  • Innocence unravels...

    In upward blowing skirts
    In sideways flirty glances
    In hopeful words of praise
    In searching sweaty groping
    In random acts of romance
    In fantasy
    In dreams
    In books
    In movies
    In minds
    In hearts
    In spirits...

    It crumbles
    It caves
    It hotly melts away

    And then it's gone


    And ever
    And ever
    And ever...
