Burning Bridges

Burning Bridges as you go 

didn’t turn around and see it glow 

didn’t care about those left behind

This time though you crossed the line.

 

It all comes back around

falling ashes don’t make a sound

can’t turn back now, too far gone

One day maybe you’ll see you were wrong

 

All the things left unsaid, undone

No turning back you wanted to run

Standing here can’t see through the flame 

Can’t reach out because it will maim

 

Burning Bridges as you go 

didn’t turn around to see the glow 

It all comes back around somehow

falling ashes don’t make a sound

  1. Beautiful poem. I hope you can start again, live your life in a positive and spiritual way. The past is the past. The future hasn’t happened yet. Now is all there really is, so make it good.
