The saddest time in anyone person's life is when childhood's innocence is lost. Be it through drugs, sex, abuse, a divorce, or simply growing up. The lose can be subtle- the giving up of dolls and imaginary friends or it can be quick like the slice of a blade that leaves you breatheless. Childhood innocence is something that can never be regained once it is lost, but remains just out of reach like someone trying to catch fog, hold rain, or touch a rainbow. These feats can nevr be acomplished because, for some, what you wish to catch, hold or touch was never really there to begin with. And that's the saddest thing of all.
You can't touch what isn't there
