Friendship gone awry

He said, She said

He said…
What became of us?
Where is the Angel
That caught my attention,
At the village square?

Where is the Oyinkansola
That used to funmilola?
That used to ignite the King in me!
Where is she?!

What didn’t I give you?
What havn’t I done to ensure
That you remain my Arewa?
Why did you decide to do this
To our marriage…to us?

She said…
You can’t blame for being so cold,
Insensitive and heartless.
I was the Olori that warmed your bed.

You were my Balogun
My Kekere ekun and my husbaƱd
Why did you let her come in between us?

    Why would you go after her when I refused you nothing?
    One look at her big breasts and you were stealing her number from my phone!
    Why, Oh tell me why….

    @Jollyone that was nice.

    Nice poem. Considering the tags, could have been better.

      Its a really nice poem, @Jaywriter. Although I think it’ll have to be longer to do justice to the tags. Good work @katarah.

    I planned it but I couldn’t go pass a certain limit on my phone. Anyways I’m planning to introduce another senario to this poem because like you guys said, its too condensed for a poem of this nature. Thanks @jollyone for the follow up
