the bridge of ghosts

The Penang Bridge
The connecting of an island to the land
Save time on the destination
Increase costs of transportation

It is the bridge of the news
The place for the lost souls
The place where suicides fall
Into the water of no return

The bridge of ghosts
They wait there to take souls
Of the living souls in low fire
Believing living isn't worth the time

How many died jumping over the bridge?
Some were saved by the alert public
Many jumped too quickly and lost lives
A tragedy if only they share their misery

The bridge of ghosts
The bridge for the falling souls
With glare of lights and passing motorists
A wrong way to go a wrong way saying goodbye
