Loss of Innocence

Recommended Posts

I found this collecting dust in an old notebook. This stirred such great emotion inside me I felt like I should share it here.


Loss of Innocence

By: Jason R.

Written sometime in 1996


My demon is perched high upon my back

All these fears in my head till clarity I lack

I speak of things I pray you

Wow...that was powerful. Its well written and really got the point across. It made me really think for a few moments about what I was reading, which doesn't happen often.

Very nicely done.

I actually didn't realize this poem was about rape/molestation until about the third stanza. Prior to then I was thinking "No one can really take away someone's inner glow."' Then when I read that I began to consider things from a completely different angle. This is indeed a very evocative and thought-provoking piece. Certainly nothing can take away one's innocence more quickly and completely that the events described in this poem.
