Bridges to Yesterday

When the sun goes down
we need a light
so we burn our bridges down.

And holding each other tight in fright
We know we cannot go back
because all our bridges are down

...the sun has gone down
but a full moon of love is rising
We will see our way forward

I won't look back if you won't
there is no turning back
Are you with me?

The bridge burning away to yesterday
Too hot to hang onto, ouch!
Let it go for today.

    The first word I want to say about this poem is the imagery....the sun has gone down
    but a full moon of love is rising
    We will see our way forward- - - - -have arrested attention.

    its simple but complex, could easily describe all our relations when to continue, when to go forward or when to retreat, all we can do is go forward, and live with experience. Some great stuff midnight. your voice is moonlight affair.

    letting go of bridges to yesterday sounds so easy but sometimes so difficult. Giving hope for tomorrow.

    Another great poem so seemingly simple but complex with layers of meaning to be read slowly and with care. 10/10 BB

    A great poem as always, but for it to mean you are leaving here, it is very sad.....and you will be missed by many.
    Why...I do not know....(the reason for your leaving, I mean..) but wherever you may go, hope you remember the many who have enjoyed your poems
    and comments, but it's so sad to say goodbye....Please give it another try?
    But I do wish you the very best with {{{hugs}}} my friend.
