I Am The Bridge

I Am The Bridge

A Poem by Crazy Cat Man
"

I'm tired of being the rebound guy which I help girls find their next real boyfriends while I'm just being used.

"
I feel like I am the bridge
To help my ex's find their next real boyfriends
I knew all along that I was the rebound guy
But I still wanted to give it a try
I was living in a lie
I knew all along
She didn't want to be with me long
She just wanted to be with someone
It could have been anyone
We make love all night
We cuddle and I'll feel alright
But there's something in her eyes
That doesn't seem right
There's someone else in her mind
I knew she was never meant to be mine
I'm holding her in my arms
And I'm thinking how much time
Do I have left
When she finally leaves
For a guy who is better than me
She doesn't want to feel guilty
So she want's to remain friends
I'm sorry but this is where it ends
I can't pretend
To not have feelings
I thought our love had meaning
I was used as a crutch
For her to get over her real love
Damn I had enough
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened
I feel like I am the bridge
For girls to cross over
To find a new lover
While I'm just a left over
I suffer
While another man bangs her
Oh well I shouldn't dwell on the past
I did my best
Even though I was the rebound
At least we had sex

I'm sorry, man. :/ Great poem, I can almost feel the simmering anger beneath the helplessness in your words. Nobody likes to be walked on and some are unluckier than others in the matters of the heart. I wish you peace and hope you find an awesome girl who won't use you as a bridge to someone else she wants.

Yes I admit this. but oh well. I move on
When she finally leaves
For a guy who is better than me

That part kind of pisses me off. Better than you? No. I don't think so. It takes a strong man to admit to being a rebound and spilling his feelings about it.

Even though I was the rebound
At least we had sex

I know that part isn't true. Must hurt to have sex and be left.

I admit that I have used guys to get over my ex, I'll be the first to openly admit that. But I always kept it short in case their feelings would grow. And they knew I wanted nothing from them.

Great poem Dan. Obviously evoked feelings in me so right on :P

Awesome poem. My poem "Shards" is similar in emotional feel. The girl that's about was using me to make her out of state boy friend jealous and I was smitten with her. I was devistated. I'm harder for it now

Wow...simply awesome - I completely relate- what a great metaphor you have created with the bridge - we all feel like this - fantastic poem!

I so understand and can relate to this poem, all I can say is it gets better. Perhaps knowing what your getting into makes it easier, but probably not.

A critique - I think you could have ended the poem here

I feel like I am the bridge
For girls to cross over

It just seems a better place to end it ,.. from a reading perspective. The rest of what you write is an afterthought and it taints the poem, to make it just be about sex, and not that you are this obviously amazing man that woman are not seeing as someone worth being with instead of the in between guy.

This seems popular in today's society.I liked how you protryed the emotion through your piece.Excellent work

This seems to be the theme in my life lately - I have been a rebound, the last one lasted 2 1/2 years, Why I held on I have no idea. But it put me out of commission for a good 3 years after that. I like to see this side of you. In this piece you did add a little of your sarcasm :), but at the same time, to see the pain coming across the page hurts and hits home. You have a wide range of writing and this is a new side of you and your emotions I have just opened the door to. I am glad you are sharing them.
"We make love all night
We cuddle and I'll feel alright
But there's something in her eyes
That doesn't seem right"
This is so painful and when you have this feeling it is like being punched in the stomach.. The anxiety, I can feel them in your words.
"She doesn't want to feel guilty
So she want's to remain friends
I'm sorry but this is where it ends
I can't pretend"
I think you are right in what you say here. To be friends with someone - just to put their mind at ease, or when you still have feelings, it is just to hard (or it has been in my experiences)
Thank you again for sharing. You will not be a bridge for long. For those who treat you as one, I know it's hard to think this way now - but it is their loss. And as hard as it is to do, we look into our own hearts and find our love out there somewhere - or I hope, I keep hoping :)
