    The many colors
    of his ink
    Quenched my thirst each time
    I felt obliged to drink

    His red
    bled in my head
    I felt the stain of his pain
    and the internal tears that he shed

    His yellow
    gave a promise of a new day
    A sunrise, wise
    with hope and a prayer paving the way

    His green grew wild
    Sprouting ivy all over me
    Making me fertile and open to new growth
    not just decorative scenery

    His purple
    ranged from violet to indigo
    Soft and endearing, to fiery passion
    Oh how the spill from his quill would flow
    And with each and every brush stroke,
    he painted me a rainbow

    As the colors continue to drip upon me
    will I float in their fluidity, or will I sink?
    In the permanent patella of
    his versatile ink

    Sister coco, how you humble me, thank you for your kind comments and for bringing this flow back to the archives so to speak poetess. :)
    Some ink is meant to swim in, some... not. Now brother 1poet, here you are humbling me like sister coco.... Thank you so much. :)
    Wow, Rashad your comments are oh so kind, and I appreciate them. Thanks a million.
