“All the innocence lost at one time”…

woman

~

She lived her life…
Without living at all…

Her senses numbed…
Always fearing the fall…

With no electricity…
And without excitement…

Walking on the safe side…
Of life’s hard pavement…

Until one day…
A switch was flicked…

Deep inside her head…
She became bewitched…

By the simple notion…
Time was running out…

She began to scream…
And began to shout…

Rebelling against…
All that she knew…

All that she’d learned…
All she had held true…

And took to the water…
Infested by sharks…

Where the Devil resides…
Firing his poisoned darts…

As she sleepwalked the day…
Only awakening at night…

Where the cover of darkness…
Blocked out the light…

Her morals blinded by…
A new found treasure…

Disguising the things…
Bringing new found pleasure…

That left her thirsting…
And lusting for more…

Now this was “living”…
Of that she was sure…

Now she lives life…
Never fearing the fall…

Her senses alive…
Not caring at all…

  1. I remember as a young teen seeing girls differently and they felt the same way about me. That change was magic, yet I fear that innocence lost the wrong ways. Expecting the worst and projecting the same. A self-fulfilling prophecy that steals discovery too young.

  2. It is good to wake up and look around and see what it really going on. I liked you venturing out in the poem, the ending though made me sad. If you are still not sure you are in the right place perhaps its time to venture out further?

  3. Awesome Poem and an out look on life I’ve recently woke’n up too, Life becomes that much more simple when you begin to enjoy it for what it is….. YOURS TO ENJOY and yours to live- All we have is Today!
