Favorite Quote:
"Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final."

-Rainer Maria Rilke

I watched innocence
Escape the purest of pure
Desert her mind
Swindle her soul

I watched innocence
Abandon her shamelessly
Changing perspectives
Modifying love

I watched innocence
Leave with her happiness
Replace it with doubt
Confidence to poison

I watched innocence
As it ran away
Just as I did
Just as I shouldn't have
