Cobweb bridges

The days go by 
     and so do months,
          been so long now since I saw you last.

To listen to that voice
     my ears crave,
           but to pick up the phone and give you a call
                 I have a lot at stake.

With every falling star
      there is the same old wish,
            in hopes of it coming true
                   my days languish.

Making bridges with cobwebs
       burning them down at your convenience,
              you have done that a great deal
                     spurned my love with a hand of steel.

So, here I lay confined in my castle of tattered hope
        for the fading memories
                in the darkness I grope.

You have cast a spell on me
        for centuries I have stood here,
               waiting for thee.

Yet I continue to pray 
        for that ray of light,
              which will finally paint
                     my windows bright.

    Yes....I loved the structure to this poem....the rhymes were well done also. Here's hoping the darkness is dispelled.

    "Making bridges with cobwebs, burning them down at your convenience"...holy damn. A very intensified piece. Reach for that light, even with the acceptance & understanding that it may not be a mutual light. Strong piece! Great to see a new one from you!!! =D
