"Innocence" - "No Longer Innocent" by riki
Comment:
The making of a cynic
I used to be an innocent girl
and believed in the good in people.
But now I know the truth
after I encountered you.

I'm no longer that foolish girl
who believes in true love.
Your deceptive tongue and empty promises
have taught me that so very long ago.

I'm no longer that guillible girl
who believes in every one of your lies.
Now I am wary of everyone I meet
and question their every moves.

For I'm no longer that innocent girl
because you took that away from me...
but then I was stupid enough
to let you into my life.

And I have regretted it every since.

Theme: Innocence
We are the same by Lovemagi

The sounds of the Sea
Gallow in her soul
That cold small body
So strong, yet fragile

Standing near the water
Thinking about the future
with occasionally
A glimpse of the past

The soft breeze
Going through her body
As a lone turtle in the field
independent, yet lonely

A little innocent animal by the water
Looking straight at her
She recognizes herself in the animal
Knowing they are both the same

We are strong, we are independent
We are the innocent being in this world
But that is exactly why
We are so breakable


Comment: It is been a while again that I actually wrote a poem. Honestly, I got plenty of deas but didn't find the time to make them and eventually I forgot about them and started to draw instead xddd. However this time, it is different! Anyway, whoever thought about this theme, good job. You gave me the inspiration to make this poem and finish it in my spare time that I had atm.

blissful innocence comes before the bite - by TSPanda - Innocence

there was a time
some time
you don't remember
but you were truly innocent

a child poking a cat
a kitten clawing at a ball of wool
a young couple sharing apples under the mid-summer sky

something we may bear witness to
but something we may never truly feel

because to know is to sin

"Innocence" - "An ageless innocence" by Asia Run

Innocence
Is the blind man
That walks by the side of his loyal dog
Trusting unconditionally

It’s the voice
Of the lonely singer
Whose voice only reaches
The walls of the bathroom

Perhaps, it’s the kid
Playing freely inside you
Reviving
The nostalgic old times

Or the light
Dwelling
Deep inside the tired eyes
Of those that consider themselves too mature to be innocent.

Innocence is a lie by Belserion

They say we're all born innocent
But that's a lie
Our first act is to bring pain
Bloodstained, screaming

For a while it's idyllic
There's joy in your guileless eyes
Long sunshine days
Warm, safe, protected

Then there's a knock
The barrier is about to break
The world has come to collect
On the debt you haven't paid

There's no such thing as innocence
You were simply being molded
To fit the empty space in the puzzle
Of the world that just keeps turning

"The epic innocent"

I used to love, I used to believe.
No ill feelings, No grudge or peeve.
Trusting blindly like a naive.

Tasted pain, Misery and deceive.
Tears are falling but i got my sleeve.
No more innocence i must change or leave.

Hurting them back that what i hope to achieve.
Don't judge me, I was as pure as Adam and Eve.
You think i'm corrupted?! Good grief!

Innocence - Heaven awaits by me.


Heed to the Styx, salvation is beyond,
You may loathe what fate decided to thou,
Yet Charon finds hilarious what lifes drags off.

Heaven or Hell, solely culprits or innocents may enter
Easiest for the innocent, like yes or not is the answer.
Hardest for the culprit, flip your coin, head - yes, tail - not.

Tail!? Who told you you were going to be asked?
Salvation is here, Charon pushes you at the big gate
It does not opens, guilty you are not.

Heed to the Styx, fate wonders your soul
Peter you will be seeing at the time of redemption
Because through life, fate did not took your innocent soul.

"Innocence" - "off-white" by Lord Maple

stained halls echo words of the capable
take it from i, do not heed to their lies
supposedly white walls built with cable
couldn't even last through small wear and try
words tell you not to say or hear one's affairs
you break from command, rebellious change
but painless as if it's kind stagnant air,
you stop, felt dismay, and stay within range
the threat of innocence that marred the grime
though they say, good riddance, they too, are impure
they too, have sinned, became wise, sculpted mimes,
holding highly, the sceptre of grandeur
prohibit yourself from the perceived
and you'll see, you have died in misery

Comments: Last time I made a poem was 8th grade, but hey, entering seems lit '-'
