Lies Under the Bridge

Lies Under the Bridge

A Poem by chocolate_addict

I told you a lie but I�m done.



I told you a lie

but I’m done.


Unmoving, you’re there.

Bound in shackles I wove.


Here you are, battle scared.

I look back, afraid.


Standing, you’re there.

Torn in forgiveness, I cried.


I drove you down

but I’m done.


I couldn’t have hurt you, I say.

Someone else, not me.


The one, who broke the tie.

It couldn’t have been me.


Stilled in silence, we’re here.

Meet me in the middle.


I knew you for then

but I’m done.


Chained to the beginning, you stand.

You look back, unchanged.


Break them.

Those binds of then.


Run for me.

Feel for me.


See you in the middle, there.

I meet you in the middle, here.


I cried for you then

but I’m done.


Trust me, the battle is over.

Here we are, looking there.


Walk with me, I plead.

We start and all is done.


Feel the chains come loose.

Watch the sun rise.


I broke you

but I’m done.


Pick up the pieces with me.

Our shattered souls.


Sewn with redemption, we are.

Moved with each other, changed.


Meet me in the middle here, my friend.

From here, we leave, chains behind us.


We lost each other

but we’re done.

Hi Chocolate Addict,

You have a gift for sure. I hope you continue to listen to your heart and maintain the level of independence and passion you show now, even at such a young age. You evoke emotion in your writing which is very difficult for many others to convey. I like the simpicity of the style but the deep meaning behind it. Great job! Can't wait to read more!

Oh non stop loveliness and magic..
I told a lie,and I am done,Unmoving you are there bound in my shackles
I see you are battle scared.and i look back so afraid,torn in forgiveness i cried
I broke you down and I am done,could never have hurt you,someone else
The one who broke the tie,never me,chained to the beginnings you stand
break them..I will meet you in the middle here,I cried for you then,but I am done
trust me battle is over,walk with me,I plead,feel the chains come loose ..
watch the sun rise again,pick the pieces of me with me,just shattered souls
moved with each other and changed,fro here we leave chains behind
lovely in everything,just perfect
lovely write..

Fun sized candy is a joke. What is so fun about less candy than a normal candy bar? I am a perfectionist. Writing began for me as a way to express feelings and unexplained desires for literature a.. more..
