Bridge after Coma

Bridge after Coma

A Poem by KeeD

Got this idea after reading Muse's poem "Walking Across Water"

I don't feel awake
The first step
It's the hardest
I am incapable of moving past it

Will you take me across
Disillusioned by decisions 
Fragile, I've broken myself 
Carrying my own cross

Hold my hand
I'm shaky and my legs give in
Understand, I'm not ready 
There's too much hurt within

Halfway there
I feel your strength run through me
The cloak of your embrace
I can taste serendipity in the air 

Is God aware
I'm drowning in my own despair 
Held tight by a mother's hold
Feels so warm yet she's so cold

Stay with me still
Only memories are here to stay
Was a time when you said you'd never go away
Then why am I alone

This is the bridge that's going to take us home
Why am I afraid that you're going to go alone
Another sleepless night 

Can you hear my cries 
Calling out your name
Building bridges just to numb the pain
I never want to forget your face

Is this my fate
To live on without you 
It was my fault 
he took you away

I'm not too late
Mama, I'm taking the bridge to you now
I'll see you as soon as all my blood pours out 
We'll be together, happy again

   Don't text and drive my friends

"Hold my hand?
I'm shaky and my legs give in
Understand I'm not ready

That one's my favorite. It's so versatile, and seems like something I would write.
The picture is really beautiful and seem endless.
Good job Kee. It was very well written. :3

Thank you Amanda :3 It does seem endless now that I look at it :D


Mothers are our angels on earth and in heaven. We cry out her name in hope or despair. One owes a mother so much, most of all the will to preserve ourself, body and soul, something for which a mother intercedes forever with God. A powerful write with beautifully crafted verses. Your words speak straight to the soul, Keegan.

TO SAY THIS PIECE is stirring, amazing, enlightening, just words....but words are the only vehicle to convey the true definition of emotion rendered from the reading. Tragedy ensues when warnings go unheeded, leaving us bereft in the aftermath of sorrow. You have captured the longing, indelibly...

A strong write. Excellent moving quality to it, a sadness within and a caring, cool pen upon this, nicely done.

Indeed no distractions such as to text when driving. The outcome is terrible to see accidents caused by this. Your poem here is very touching. Lovely music in your Author's Note as well.

So sad...and yet there is an uplifting sense about this as well. I find the fragility of this one quite mesmerizing. There really isn't a lot that I can say about this one, as I found it quite sublime and "lulling" to my current mood. Well done.

Hi I'm Keegan, most of you talented people on here know me as Kee. I'm 28 and work as a journalist. I write to release bottled feelings, so although it might not be very good, it is me. Thank you for .. more..
