Keeping the Faith

fresh and young,
unlearnt
and unspoilt;
knew
what I knew,
and didn’t have a care.

 
then illusion drowned me
in the stench of need:
to belong
to be loved.

 

 
left me lost,
and drifting alone
in a crowd of fools.

 

 
now,
blinded
by
the clarity of my love.
i know what i knew,
and so much more.
