Poem: Oluwanitile by Ayodeji Louis

I found you
Long before, I found me
You are my salt but not my world
I hated you, I watched you
You fought for me
Then with me
I found you and you helped me
Like a budding flower
I fought my crease
I busted, I prevailed, I fought and I fell
I found you but you also found me
You found me, it’s scary but you know
You know me
You know it all but not enough
Enough to tame me
You know I like to hide
Hide from me
Oh my love! My sweet love
Happiness! Tons of it
Laughter, barrels and barrels
You are not my world
Interwoven, intricate
Intriguing, interesting
That’s our love!
