We jumped off the bridge together
A union of hell-bent rebellion and naďve hope
It wasn’t until we hit the water that I realized
You weren’t holding my hand
You were the stone tied to my ankle
And you were sinking to the bottom fast
The heavy darkness pulling me under with you
From the bottom of that murky water
The surface seemed too far to swim
The sun’s light only a glimmer fading quickly
My lungs ached and my head pounded
My heart slowed and my eyes blurred
And I knew I had to let you go
Or drown and forever be tied to you
Just another stone among the stones in that riverbed
So with bleeding flesh and torn nails
I untied your knot
Leaving you far behind
While I swam toward the sun…
And still, every once and a while
I dream of a bridge
And a river stone
That’s waiting for the current to move it along…
