Just thought I’d share a poem…

Soul Bridges

 

Life’s fires dot the mind’s rolling hillsides.

Shadow figures dance around and around

In the blood beat that echoes your darkness:

Moving in you is the sound of lost chances.

 

Somewhere there are deep sleeping memories—

Images ghosting quick before your eyes…

Fragrant nights of love and hands holding on…

A night when your soul was still so alive…

 

I can see the light in your cold distance.

Trembling in your dark coat of old sadness,

Your lantern burns low but still it dances—

And tonight I see that your soul still lives.

 

Paper dreams writhe deep in the shadowed black.

You hold onto them though the flames still eat…

Your scream is a holy prayer and a cry

To mark where your choices have passed you by…

 

Alone in your room, you just want to ask

Why it feels that life’s a massive attack.

But the darkness gathers it’s shadows round,

And you hear your own silence… as always.

 

Trembling in the dark, cloaked in your sadness,

I can see the light in your cold distance.

Your lantern still dances, but it burns low:

And tonight I see that your soul still lives.

 

Life’s fires dot the mind’s rolling hillsides.

Shadow figures dance around and around

In the blood beat that echoes your darkness:

Moving in you is the sound of lost chances.

 

You find yourself on the bridge that crosses

The river that spills out into the sea.

Your mind is full of your drowning voices—

Please don’t leave the bridge that links you to me…

 

I can see the light in our old distance.

Trembling in our dark coats of cold sadness,

Our lanterns burn low but still they dance:

And tonight I see that our souls still live…
