Ordeal by Innocence

The essence of innocence

was a memory long forgotten

wrought too soon

from a tender bosom

and trampled on the ground

Now the heart

and its matters

are a mere complication

for the eyes are cold

where souls are sold

with free and wilful abandon

blame

guilt

regret

and

penance

travel full circles

and caught in between

is a girl

or what’s left of her

tattered remains
