#frapalymo – Innocence Breaks

Innocence Breaks

Expectations like walls
Climbing into oblivion
No trail leading up
No compass pointing
The way through
Locked fortresses
Built up around wavering
Pressure mounts with each
Wrong move
Cracks forming along
Previously pristine surfaces
Pieces crumble down
Eventually leading to
The only choice
Staring through the abyss
That moment when innocence

#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog The Bee writes. Today’s prompt was “predetermined breaking point.”
