There once was a girl

She was so innocent and true

There was nothing that she could not do

Until her innocence was lost

Her heart broken and betrayed… and what was the cost

Innocense lost is such a sad thing

A lifetime of fighting through shadows and pain

An aversion to sunlight

And a love for the rain

  1. Reminds me of something a friend told me. Told me I’m too nice, too optimistic, too innocent. And said I was at fault for it, but that they are jealous because that’s how they used to be, and how life took it from them.

    Sorry for a long comment, it is a beautiful poem and captures what we all go through, in our individual ways.
