Lost Innocence
I see my childhood caught in stone,
the aged-child within my bone.
Her eyes, I see them in black mass,
tinged pupils fleeting  from the past.
I see her sometimes on the street,
or late at night when I do sleep.
That day we all went to the park,
swings and noise and air that swept you up real high,
escaping worlds into the sky.
I didn’t know not even then,
that life would not be that again.
A story told, that always stayed,
of loss that never could replace,
the little girl that I had known.
The eyes, I see them in black mass,
the ones that say, they can’t go back,
to five years old, changed in a day,
to stone, clay innocence,
that flew away.
