Bridges - Part II

Bridges: Part 2 of 5 — an original series by Charles Ellsworth Bergamo

...Four forces in the universe they say. Gravity, electromagnetism, et al. They search endlessly for the fifth. A so called weak-force. A force so slight, so weak, yet so pervasive. It holds all that is


It cannot be seen. No instruments may measure this long sought treasure.

A poke here, a jab there, a test, a hypothesis, all for naught. What cannot be defined should not be sought, it can only be felt. What is this force that keeps the universe intact?

It is love.

Without it...all disintegrates. Flesh falls off into the void. Until all there is, is a heart. Beating forever in search of a soul and flesh, to touch another before the last beat is lost. To be never heard again.

He sought her out. Spun her about. A laugh here. A kiss there. All so well. Who could tell? One day their hearts would shatter and split apart.

The universe spins about. All flees from each other to some unknown destiny. Logic finds no comfort in its bounds, for there are no bounds. No reason can ever discover the answer to all the whys and why nots. A universe held together by strings of love. Tenuous strings thought they be. Strings that snap, crackle, pop or strings that are plucked which then forever vibrate with a melodic tone.

What strings are there between Him and Her strings so strong that nothing can cleave them. Suddenly they snap. Only to seek each other out again. To touch. End to end. To wrap about each other in a dance of mating snakes. Shall they part? Or will they find each other’s heart?

Her heart. So large, yet so hidden. Moving this way and that to avoid contact. Suddenly it stops. A collision. Love revealed. He entered her heart. From there, straying throughout her body. From lips, to ears, to breast, to legs, to thighs. Stoking her desire, creating a rapture not yet known

To take up residence in the heart...oh, what a warmth. To be subjected to it's soothing, tender beat. While a man might normally fear of drowning to death, if the heart is where he could drown, he would passionately say yes.

A woman so pure, her kindness was akin to the care rendered the dying on the fields of Flanders. How was one to resist such a kindness? Her beauty, ah, the beauty that oozed from the pores.

The heart stopped. He began to choke. The tissue around him dying, contracted violently, squeezing, no crushing him. He screamed, it continued, he sobbed and gushed tears, it would not stop. What had brought this on, what could stop this from causing him any further harm? He did not understand, she did not know why. They could only cry.

She spun about and stalked away. Her heart in a million pieces, her body torn asunder. She wanted to know why? How could it have been so strong and now so gone? Damn him.

But such a love could only have come from above. A puff of breath while the Lord slept and swept down through the clouds and wrapped up these two lovers. They sucked in this wind divine, how could they know what God creates is meant to last for all time.

But they let Him down. Turned their solitary eyes to the ground and there they were afloat in a pool of water so deep. A million reflections, no time for corrections. Light glances all about. He sees her face, her eyes, her damnable eyes. Blue and so round. She sees him, her heart stops then goes, what she felt she did not really know.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
