she says 'li leve pati kite m'. Doesn't that mean "He or she left me", my question is, why use three verbs ALE PATI KITE, when one could've used just one (KITE, in my opinion)? So is this Creole sentence some type of Creole slang 'cause it doesn't make sense to me.

Leve, then pati, then kite sort of describe an action in sequence here.  True it just means that he/she left me, but try to look at it as a CREOLE sentence which makes perfect sense IN CREOLE.
