tainted innocence .

your broken innocence shone through you,

 

like the sun beaming,

 

belligerently tearing through the clouds

 

after an unwelcome thunderstorm. 

 

 

 

who were you?

 

before your purity was mutilated,

 

before your perception of this world was blemished,

 

before your,

 

every sense of protection and safety was stripped

 

out of your

  

young,

 

trembling,

 

damaged hands?

 

 

 

who are you now? 

 

do you even truly know?

 

have you been running your whole life?

 

just to find a home

 

to where you feel acceptance?

 

but,

 

you only continued to feel restless-

 

in every home,

 

you opened your arms to.

  

giving you no place to settle.

 

 

 

you make your past pain

 

so subtle.

 

yet,

 

you use it in such a way

 

that is so intelligent

 

and somehow pleasant?

 

with each experience

 

and story

 

you share,

 

we find the ones

 

we resonate with,

 

together.

 

 

 

And with that said,

 

you

 

and 

 

the stories-

 

you have shared,

 

provided the warmth and light 

 

i didn't know i needed. 

 

i was then,

 

able to grow again,

 

right beside you.
