Thirteen Ways to Lose Your Innocence

(Note: This is part of a series I write from time to time. Here are the first three: Thirteen Ways to Handle Love or Repair a Broken Heart, Thirteen Ways to Forget Him or Her, and Thirteen Ways to Forget.)


  1. Follow the path until it bends. Then, step from it. Do not look back.
  2. Fall in love. Fall in lust. Mistake one for the other.
  3. Strike a match. Do not heed what, or whom, you set aflame.
  4. Fail to read the warnings signs, even the ones you wrote yourself.
  5.  Peek behind the curtain, find the person waiting there.
  6. Prick your finger on the spindle. Forget to feel the pain.
  7. Lie about where you’ve been. Lie too well.
  8. Regret everything, even the things you did not do.
  9. Stop asking questions. When answers are given anyway, don’t listen.
  10. Turn off the light. This applies to more than just bedrooms and smiles.
  11. Given credence to the bullies. Then, join them.
  12. Walk away. Do not hesitate.
  13. Make promises you do not intend to keep. Swear you never made them.

    I would say to *especially* regret the things you haven’t done. I’ve found those are the things that weigh heavier on my soul than the things I’ve actually done.

      Definitely, Andrea. That kind of regret is the worst.
