Not A Bridge
You built us a bench, And painted it red, Asked me what color, I shrugged as I said , It doesn’t matter, Carefully crafted, Made sure it looked good, I spent hours alone, While you worked the wood, Yet did not touch me, Your bench-pretty, new- Sits under your tree, Empty and unused, Abandoned by me, As I am by you, Too little, too late, To traverse the trench, Dividing us, since, A beautiful bench, Is still not a bridge.
Author's Notes:
I now own a red bench I would like to set on fire.
