    she took a trip
    on the ship of relations
    that her mother said she
    needed to look into before
    taking, said she couldn't
    even swim but the water
    in his eyes glistened when
    he spoke to her so off she
    went

    leaving the dock she waved
    to an image of herself holding
    a key in it's hand / this key
    was to a closet where hung a rainjacket
    she kept in times when she needed to
    cry...she didn't need it
    HE was the one

    That day she left beautiful
    unblemished unfettered by
    unknown fears she had none
    regarding HIM...

    *TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK*

    the passage of time has her now
    looking back on the day she left
    the dock...leaving her friend her SELF
    behind holding a key she desperately
    needs now...

    She became an Indigo woman bruised
    singing the blues so uncertain
    of self she refuses to get off this
    cruise cause now there's four other
    mouths to feed while her mouth
    bleeds after being struck
    cause his manhood manual is dated
    "cro-magnon B.S"
    "before sense" and her mother words that
    "it wasn't common to everyone"
    reverberates in her head nightly
    as she dreams with her eyes open
    swallowing the moons rays
    cause her days don't exist
    cause days are synonymous to happiness
    not being in a daze of praying
    for loneliness cause his presence
    is an anti-hedonist existence...

    she reminisces of days where her
    mind ran free where she looked in
    pools and saw beauty that was she

    now she can't recognize herself

    But everyone still comments
    how beautiful she is not knowing
    she wears the mask
    of so many / so many would not see
    her nakedness...the waterfalls...
    that flood her insides that drowns
    her spirit causing her
    soul to turn indigo from lack of
    oxygen...

    *TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK*

    She stands on the stern tired/with
    bones the hue of nature's night backdrop
    with a rock in hand and a chain
    uniting it with her freedom...

    she tosses it...four children cry
    cause mommy died...not understanding that
    the smiles she had were reserved for them,
    and that her smile died a long time ago...

    before she became an Indigo Woman.

    honeyluv (what a name :) )- what do you wonder?

    UbZorbShun - It's many Indigo Women out there. My mother was one minus the ending.I'm blessed to still have her here with me.

    $$Rich$$ - The cool cat. thanx for the comp bro. when we get a chance you, me, and the rest of our poetic fam gone hook up and definitely vibe.

    GA - I try to be versatile. I'll let you in my head one day just beware there is a plethora of things flying around up there (bats, birds, love, dislike, etc. LMAO). But you my sis are entitled to know.

    To all of you THANK YOU once again.

    "...the road is long we will only get to the end if we keep walking. Never cease in the journey for happiness and truth"


    one love, Verb
