Ignorance was Bliss
by Holly H Dunne
Have you ever wished words could be unheard?
But their heavy echoes line your stomach, your head, your heart.
A thousand arms couldn’t push those words from my head
They creep around my eyes, forming a visor from which my world is now viewed
This new world tainted with truth seems so ugly
Filled with forbidden knowledge I wish I could unknow
The wisdom illgotten, lies inside me like a serpent,
Coiled and full of venom
Perversely provoking a sickening desire to know more
Details I can consume, then try to forever expel
This bulimia of the mind, that serpent, those echoes
Trap me and leave me to rot in my putrid paradox.
Author's Note: I was happier before I knew about her.
