the lake

by Richard Trotter

I saw a shiny polished floor
And imagined it was a lake
By which I walked with her
On an eerie summers day.
In silence we strolled
under the yellow sky
Until I recalled, her indifference
and felt the dull ache of truth

I love the bittersweet, nostalgic feel of this. . .

Mmmm... I like this.. The minor fantasies of the romantic mind, but sadly broken by the intrusion of reality...

Timeless unrequited love. Romantic and beautifully written still.
