Burnin' Bridges

Burning bridges is

Playing with fire.

The stronger the bridge,

The harder they fall.

Choking on smoke,

Watching the bridges you built yourself,

Witnessing each break till they're broke

Broken, down each topple,


Never a chance to blink.

Breathless, air stripped from you lungs,

Dignity down the toilet,

Half a dozen bridges


Win some,

Lose some.

Either way your bridges are burning,

Ulcer, stomach churning.

How do you come up for air?

When there's no oxygen there!

And you sink in denial.

In the debris

Of what was all

A tragedy

In the making.
