Innocence

image
Thin cracked china
     falling helplessly . . .
          on the concrete floor
               a million pieces . . .

Precious silk
     torn
          shredded

Weapons firing
     piercing flesh
          relentless
Released from familiar fingers
     that once felt safe . . .

Arrows flying
     swords, two-edged
Knives bleeding
     at sorrows edge

A fragile soul
     stripped bare
Screaming loudly
     in silent pain

Frozen still in sadness

Hidden underneath
     this blanket
          of shame . . .
