The Bridge

Good afternoon, dear reader. Today our prompt was to write about a bridge. Initially I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with it, although I knew I wanted to cross a bridge. Finally I decided to write an Etheree, which is a poem that has 10 lines, with the syllables being 1, 2...all the way to 10. I hope you enjoy to poem, and I really hope I counted my syllables correctly.

prevent me
from being whole.
Yet the love you give
is the one bridge I seek
to carry me across this
gloomy morass which threatens me.
Your hand guides me to the only place
where love and passion exist without fail.


  1. I know this feeling well, thank you for putting it into words and doing it beautifully!

  2. It's the love makes makes us stronger to fight those demons. This is a new favourite, Rod!! :-) ~clap clap clap~
