Low Bridge

by Rania Moallem   Oct 30, 2018

I was carried away
with a flush of emotions.

Dark clouds tangled
the shy sun rays
as the horizon howled
with thunder
and stroke some grey
with some lightening.

I wiped my tears
to save this earth
from further floods
and went on...

It was hard to breathe.

As I combed my hair
glitter coated
the hills beneath.

Heavy. But I went on
until my heart roared
inside my chest.

I'm clenching to mountains,
holding on dreams,
high hopes, a coy smile
and timid beams.

I held the world on my shoulders;
the next bridge was low.

I stopped.

    Poems like this captivates me. Doesn’t tell much story, just emotionally descriptive that make you connect with the writer’s soul as if the reader is a paper and the writers, the pen. The emotion seems to pass on to a reader with great clarity that it feels like wearing the poet’s shoes. Smartly written and free of reader’s interpretation.
