Innocence

by ghostful

When I was small

No one explained to me

The trials and errors of love

And all its deformities

So when I reached my teenage years

I was burdened with this sense

That love was compassion

That love was full and unconditional

That it was fair and right

But by the time I reached eighteen

All I had seen

Was love dashed in hate

Tears thick like paint

And lies upon lies

Upon lies

Restlessly my younger self had yearned

For a love that was pure

And now

I've learnt that love is this

Tarnished thing

I am fearful of its soothing touch

It's misleading looks

But although my view on love now

Is very much misguided

And tainted with bitter memories

I hope that one day

I can learn to trust in love again
