Teddy.15

London

 

I haven't found my Soulmate yet 

 

But when I do 

 

I'm going to shout about it

 

At the top of the nearest hill

 

Or on top of a big red Bus

 

On the Tube

 

I'll climb to the top of Nelson's Column?

 

Maybe I’ll sit on a Lion?

 

In my beloved Trafalgar Square 

 

Screaming at the top of my lungs 

 

In a red phone box

 

I don't care 

 

I'm going to shout 

 

Until my own voice is lost...

 

Lost in the very vision of finding him.

    I can see the noise abatement society coming after you. Running around shouting, Man, where are you.
    In saying that, I have a mate you'd like, totally nuts, but in a good way. lol

    • Teddy.15

      lol 🀣 ah but London is my soulmate. Thank you dear Paul, I'm missing home today. πŸ’–

        Missing old London town. A little bot of nostalgia. I'll pull down Nelson's column and send it to you.

          I blame the bloody Romans for all the mess.
          Lots of statues need to come down,apart from Nelson's column.

          • Teddy.15

            Thank you dear Neil, my poem today has nothing to do with the review you have left but thank you anyway. πŸ˜‚ Today I'm missing my birth place so much it hurts. πŸ’–

              No matter where we are in the world,our beginnings,no matter how humble,are always somewhere we long to get back to,over time.I lived and worked in London for many years,and had both good and bad memories.But now living in Warwickshire,there are times when I would like to go back sometimes,and retrace my steps.

              'cheer's, dear fellow Londoner
              to the woes
              we've learnt, to ignore
              in the name of our sanity's
              survival
              and that quintessential
              hustle and bustle
              that's seeped-in, too deep
              to the ebb-n-flow
              of our pulses, beat
              for us to ever, be rid
              of its pacing's, needs
              in our life's
              perspective's and feats...'
              (simply a Great read, dear Poetess
              thank you!)

                Thank you dear Mek, I'm using my poetic licence to dramatise my aches and pains lol 🀣 thank you dear friend.

                I love going to London. And I'm only a tourist. It must be hard to be away from home, so many memories for you. I hope you can go back for a visit soon Teddy.

                • Teddy.15

                  Thank you dear Rozina, I sure will, I didn't imagine COVID would have lasted so long. Of course one day I shall go home. πŸ’–

Sincerely sent with a tear of sadness for the tears of your sadness😒 But keep smiling,it makes people wonder what your up toπŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ’βœŒπŸ•Š

                        It ain't like what it used to be gal. Back in the seventies i loved the place.

                        So where you been lookin for this soulmate fellah? All the wrong places i expect. D'ya really think he'll be feeding the pigeons in 'falgah square.... you're avvin a girraffe. More likely he's on the circle line, people watchin and writing poetry.

                          Good evening Dusky, London is my Soulmate πŸ’– I know it's not what it was actually probably after an hour I will want to be back here, I guess it's because I cannot see it. πŸ’– Thank you darling friend. πŸ’–

                          What a beautiful imagery of the London state
                          The roads
                          The hustle bustle
                          And its tale
                          Soon you shall find your soulmate
                          But your a soulmate to me dear Teddy
                          My pen friend

                            I love its simplicity - sometimes it is good to just write your feelings straight. The last line is so powerful..

                            • Teddy.15

                              Dear Keith, Very nice to meet you, my writing is more or less almost always in this style I have always been told to write with my heart and today I'm so missing London. Thank you so much. I'm not a pro I write for a hobby, I really appreciate your lovely review. πŸ’–

                            • Goldfinch60

                              London is Ok but surely Italy is better.

                                Yes dear Andy, I live in the countryside so I am of course in a wonderful place, I miss being able to see my loved ones more than anything. Just a few now but still I miss them. πŸ’–
