Was Innocence Taken

 

Was innocence taken

A bloom to wilt,

Is there reason enough

For this shameful guilt.

 

Is the flower no more

In beauty to bloom,

Is this feeling true

Of darkness and gloom.

 

Is there no more

A waiting rose,

Was it wrong

The way I chose.

 

Was innocence taken

Or given free,

Was it her

Or was it me.

very dark, almost a confessional, your poetry is very intimate, tense, in a cloying way, very dark...
