FredPeyer

Innocence Lost

She appeared in my life

Like a dream

One day I was content

The next was hell

I wanted her

Had to have her

Could not live

Without her

 

My prayers were

Answered

As she came to me

The most beautiful

Woman I had ever seen

We made love

All night long

By morning she was

Gone

 

Taking with her

My innocence

My sanity

And my future

    What a very good write Fred, did she ever come back?

    • FredPeyer

      Thanks, Goldfinch! I think it is up to me since she only exists in my imagination. Have to think about it. Maybe I'll bring her back in the future.

      • FredPeyer

        Thanks mugsdaddy! I guess this was the first and last time!

      • orchidee

        A fine write Fred. I wish she (KP) would go from my life. No chance! lol.

        • FredPeyer

          thanks orchidee, but think, she might take your dignity, innocence, sanity, and future as well with her! Are you willing to give all that up?

            Orchi, divorce is a costly thing. You\'re gonna have to give up something.
            Great write Fred.

            Love the story within this poem!!

            • FredPeyer

              Thank you Shannon, there is always a story, isn't it. There is always meaning between the lines and it is up to the reader to use his/her imagination.

              Ah, the power of an alluring woman to destroy a good man. Well portrayed here, Fred! Good write.

              • FredPeyer

                Thanks Louis, how good that man was is debatable. He was ready for a one-night stand, throwing caution to the wind....

                Nice Fred , I think everyone could relate to this poem .....

                • FredPeyer

                  Thanks WL, I am sure a lot of us can. I left a lot to the imagination of the reader.

                  Love em and leave em. No future there.

                  Nice short lines, no need to dress it up with adjectives. My kind of poem.

                  Good one Fred!

                  Forever,
                  Lawless

                  • FredPeyer

                    Thanks so much Lawless! I do like short lines, but I also like to experiment around with different structures. Am not so good at the ones where I have to count syllables or words, etc.

                    • LAWLESS
