Burning Bridges

23 Sep

Wisps of smoke

spiraling skyward in tendrils

as the bridge slowly progresses

from slow burn to inferno

the hand holding the match

seems blissfully unaware

that once the blaze

becomes embers and ash

that you can never turn

and cross back over

it can possibly be rebuilt

but let’s be honest

it will never be the same

the past will always cast a shadow

and the smell of smoke will linger

long after the fires destruction
