Attack on Innocence

Attack on Innocence

A Poem by thinktodiscover

The beat of the drum is like my heart.

Thud, thud, thud,

thud, thud, thud.

Dance, dance, dance,

cry, scream, age,

hopes, dreams, rage.

Thud, thud, thud,

thud, thud, thud.

The jaguar hunts,

gleaming eyes filled with dangerous charm.

Claws dig into the mossy dirt,

pleasure overflows.

He crouches…

Thud, thud, thud.

Curious, hopeful, spirited,

young, naive, trusting.

Thud, thud, thud.

Why does every other animal fear the beautiful jaguar?

Come frolic with me new friend,

It’s a beautiful day for adventure!

Thud, thud, thud.

The beat of my heart goes

thud, thud, thud.

The surprised jaguar stops hiding.

Hesitantly at first, he approaches.

His nose recognizes the smell of innocence.

Friendship, trust, memories,

lies, deceit, schemes.

Thud, thud, thud.

Sparkling pure eyes.

Never leave my life jaguar,

I feel so safe and loved around you!

The beat of my heart goes

thud, thud, thud.

The time is now…

My sharp teeth effortlessly dig into the fawns flesh.

There is no struggle,

she has no time to understand.

The fawn tastes so satisfying,

the victory is mine.

Shock, disbelief, terror,

confusion, betrayal, wounds.

Thud, thud, thud,

thud, thud, thud.

I fight for my life,

The jaguar relentlessly continues.

I’m so weak!

Thud, thud, thud.

My mind doesn’t understand.

Thud, thud, thud.

The jaguar prepares for his final pounce,

Strength, please don’t abandon me!

Thud, thud, thud.

Realization, disbelief,  panic!

What have I done?

Loss, guilt, hopelessness.

My eyes widen as I gaze down at the bloody fawn,

the fragile young frame now limp and still.

Run, run, run!

Escape, destroy, forget!

Thud, thud, thud.

The fawns heart will never again go

thud, thud, thud.

My heart will never again go

thud, thud, thud.
