Not A Bridge
You built us a bench, And painted it red, Asked me what color, I shrugged as I said , It doesn’t matter, Carefully crafted, Made sure it looked good, I spent hours alone, While you worked the wood, Yet did not touch me, Your bench-pretty, new- Sits under your tree, Empty and unused, Abandoned by me, As I am by you, Too little, too late, To traverse the trench, Dividing us, since, A beautiful bench, Is still not a bridge.
Author's Notes:
I now own a red bench I would like to set on fire.

This is sad and I feel your anger.  It will pass with time.  Well written and I like they rhymes.  Please don't burn the bench, someday it will become an important memory.  a symbol of your life's path.
