The final tear falls

The bridge burns fiercely

On a lifetime’s kindling

(Love has skipped town)

Connections compromised

Truths floating

Suspended in plain view

Charred possibilities

Still too close to the flames

A powerful ego dances madly

Extinguishing living potential

Smoke circles of options dissipate

White light and love attempting

To create new pathways

For momentary growth

The final tear falls

I turn, walking away

My own bridge beckoning me
