Okay, so if the previous line exists and is not blank, then indent
the new line to the previous line after RET.

Yeah, I'm afraid you'll have to write your own indentation function.
Maybe this one?

(defun pe-indent-relative ()
  "Like `indent-relative' but don't indent after blank line."
  (when (save-excursion
          (and (zerop (forward-line -1))
               (not (looking-at "\s-*$"))))
    (indent-relative-maybe)))

(defun pe-text-setup ()
  (setq indent-line-function 'pe-indent-relative))

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'pe-text-setup)

Maybe it works, but I haven't tested it.

This line is not blank.
