Poem by Eden S. Trinidad
Don’t Burn the Bridge
Electrifying kindness and adoration
Sweetness like coated almond chocolates
Mouthwatering blueberry cheesecakes,
Trust built on daily chats and video calls
Loyalty is as deep as dipped galvanized iron.
Clinging to each other like gecko
Never leaving like one’s own shadow,
At a hiss spitting venom of ugliness
Two pairs of slippers split in separate ways
Aristocrat eyes looking haughtily/ pretentiously.
Marred and tainted by old devil’s trick
Volcanic lava pouring immensely
Like a motorcycle without a break.
Electrocuted tongue causes convulsive rhetoric
Zorro and batman came alive with a kick.
Yet, don’t burn the bridge!
Dogs and cats are also fighting without end.
It’s raining while the sun is also shining
Red, when mix with green turns into orange
But fire sprinkle with oil is no heaven.
Century reached its peak
Destiny brings back sour grapes.
Unmoved, won’t settle, like oil and water
But light plain sheet steel when joint together
Would create an earthquake and hurricane proof house system.
