Checklist for Innocence

Crowned in bows
those cascading curls
and flirty skirts
delicate flowers
and a hint of shimmer
with a star around the neck
to reclaim happiness
from a time I am too strong for now.

Follow, follow, and
swish through the puddles;
snowy day scooters.

Don’t believe that a
bright-eyed floral will make
you pure and sugared.

is this innocence?

This unsettling,
feverish lightness.
Has the truth set me free
when all I ever wanted was to be
strong, and never show
the cruelty of my soul?
It it innocence in bloom that treats you to
cutthroat bluntness?
Not asking for sympathy, but understanding.
Though always afraid the former will win,
or the steel tongue will pierce again,
but not caring, lost in the lightness.
Is this innocence?

Where Am I?
