I wish I'd known. I wish I'd asked. I wish I hadn't been so completely ignorant.

Ignorance isn't Bliss

by burniingaschs

Blissfully ignorant. That's what I used to be.

What you don't know wont hurt you, and it certainly wont hurt me.

I wish I'd known better, I wish I'd only seen.

If my eyes had been open, If there was more then only me.

I would have seen his sadness,

I would have heard his screams. I could have heard his pleas for help, had I been listening.

I would have known about her fears,

The things that haunted her for years. I should have lent a listening ear. I didn't know, yet I was near.

Ignorance isn't bliss.

It isn't something that I wish. It left me empty, cold and alone. It left me wishing I'd only known.

Too Far
I didn't realize I'd gone too far.

The worst is when you're not necessarily ignorant, you're just choosing not to acknowledge what you very well know.
