    Innocence Lost

    Elegant noose and elegant wine,
    Checkered past leaves something to hide,
    Reflection of pain contaminates thoughts,
    Withered rose seeks heart to unlock,
    An innocent virgin, a human impaired,
    One could contest that nothing was spared,
    Shadows of dreams imitate death,
    Smile on her face long ago left,
    Sunset beckons an early demise,
    Rejection stares you dead in the eyes,
    Spiritual calling from far away places,
    Lonely nights verses warm embraces,
    Candles flicker as darkness retracts,
    Sliver of hope whispers intact,
    Fraction of what you once held firm,
    Lesson from life’s perpetual burn.

    Each event adds a dimension to the fullness you are. Permit it, allow it, become it for in that is wholeness. Life is just realness, some parts more depth, some more shallow, all of them together bring forth the beauty of soul. Somehow...

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
