Soft Life Lining

A soft life lining
With gentle relief
Some hard core denial
Of what lies beyond resolution
Across a bridge that sighs
Over sharp regrets
Submerged by shallow waters
Held at different levels
Suspended by artifice
Where the natural inclination
Is to tumble and flow
In keeping with the surface
That breathes from ground to air
And to ground from air
Where hidden from immediate sight
Is cavernous tumult
Silently shrieking disbelief
At wilful ignorance
Staring without regard
Whilst parading virtuosity
In Palladian splendour
Where all can see
Its raised male crest
Bestride the gentle hillside
That yearns to fall and rumble
Across the bridge that sighs
