Chinelo - Poem by Oluwatosin Richard Shiba Aribo

Dear, don't you ever leave me alone,
Don't let even the thought cross your mind, for I'll dissolve like the morning
Mist, and the cruel arrow which searches for lonesome hearts will suddenly find me and pierce my heart.
And my heart will go flaccid, empty and dark'

My dear, don't you ever take your love away!
Don't allow even the thought come near your precinct!
Because jealousy which floats about looking for where to live will suddenly spot me, and grow in me as a wild breathing forest!
Crushing me! Crushing me! Crushing me!

Woman, don't you go far off from me,
Don't let your soft reticent feet wander away into the widening fields'
Because if I suddenly look, and you are not beside me, I'll roam miserably throughout the earth, bumping into people, road signs, street lights, civilisations, tribes... asking
Asking fleetingly!
Have you seen her?
Have you seen my beloved?
