Naïve Eve

Naïve Eve

Blind to it couldn't see the difference.
Naive eve was so innocent.

Confident, sure of herself…
Fearless and assertive.

She has qualities of substance.
But, her Naive –Mind was
her down fall.

She was easily persuaded by false images…
had no clue what was happening.

She lost power over the situation without knowing.
Thought she was in control...

She was oblivious 
to the seriousness 
of the poisonous venom 
being injected into her system

Her eyes now blinded…She can’t see the realness.
So frightening is the meaning, underneath the surface.

She’s fighting now…Wishing
She could go back… Back to Innocence.  

I wrote this poem thinking of  "My first time". I felt a certain level of pressure from my partner and society that having sex made you a "WOMAN";....and if you are good at it, you'll  get a man to do anything. To often the images we see only perpetuate the notion that  in-order to be considered attractive, get or keep a man, you must be a lady in the streets and a freak in the bed or turn yourself into eye-candy that's so unrealistic one looks like an animated doll.
