A curious case of…innocence?

They say the journey from childhood to youth

is the gradual loss of innocence

was she ever?

I do not remember…

seeing her lost in this theoretical purity

with that welded heart of hers

broken first by life

Much like Benjamin she was to be born, old

but not by her body, just in her buttoned plight,

yet not so much in her wisdom …

hence a pardon for her mistakes?

So maybe only in this manner

could I concur,

that indeed she was once,

in some twisted way … at first a child.
