Naked Innocence

Growing old is a must, Growing up is a choice. - Someone like that :-D

I remember a time when I could do anything my heart felt like doing. I could listen to a male or female friend sing to me a piece or two from our poetry book back in my younger years. I would smile, giggle, and enjoy their own rhythm version. I felt nothing but pure and innocent excitement.

I remember when a male friend would but his hands around my neck as we walk to the playing ground or to buy sweets or whatever caught our fancy, without thinking if I, him, or anyone would assume he, I, we is gay.

I remember being around female friends taking their bath and I think nothing of it, but just water splashing on flesh. No fear of been called a perv.

I remember telling my female friends how lovely their boobs, ass, or lips look without thinking of how well my dick can fit into their pussy. How they smile and say thank you with complete innocence. For they know I meant it with no hidden motive, and they won't think am a perv.

I remember believing everything I was told (still do until to a greater extent) without doubting the teller.

I remember my innocent year, where did all that essence go?

Now, I can't have a male kiss my cheeks without me thinking: I hope he's not gay. I hope he doesn't think am gay. I hope they don't think we're gay. I can't have a friend sing a song without thinking: is he gay?

Now, I can't have a female friend hold my hands, while we walk without me thinking: does this mean anything other than two friend strolling hand in hand.

Now, I can't have a female tell me how much they appreciate my friendship without me thinking: When are we going to get naked.

I am in a journey for the search of my lost innocence before I lost completely the true meaning of living.

...I miss innocence....

I miss having sleepovers with friends of the opposite sex without my parents having near-heart attacks, worrying about what we are doing.

mehn.... dis is all so well said....

where did d innocence go? its not even in so much as my innocence... (me, i'm still innocent oh! lol)

where is everyone elses???
I think innocence was taken to where the accusations of naivety came from...

I only lost some innocence, when i realized i was innocent b/c i was told countless times that i am naive.. does that make sense?

Such a sweet, innocent, and honest post. Like a kiss on the cheek from a child that makes us smile and long for the purer days of old.

Honestly, i don't believe innocence ever completely goes away..... Look at it this way....your innocence has been masked by your wisdom... you obviously can't walk with a male friend swinging arms in the street, not because you inherently think that there is anything wrong with it, but because societal wisdom dictates that you would look wierd doing that. And you haven't lost all your innocence... you still believe people are inherently good... if you didn't, you wouldn't believe what people say right off the bat, like you said you do.....

I miss my innocence, but i love my wisdom more....

Don't we all miss a little bit of that innocence. It is rather unfortunate the burden that comes with maturity. It shouldn't be so.

Life has a way of stripping us of all innocence, well maybe not all.

Someone said the reason babies have white eyeballs is because they haven't seen too many evils.

I wish there were no eye drops & cleaners available, at least that way we would be able to judge how much evil people have seen.

i miss talking to male friends without them thinking one has an ulterior motive or is in love with them.

i miss the days i crushed on people without first thinking whether they were mature or focused or any such thing. i just crushed because i crushed.

(Singing. At the top of my voice)

... Sing O my heart of days that will not come again;
... O sing a song of life that was so fair;
... While from afar, come voices easing all my pain;
... As sorrow flies, and memories drive away all fear.

*Dam! Hope you guys don't think I'm gay*

I miss hugging my guy friends without wondering they think I'm pressing my breast against them.
I miss lying on a guys laps without it seeming like my face is too close to his groin region (simulating fellatio).
I miss kissing my girls on the lips without it seeming lezbo.
I miss scratching my nyash in public like a little innocent child without someone thinking I have crabs/gonorhea/something nasty.
I miss being a child without responsibilities.
I miss running around my house naked...without being told to go put clothes on "..You're no longer a child".
Damn ....I really miss innocence!
