The Bridge

Post date: May 20, 2009 6:48:33 PM

I'm still

holding

my breath over

that bridge

drowning resistance

swallowing

shallows of those

longing waves

steel girders above

my vitals inflexible swell

though harsh gusts

and the rivers influence

I'm still

holding

my breath.

rush the damp

of my skin

I will emerge above

those cold waters

under the bridge

I can't seem to breathe

to fill these lungs

I'm still holding my breath.
