Misplaced Missive #171: Ignorance

171. Ignorance

Fallen from grace,
Lost faith,
Unforgiveable ignorance,
And inconvenient knowledge.

I can no longer think of either of us,
The same as when you had my trust,
	 as when I had my respect.
At times, I only wish to eject,
You wholly from my life.
Go back to before, to focus only on the holy,
	to before, when God was who I prayed to,
				who I expected to:
Save a wretch like me. 
				who I always wanted: 
To believe.

But you, like Him, seem present only on a whim.
I'm through with absent heroes and,
Misplaced worship of what's on the surface.
I miss when the words I heard from you
Carried more than just their own weight.
I can no longer stay up late to debate
Your strength and my weakness.

I can't forgive all you don't know.
Because when I needed to confess
Was an inconvenience. 
My life may be a mess.
But I no longer want either of your help
To clean it up. 

Fallen from grace,
Lost faith,
Unforgiveable ignorance,
And inconvenient knowledge.

    1. Thank you for reading =)
      All 215 of my ‘misplaced missives’ are actually older poems I wrote when I still lived in MD. Thankfully, a lot has changed since then =P ha I’m glad my emotions conveyed well though, this was super cathartic to write at the time.
