“Ignorance is Bliss” by Ashleen McCullough

Ignorance is bliss,

how did we wind up like this?

I would rather not know

if it means you won’t go.

But knowledge is power

and baby I’m glowing.

Looking back now

I’m better off knowing.

You were fire,

you burnt me

even as you learnt me.

Consume me.

Exhume me.

Confuse me.

Excuse me if I don’t understand.

What I thought was a flaw

was actually a fault

and now I’m shaking apart.
