innocence lost

in our infancy      
we wove daisy chain halos      
kissed with our dreams      
innocence ruled the day      
the nights spent chasing stars      
the dawn drew breath      
exhaling brand new supernovas        
the sun revolved around us      
we skipped sidewalks      
careful not to step on the cracks      
giggling madly at the moon      
we told scary stories      
the boogey man hiding in our closet      
today the halos we wear      
are heavy with regret      
our lungs choked with ash      
smoking anxiety away      
sleep puts out the day      
cracks in our sanity      
craters we can't avoid      
and our monsters      
don't stay hidden in the closet      
they lie next to us at night
