Innocence (Poem)

My body showed innocence,

I didn’t know,

My words showed innocence,

I didn’t know,

The bad boys gathered like flies because of my innocence.

 

The bad boys said the romantic words that I wanted to hear,

Their eyes showed the love that I wanted to see,

I was too innocent that I didn’t realize they knew what I wanted to hear,

I was too innocent that I didn’t realize they knew what I wanted to see,

They used my innocent dreams to hurt me with what I wanted to see and hear.

 

That hurt took away all my innocence,

I stopped being a child with innocence,

I became a woman without innocence,

A woman who doesn’t get fooled by a man anymore because I have no more innocence,

I see through a boy’s game and smile because I can’t be hurt by innocence.

 

No, I’m not saying that it’s bad to be innocent,

In fact, I admire those who hold on to their innocence,

I’m saying that you have to be careful of those bad boys when you’re innocent,

Some bad boys just want to destroy your innocence,

Yet remember that there’s a good man who’ll love you if you are or aren’t innocent.
