BURNING BRIDGES

BURNING BRIDGES

A Poem by TheReal
"

One of my FAVORITE songs that I've written.

"
Time to chop down some trees and build some wooden bridges...
Maybe our season is coming to a close
I suppose I could dispose our experiences
Then I'm stuck building fences
Just to avoid intrusion, No allusion,
Before there is confusion
This is our conclusion and maybe we'll rebuild
But for now I'm gonna throw up my shield
Protect myself from bullets on loves battlefield

I'm burning bridges down; They burn without a sound;
The ash won't even rise.
With the smoke we'll blow away; It's sad to say...
I'm burning bridges over you

Our flower bloomed and I feel it about to perish
I lost all hope in this thing I used to cherish
I handled business, How did you lose interest?
I put my feeling into it, Never saw an end to it
We're losing every bit of it
Slipping through the cracks of our fingers
This emptiness, It lingers, It stings
I'm liberated by the pain that it brings
I'm leaping like an ember out of Winter into Spring

I'm burning bridges down; They burn without a sound;
The ash won't even rise.
With the smoke we'll blow away; It's sad to say...
I'm burning bridges over you

This is amazing. It would be a good song with a video to expand the thoughts and visions. Broken bridges need to be burn down. Can't repair all damage things with new wood. Thank you for sharing the excellent poem.

I could imagine the melody to this, and I seriously think you need to take a trip to the nearest recording studio asap! You already have great lyrics, so I'm telling you, this could seriously be made into a song.

If you wrote this really quickly then I'd have to say you have been touched by a muse of no small power. This is very well done. I could hear the music in the phrasing!
