a bridge

i had never met before

up ahead

easy on my eyes

common sense


not to cross

at any cost

bad judgement

on the other hand



to pay the toll

this one time

as i grew closer

it became less easy

a few steps on

then off

but one voice was louder

more persuasive

than the other

i walked to the middle

an ran the rest of the way

And? How was the crossing? Worth the effort?

Unless something is absolutely sublime, there will always be a but.

my guess is the bridge is/was a woman ...

and you didn't say which way you "ran" but again and sorry for the assumption but you would not have written this if you had not crossed the bridge , yes ?
