\"Imperfection is beauty; madness is genius.
and its better to be absolutely ridiculous
than absolutely boring.\"
-Marilyn Monroe

The rain cascades down
From the ebony storm clouds
As I weep for you,

Your lost innocence:
Gone like dandelion fluff

In the winds of change.

This darkness won’t pass-
I won’t see light again, for
You- my sun- have gone.

The author's comments:
As we grow, so many things change. People we know become people we knew, everyone changes, and, more than anything, we see a great loss of innocence.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others, for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness, and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

This is so true, and well written. Thank you for sharing it!

Very nice! Thanks for submitting this to my haiku contest :)
