Bridge in Flames

Image via

Darkness has fallen
Wan moonlight glow
Landscape glistens
Fresh-fallen snow

A whiff of smoke
Invades my nose
I follow the scent
Unsure where it goes

The smell leads me
To a bridge afire
Oppressive heat
Makes me perspire

Through angry flames
I see you there
Piercing me with
A bitter glare

I peer into your
Fierce green irides
Your grim resolve
Brings me to my knees

Tears flow freely
As flames draw near
The blaze gives birth
To my deepest fear

Though we are through
I manage to see
The beauty within
This grim tragedy

What once was our bond
Has been sauted
I watch weakly
While you walk away

  6. I’ve read some of your poetry before, and you do very well at evoking a deep and melancholy reaction.
