Innocence

The world never understood
the depth of their connection
or the power of the love that healed
so much pain and loneliness
bringing order into chaos unrelieved
and light to the darkness of terror
that the minds of men created

Innocence
the wisdom of youth
to heal the pain of ages
contained
within two hearts so innocent

in secret, they would rendezvous
and share the mystery unfolding
as two became much more
than one alone could ever be

until they were discovered
and made to feel such shame and misery
that love so true should never know

and the sickness of the world
came between them

but never would they forget
the moments of completion
felt only when they were entwined
within each others arms
