“A Bridge to Her”
 
He was desperately
trying to bridge
the gap
he felt
in his heart
looking for
something solid
he could grab
hold of
from her
personal
world
anything
to connect him
to her,
the degrees of
separation
didn’t matter to
him
just as long
as the trail
led back to
her
in some form,
he wanted her
to know
he thought about
her
cared about
what was happening
in her world
for some reason
this was important
to him
yet he has
never found
the right
words
to explain it
to himself
why,
he wraps up
his heart
in a simple
fantasy
one where
she leaves him
a note
hoping he’s well
misses his offbeat
conversation
her name signed
below
in a fluidity
of compassion
and thoughtfulness
the curves and
angles
of her letters
showing him
he mattered
to her
in at least
some small
way,
but he knew
the truth
no correspondence 
would be forth
coming from
her
nothing for him
to cross over on
no prop to use
so he could
pretend
he was a
few steps closer
to her
and oh how
badly
he wanted a
small piece of
something
from her
anything that
would let
him
close his eyes
and pretend,
she missed him
too…
