Solape is crying, she said her lover is gone
Solape is weeping she said he came and took it all
She said she’s leaving the land of the living
Solape said she’ll marry but never love again

Solape is crying, she asked her lover to return
Solape is saying they shared an eternal bond
Solape says her empty womb won’t let her sleep
She said she gave her heart for him to keep

Solape’s heart is broken, she said it was real love
The elders have concluded, it was never love at all
Solape said her lover made her feel things in very many ways
The elders said; ‘lust is a spirit, it is transferable always

Solace married Kunle he was a pious man
Her mind often left Kunle and dreamt she was in her lover’s arms
Solace kept wishing that her lover would return
Kunle kept asking; ‘My God, what have I done’

Dear Illusion,

Do not assume that because I seem strong I am so
When cut I bleed red too
I have seen it, and blood is not cute
If you hate me, tell me, I’ll learn to deal
If you want me, tell me, I’ll take that too
Do not use me as predators do
Do not come here and trample on my heart
This life is a garden I have been tending to
I have nurtured it and protected it
The flower that blooms is the only one I have
Do not come to take it away
Do not thrill me and take me for a ride
Do not use me only to dispose of me like rags
If you do not need me and do not want me
Do not come close do not approach
I was fine before I stumbled upon you
I was alone, but never lonely
My secrets kept me company
My dreams kept me alive
Do not come here to take my life
Do not come here selling false hope
I was me before I met you
Please leave quickly if you intend to
So I can still be me when you are gone
