I wouldn’t have called myself innocent; no…I wasn’t
But my gullible guilt came from the blood
Of the same who had known and taken me
You shall not blame my tongue for speaking these words
But to the soul and body that has been defiled
They both could mean the same
…Ties and Lies!
Innocence recognizes me no more; not in my husband’s eyes
But how will it? When the ties that held the truth
No longer told the unlikeness between blood and tears.
