Ignorance Is Bliss

Poem By Rose Walker

As I said before,
Ignorance is bliss
For the young and the foolish
It used to be
Then I knew too much
I can't press the delete button
But if I could
I'd press it on my memory

It would be bliss
Not to remember anything
It would get rid of the joy and terror
Of the human life I hold so dear
I wouldn't know anyone
But who said they know me?
I would lose my secrets
The mountains of hurt people seem to enjoy laying on my shoulders

'It's not fair! ' They scream.
'Well neither are you! ' I scream back.
They are so frustrating
People with their whimsical ideas of stupidity
What makes life not fair?
An eye for an eye makes everyone honest
So deal with it in any way you choose
Because I'm not dealing with it for you

Ignorance is bliss
But I wish it was for me

This Lovely Flower Has Faded

She is a rose
Watching the tide come and go
In Winter she'll cry
Watching everyone as they die

I Miss Her

I miss her-
Let me rephrase that.
I miss the memory of her.
Her smile

My Fault

It was my fault
What I did to everyone
Even if most of them don't know

Toxic Goners

I am so tired
Of people ignoring me
Talking over me
Pretending I don't exist
