Burtle

The Great Divide

A great divide between us

A bridge beaten and battered

A love stronger than lust

A hope cracked and shattered

 

We look across the gap wide and deep

A gap so wide we can't see each other

The other person across scared, waiting

But a feeling of belonging, translating

 

How did this gap even get here?

Who made it so we can't feel one another

So that we can't love and hold 

Each other's lives we want to mold

 

A bridge we must cross together

A meeting in the middle, two souls

A fear of falling into the ether

A connection to fill in the holes

 

We begin our walk to the other side

The bridge swaying, creaking as we walk

People follow so we don't go alone

All of us looking for our own home

 

Then the bridge breaks and we all fall

Going down we scream and cry

As we fall we grasp at what we can

Hoping our lives are more than sand

 

A gasp of fear and pain

A hand in mine holding tight

A darkness my soul it will stain

A light made by love, creates flight
