Why Love Hurts 

Now wey night don reach 
Where you from dey come 
Person wey get de property na winsh
You been dey die, no need to form.  
Now wey day don finish 
Ojuju and demon dem don dey comot
Bind and cast; abi wetin pastor preach? 
Hmmm… But dis fuck-up na ya fault. 
Now wey light no dey
No be who you fit see you suppose fight? 
When you suppose humble, try pray 
You, dey prove say mumu must escalate!

What Went Wrong?

I walked too fast
You refused to keep up
You stopped walking miles back
You have chosen a different route
You walk with another now.

I talk too much
You have stopped listening
I lost you a while back
You listen to others now.

You are ‘all knowing’
You always were ‘all that’
That is why you are all alone
