget every word I had spoken before.

You have my heart.

You are my Jollof rice.
