Shattered Innocence

I was sheltered

You were sheltered

Life was simple

I no longer know simple

It

Has

Gone

Away

Forever

Away

Like a butterfly

Wings crushed against the wind

The symmetry gone

The beauty destroyed

We were once children

Innocence called our name

We wandered toward it

Just in reach

And then it

Shattered
