London bridge

6.Poem:London Bridge
*if I was the London bridge,
Fallen under the weight of heavy emotions,
Lost to the sombre tones of depression.
Fallen to the hands of heartache...

*if I was the London bridge,
Then I am a bleeding plant,
An argea of a troubled soul,
A soliloquy of my torments..
How London has fallen...

* If I am the London bridge,
Crippled by the emotions of my heart,
Then sadness flows like a river in it,
My tears shall over run my bank of endless inquiry,
And my heart shall be pierced by the railings of the fallen London bridge.....
London bridge.
