If you listen hard enough at night, you can hear the earth's magic dying
Cupid, one of the angels, staggered about the dark Lagos street corners
Holding her bleeding chest, desperately trying to breathe
She found her way to watch her favorite family after dinner time
It was her only option to heal
The Adebayos shed light of love and happiness that always brightened her soul
Bernard loved Vickie through and through
through the difficulty of having their kids and cancer
At this time they would cuddle up in pairs to watch T.V
She smiled hopefully as she got close to the brown house on Opebi street
Something was wrong.
Mr Adebayo was pulling his wife by her hair
Junior was crying holding unto his mother's wrapper
Chidinma held the other children in the corner
He reeked of hours of drinking at the beer parlor down the street
Cupid bled out on their fence.
