BURNING BRIDGES:

This is from my latest book
"Stand beside me Danny Boy:
all poem titles is a song title of Daniel's
BURNING BRIDGES:
Too  much water has flowed beneath the bridge,
To put many wrongs right.
I should have seen it coming sooner,
I should have seen the light.
 
Too much water has flowed beneath the bridge,
It's caused havoc and a high flood.
Neither of us were happy with each other,
If I could have repaired the situation then I would.
 
Too much water has flowed beneath the bridge,
Who knows perhaps it was too much rain.
If only I could turn the clock back,
To not have suffered so much heartache and pain.
 
I'm burning bridges.
All memories and thoughts of you out of my life.
All I can saywith great satisfaction,
Is, I didn't become your wife.

    1. Thank you Martin, I didn't know such "Human Monsters " existed until I lived with the one I wrote about.

      You also have a good week-end.
