DEPRESSION ISLAND

I left my heritage n followed Walking in a water i couldnt see the depth I danced in the hungry ocean with my tender self stepping in each...it leads Laughing at my ignorance for even with its brim filled, its thirst for my naiveness was sharp I followed Weakily like the waves that pushed me into it...positioning my position Gradually from the shallow depths it took to my belly button awaitin me to press the reset button but no i kept on playin n playin with heavy pregnancy i wanted to give birth to curiousity Even with the tides that cried horror with a deafening hallowen voice Far away from the dangers the oceans ... it scared me I ignored Snoring out its coldness as i placed deaf ears to the cries it yelled Indeed it yelled For parents came running pickin their children one after the other....dnt ask me of mine For time wouldnt allow me to go in search maybe it depended on the bitterness i shared on them like lime....i proudly crossed the lines I crossed all the lines as rushingly i pulled n jumped harder to reach the destination The ocean laughed higher... yes i had a prey to quench another thirst...yet i slowed it down Something pierced my wrist A call of glory Maybe it was the heavens cryin me to go back so to retell my story....to return to myself but then the force in me blew the pain off and sang lullaby to distract my distractions...slowly i moved again Gettin closer to my destination...the oceans swallowed my belly attempting to get to my neck... The tides calmed down...cleaning their tears and yelling no more Ignoring my call and still gave one last try to get me out It came my side in a rush I still stood my ground giving myself to the greedy ocean who grabbed my neck nd positioned for my head Slowly in a push it was steady as my chin felt its teeth tethering....to my lips kissing its softness reminding me of moments that tore me Hmmm....my nose struggled for freedom but what can a messenger do when the master befriends his worst enemy... my eyes surrendered the fight The coldness came to my eyes making my tears invisible to the face of the world...my hair floated its divine looks for the last time as every piece of sanity touched my brain Sparking my sense n resurrecting my faith n emotions emotionally I left my heritage and followed Nooo...it cant take me i tried to struggle but its grip grabbed my spine and pulled me in deep...deeper...to the deepest... My tears disappeared with the ocean My screams drowned with the ocean My lips tried to get free but the ocean's tight kiss silenced it The tides spoke to the soul for a heart like mine is a drunkard... staggering around...heading to unhealthy pit of doom A room it placed my soul selling it for mints....piece by piece....it floated my divine grace Raping me off my truth Disvirgining my innocence and tieing down my ignorance I danced in the hungry ocean that was about to use me quench a thirst..... The light came Sweeping me off its grip in form of the tides Fighting a batte for an insignificant person like me I was washed off shore....drenched with the blood of my tears The tides kissed hope into me awakening the she in her But indeed a disvirgined girl has a story to tell This was what i saw on depression island...
