Bridges built carefully by both of us.
Each block forming its foundation lovingly laid out with laughter.
Bridges meant to connect you and I,
our bond intended to be unbreakable.
Bridges meant to last forever and ever.
A part of our never-ending roller coaster.
Bridges meant to get stronger with time
That’s how this story was supposed to go.
But the script was flipped and life never seems to go as planned.
Now we stand at opposite ends of our bridge as we stare down at the debris.
