Bridge Burner

Burn bridge, burn.

I need you not.

Not now, not ever.

Burn like a shameless inferno.

 

You false promise.

You false hope.

Burn now.

Burn forever.

 

I need no bridge.

I am happy right here.

Here, on this poor island.

 

And if you reappear,

in a different guise,

in a different time,

I will burn that too.

 

I am a bridge burner.

I shun your hope,

your promise,

your glittering prize.

 

Burn now.

Burn forever.

I am happy right here.

Here, on this poor island.
