Bridges Not Walls

a poem by Christine Anne Shaw, UK

As twilight cast a shadow on his face,
a candle flame brought softness to his eyes.
I saw once more the man that I first new
and raised my glass to toast the future highs.
I smiled as I remembered our first kiss,
his loving arms that wrapped me in his spell.
The wish that time that night would just stand still
as sturdy walls built round me rocked and fell.
I found the strength I needed in his love.
I felt the freedom surge throughout my brain,
as I recalled the wonder that we shared
as he released me from my inner pain.

Yet after all these years what have I done?
rebuilt those bloody walls which I thought gone.
