    I want to be the first whisper of the first breath I have ever taken
    The first thought of the first words I have ever spoken
    The first speckle of ink from the pen
    That wrote my first poem
    These moments are pure
    Pure like the first smiles
    Inspired by my mother’s beauty
    Pure like the first giggle
    Bursting into iridescent bubbles I joyously blew as a child
    As a child the sunshine sparkled on glitter rocks
    Warmed the concrete beneath my feet
    Grass blades velvet against my skin
    The breeze blowing against my cheek
    Pleasure was so pure then
    I want to feel this purity again
    Pure like the virgin child I once was
    That lay against clean white sheets at 15
    The sunshine and wind playing tag softly with the curtains
    Fresh and bright as the summer blue sky
    Innocent as the moment I looked into the eyes
    Of the first man I trusted with my body
    Pure as the chocolate smoothness of his skin against mine
    Fearless in the first act of love
    Committed so sweetly
    So completely trusting
    The purity of the moment so priceless
    So precious
    I want to remember the feeling of beautiful
    Without the scars and shame of my scarlet sins
    Hidden deep within my virgin heart
    Somewhere my spirit blows gaily in the wind
    Remembering the bliss of what it meant to be
    Pure
    Pure as the first stroke of rose petals beneath my fingers
    Pure as the first kiss in complete surrender
    Pure as the first taste of passion
    Pure as the sincerity of my love
    Long arrested beneath facades of this grown woman
    Woman-child lost somewhere in Time
    Desperately wanting to recapture
    The laughter and light that lingers
    Even in the midst of a dim and murky place
    Inside
    The yearning for that which is sweetest
    Never lost
    Just buried beneath layers of self denial
    Now I open new born eyes long closed
    Remembering what it was to be free
    Free to love
    Free to live
    Free to simply exist as myself
    I want to experience the loveliness of liberation again
    To dance between the raindrops
    Laughing as the sunshine sparkles in my eyes
    Unscathed by the passage of womanhood
    Untouched by the shattered realities of the world
    Unbroken by burdens on shoulders
    Unbridled by constraints of any kind
    Before I die I want to experience
    Once more the feeling of being
    Pure
