Innocence

Innocence stolen without my permission
Innocence gone without my submission

Innocence lost through another's plan
Innocence no longer for another man

Innocence turned to hatred and fear
Innocence gone, no man can come near

Innocence taken from a little girls heart
Innocence replaced by mistrust, you thought you were smart

Innocence dissapears like dew in the sun
Innocence faded before it's begun

Innocence obscured like a cloud over the moon
Innocence ripped away too soon

OK, but spoiled by the spelling error (disappears is correct) , careful poets check their work. Rhymed poetry needs lines of the same length, so the fourth verse doesn`t work, and the repeated first word tires the reader. And you should write little girl`s heart, you need the genitive.
A simple but beautiful poem on innocence. When lost is very hard to regain. But life must go on. Good.
Well expressed, full of emotion.
Beautifully written Mandi this poem about the theft of physical innocence. The innocence of the soul though remains intact.
I am so excited to read this poem, Mandi, and how well you have explained the disappearance of innocence- Innocence disappears like dew in the sun. Thank you very much.10 out of 10.
