Loss of Innocence

Wash over me and cleanse my skin,
you must scrub hard as it lays deep within,

I’ve absorbed all lies and treachery,
of downcast eyes and profanity,

no place I’ve left to run and hide,
as the shame and guilt tears away from inside,

I’ve all but been stripped of all that’s good,
only an empty shell in tatters was left behind,

so let your blood silently trickle,
like a river is flows sweetly from you now,
its colour a deep, deep red,

oh lonely child you have suffered dearly,
you must rest your weary head,
lay quietly now and dreams of past happy times will dance round in your head,

oh lonely child,
your soul is free now,
no more shall you have to dread.
