I Knew I Loved You Before

I Knew I Loved You Before

A Poem by Elizabeth Moore

Lizzy Moore


For Mya


I Knew I Loved You Before


we read each other’s minds that time we tripped

acid and dressed up like Pocahontas and Alice

in Wonderland because hey why the f**k not


when even Pink Floyd hurt our ears

and the only thing that didn’t was the music

we made so I played Rachmaninoff on the piano


with the missing keys that we got from goodwill

and you got out a blank canvas and painted

the notes as if they’d taken form in the air


and by the end we were both in tears because

hey Prelude in C minor can do that to you

I said it reminded me of Anna Karenina and


Tolstoy but you said it was like a creaking bridge

and we spent the next twelve hours talking about god

and the universe, lying naked in the light of the moon
