All We Thought We Knew

Updated: Jun 1

A poem by P. G.


And so who are you then?

All I see is a skeleton high and alone in a bed.

Don't talk about no don't talk about it no don't talk talk talk

why is that all you do

talk and think and talk and think and think and think and think

and why can't we just lie


here

naked

in silence

in peace

for once

oh Christ


for once please

can we just

lie here

in peace

in silence

naked

as the day

we were born

together

when we met

so long ago

a twilight haze


some sort of summertime love

16, 17 maybe

a parking lot

broken promises

youth and snow

stuck there

in the grey

between purgatory and sadism

we've got a taste for each other's blood

mine is pouring from my jugular


I'm so sorry

can't you see that it

written in that cascading red

on a white confirmation dress


wispy thoughts

fragments of souls

foregone memories

shining

shining

shining in the light

from a softly setting sun

falling

falling

falling

away from sight

with all we thought we know.




- P. G.
