Words Out Of The Night - Poem by Adeosun Olamide

Do tell, do-
Of the one you married
Tell- she didn’t have sagged breast
That she was slender-
And you thought she- fragile,
I thought so- too-

I know, do tell me-
That I am not the one you loved
Do tell, do- of the one you loved
The one you loved never this,
This protruding belly-
Tell of her sharp eyes, bright and dark
Do, tell- look in my dull eyes, red and tell
Yes I know the one you loved-
She never snorted, she never
Until she gave herself to your arms

I know- the upset, I seen it
When you saw your angel defecate-
Do tell- that her face always brimmed
And even in your dreams of her coming awake
She brimmed always-

Tell; tell of her lips- red and full-
Do tell me, do-
But say not, never again-
You never loved me,
Just tell- scream if you want
Even when you are not drunk
Say this version of me is not your fancy
And no matter how much you scream it
I’ll always remember- the nights
Those nights you wouldn’t sleep
Until you have heard my voice
I’ll remember the nights you kissed my feet
I’ll remember as I understand
-That you loved a me’ -that is dead
But please never say- you never did
Don’t take the memory as have- the love
And don’t say’ I murdered the one you love
