Naive

I am Naïve, let me count the ways:

I am Naïve because

I believed that the slate was clean – this time

when I knew it wasn’t, “it wouldn’t matter”

when it did, I thought mind could overcome heart

when it didn’t, denial seemed reasonable

when denial wasn’t strong enough, I believed I would be

when I wasn’t, I let hope color the lens

when the color was stripped away,

I saw light instead of void
