The Bridge

Every day... The bridge
I drive across a fragile line
My sanity is tested
Will I come home today?
 
But she's been fine!
She's put on weight
She saw her friend just yesterday
Is that another poem dear?
 
Every hour... The bridge
Goddammit, it's you
Will you win this time?
Ugh, just let me lose...
 
Oh, but she isn't crazy
This medication is working wonders!
We'll up her dose some more
Pick up the prescription on Tuesday
 
Every minute... The bridge
I'm beginning to feel it
My adrenaline is kicking  
Will I see the Lord today?
 
We're by her side, she's alright
The doctors are treating her now
We nearly lost her, found her unconscious  
But now, she's okay...
 
Every second... The bridge  
That God forsaken bridge
I think I'm fucking okay
I will come home tonight
