Bridge Poem by Glen Kappy


Rating: 4.9

from 'Dreams and Visions'
to Gloria

In a dream last night
we met again.

Our younger selves
we walked a bridge
we talked
we kissed.

Near the middle
was a barrier
of slanted stripes
white and orange.

We stopped
and you began
to blame yourself
for my leaving you.

A young fool
was sitting there
and began to comment
but I stopped him—
then woke up.

No, I would have told you.
It was me.
You gave all you could—
heart mind limbs and womb.
But I wasn't fit yet
for fidelity.

So I write this poem
a bridge to you
wherever you may be.
This my owning up
and my apology.
