    dotsPaper Bridgedots

    Perfumed and scared
    Of little green men,
    Unfelt wounds
    I wish to mend.
    Tell her the sky is safe
    Only with her by my side.
    She closes her eyes,
    Pain never subsides
    Without a little aid
    But I'm a paper bridge away.

    Deny and cry
    Let the tears fall
    It gives me an excuse
    To hold you.
    Tell me of misuse
    Pull all my strings.
    Let me fall for you
    And all it brings.
    Tell me what you miss
    Let me cure it with a kiss.
    I'll make the nightmares fade
    From a paper bridge away.

    Gentle, Mental steps
    I take off the ledge.
    I might seem forward
    But I'll steal and borrow
    To see you again
    Because someday
    I won't see tomorrow,
    But it's okay
    We still have today
    And I'm only
    A paper bridge away.

    Now, I'm running
    Across the frail crepe
    I think about your face
    Your tears soften the way
    I don't care if it breaks.
    Even if it falls apart
    I'll rebuild the bridge,
    It's the only way
    To your heart.

      I like your use of the metaphor of a paper bridge. A very fragle thing, but I also like that its easy to rebuild.
    Great write!! Thanks for sharing.

      I love your metaphors and your word use. This is one of those writings that really gets a person thinking, and I commend you for that.

    But the problem with rhyming is that you absolutely have to stay consistent and steady in your flow and rhyming scheme, or it starts to become difficult to read. While the reader struggles to make the words fit in rhythm, they get distracted from what's actually being said, and then they lose the point of ever reading the poem in the first place. The best advice I ever got (however insane it makes you sound should you be overheard) was to read my poems out loud to see if they sound as good outloud as they seem to in my head.

    But I really did like this piece.

    Keep writing.
