I KNEW YOU BEFORE

I knew you before header

 

I knew you before you were a victim,

before you were a wreck, a mess, and a bomb.

Without a crowning success or crippling failure.

Before you had an issue, an axe, or a cross.

No disorder, no syndrome, no label –

undiagnosed,

without a blemish or scar.

Before that night and the morning after,

before the after and before the before.

Before the fall, the crash, the crime,

without an upgrade or makeover.

Version 0.0

No story,

no narration, no closed captioning,

no footnotes and no bonus features,

before you remembered to forget and forgot to remember.

I knew you before you were what you say –

what you think, what you fear, what you know.

Did you know you before?
