Too much water under the bridge

A little confused is how I feel

The day is coming closer

It’s becoming real


When it’s over it’s completely done

No second chances

Only one


My brain is twisted

Feeling tangled

Emotions done

They’ve been mangled


The tables have turned

But it’s a little too late

We have to live

With this troubled fate


The house is no longer

A home

Soon we’ll be apart

Just On our own


Edging forward about to go over the ridge

Unfortunately this time

There’s just too much water under the bridge

      Don't worry Olivia, I was born confused and still am! :-)

        When troubles have mounted it is good and wholesome to be able to look to a better future where all are freed of mutual burden.

        • Olivia.

          It is indeed. X

            Keep at it. In this and your previous similarly well written poems, you've certainly got this experience covered nicely.
            Where to now?

            • Olivia.

              You are right I need to find some new inspiration, x

              As you go forward into your new life Olivia there will be good memories of those gone but there will be even better ones to come as you move forward.
