Lets Burn a Bridge

Updated on January 9, 2014

Lets Burn a Bridge

I hate you
For infecting me
With your bitter
Heartless disease 

Disgust leads the way
Through the paranoia
That you've left me in

I brush away
The vomit
That you rained down
On me 
When i looked up 
to you

I gave it all
To take a fall
Just for you
To collect my pieces
And force them
Through a meat grinder

I hate myself 
For trusting you
Now its hard
To believe in anyone

There's no fairness
In the harshness 
Of the serrated edges
Of the bed of nails 
That you laid me in

I watch the rain
And look at the stains 
That remind me 
Of my life with you
So acrid 

Its come to this
Lets burn the bridge
I hate 
All of this hatred

      With the refrains of the song Burning bridges behind me. I'm game to put it all behind which bridge are we burning? The one over the River Kwai?
