BROKEN VOWS OF LOVEAfter Adeshina Abiola Taiwo

After Adeshina Abiola Taiwo

Sebí won ní ìfé kìí té,kìí tì
Love that neither fade nor sour
Olòjúkòkòrò Àgbéké
If they say you could swallow your hefty words like a morsel of pounded yam, that ran into your mouth.
I wouldn’t believe.
Last night, I washed away
your stained affection on my body.

Àgbéké, Alábebelúbe
Sebí níse lóye kí o bu omi sùúrù mu
Kí yílà, yílo re ó máa ba já sá”sán
You shouldn’t have let this
go beyond the shore
which a barren woman lost her womb
to the stream of agony.

Alákorí mi,Àgbéké
Njé o bá sì jé kí n fi òrò kan tó o létí
{Let me whisper a word to your ear}
Can you let this simile that drips down,
Like blood from underneath your pant,
To crawl into an imagery of warning.
For your flexible bone not to get cut
Like the flesh of an animal in the bush yard.

Àgbéké, If these my poisonous words are too harsh,
For your mouth to swallow.
Dare not taste them, because they would be as tasteless as seven days sour stew to you.
