Beware the innocent.
People often mistake innocence as beauty.
But be careful.
It's the innocent who will break your heart and tear your soul apart.
They don't know what a fragile thing the the heart is
and drop it till it falls to pieces.
The don't know how many seams you needed to keep your soul together
and they will tug and wrench at it till it bursts.
Beware the innocent
for they know neither pain nor despair or fight
and they'll never understand the darkness in your soul.
It's the sinners I trust.
The loners, the lost, the broken.
For they are just like me.
