Robbed of Innocence

I'm going through a time where I'm wondering at how cruel change is... it has taken one of my closest relationships and left me thinking it's better if I end it now... before it gets worse. *Hope you like it!

Emptiness is what I feel when I look at you,
not knowing what to believe.
I know in my heart what to do...
but I don't know what you seek to achieve.

You and I have changed greatly,
there is no innocence now,
and I'm only starting to see...
good job, Fate; go ahead, TAKE your bow!

I'm not sure who you are,
Is that horrible of me?
You have gone so far,
off to where one's eye cannot see.

Before me now is a great trouble,
I'm not sure if it's right to do...
and I know it'll leave you to break and tremble.
But this charade has gone too long between me and you.

You once were something impossible to live without,
but now all I can give is smiles and lies.
Honestly, I'm not sure what brought this about,
but I cannot go on lying before your eyes.

Change has caused a great consequence,
as it has done a very cruel thing,
robbing us of our very innocence...
exposing what we had into a simple fling.

So we are left holding onto a thin pole,
our future together bleak and hopeless,
leaving us holding onto shreds of our soul...
before we slowly recede into the darkness.



Tell me what you think(:

Maybe your friend is just as confused as you are, if not more. Sometimes life has its ups and downs, and personally i can tell you your friend is going through hell. Maybe you should stop pretending and just be yourself. Maybe thats causing part of the conflict...I know the times are tough, but its the tough that makes us stronger. Are you really going to give up Twinkie?

*sigh* Ali! I told you this was about my cousin! And maybe... and I'm not giving up... sometimes it's better to let go, and if it's meant to be yours, it'll come back.

Wow, i'm astonished as i read this, yet another poem that you wrote that explained a part of my life. Though i'm not sure exactly how you were robbed, but i was robbed, the guy a sought the hug from, i moved away from him to another town. I thought it was the end i thought there it is, the final blow and al my hopes are gone, i give up... But somehow, deep inside i didn't want to give up and people said i was naive but i kept hoping i kept faith. The rest you know^^ i got the hug :D Thanks for yet another amazing poem.
