Bridge the gap

All we had
Was a gentle stream
Flowing between us

Strange how it compelled us
To arrive at the shore
Despite the marshy land
Despite the saw-edged pebbles

So one fine day,
You said let's build a bridge
I was apprehensive
So you built one on your own-

A rickety one; a flimsy one,
A rocky one; a shaky one

Perhaps to alter our inconvenience
But today I rack my brains thinking-

Was that your strength?
 Or, 
Was that your incapacity?

Maybe you "bridged" the gap
Quite literally.


~Poem 32

I fretted, but I made it too,
You didn't even step forward, and claimed you had the flu.
