Bridge of Loneliness

“I’ve never been stood up – the only bonus of never going on a date.”

I wrote this poem for the following prompts.

Bridge of Loneliness

Would he come through the mist
Is she destined to dine alone
Their reservation time already missed
He had a lot to atone

Staring at the bridge outside
She prayed that he’d still arrive
And risk his dawdling backside
To rekindle love that used to thrive

He used to be a practitioner of love
But things had gone cockeyed
Still, she didn’t give him the shove
And longed to be his bride

Somewhere within the foggy city
He hid and made her cry
His absence was a pity
Now she had to give him a black eye

Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

Have a great day!

    1. Hello Susan.

      Nice to see you too. Life has its swings. I find myself spending all day in the barn creating planters, bird boxes and things with my dad. Its been real nice but takes my writing time away form the most part.

      Thanks for reading and I hope you’re well!
