So much depends

SO MUCH DEPENDS...(Inspired by The Fault in Our Stars) So much depends upon the girl with red current meandering from her woman And the clots of clumped up thoughts that occasionally disturb her flow. So much depends on the wisdom from her oval shaped head And the greyish-pink lips How from her round belly an eruption of ‘woke’ perspectives Has to leave others with a need to be introspective “So much depends on this observer of the universe” Her views hanging from the sides like ovaries To provide boundaries So she can never be too sinful, too deceitful, too proud Too round, dark , round Sinful; Deceitful; Unkind So much depends on the girl in the African print caftan and a bandana on her short processed hair Fearful of oblivion Trembling before disappointment Stake in back while she too wields one against another Never too good, never too honest Her only decency in her merciful lies Her only fault is being faulted And that is before she takes a good look in the mirror So much depends on the girl with short manicured nails with transparent nail polish, Pecking away at the keyboard while hoping tears will flow Because all that’s at play within her is too inward Relentlessly refusing to flow out So much depends on her sockets to let out tears, the kind that fall naturally and heavily So much depends on her other half To explain the sudden outburst of betrayal, what is allegiance? But she knows not to poke those demons For they may wake up with renewed zeal Close a chapter while your hands still work Goodbye to that song that was the anthem in your special little earth, Heaven is your only haven Heaven is your only haven If only you show your worth. “So much depends on this observer of the universe.” Written on 25/12/15 after a very long, beautiful and blessful (poetic licence anyone) day.
