Innocence Straying

To separate slowly from those I have known
To stay in peace whole, not needing to own
To keep my integrity isn't as pressing
This zone is playful and isn't arresting
Leave all the drama, the fighting, the pain
Choose instead harmony, docile* and plain.

Traveling new mediums strange and demure
Wetting my toe in this new domain's lure
How will my body feel once it's detached?
Bound to be better and more of a match
Staying available to those who seek
Paving the way with an aqueous peek
Into the way of the newest of brinks**.

-EVE Featherstone

*docile - Ready to accept control or instruction; submissive.*
**brinks (meant as brinkmanship in this context)
The art or practice of pursuing a dangerous policy to the limits of safety before stopping, typically in politics.
