Mountain ManI come here every day.
I wrap up in my awesome felt blanket that looks like a volcano, and watch.
Two years ago I saw her. There. In the lake.
Every day I return in the hope that I may see her again.
My heart jumps with each lapping wave, but so far I've had no luck.
Two years ago I was standing here. Right here.
And she came to me, green hair flowing, pale skin glistening.
She wasn't a mermaid, she was the water. A Goddess from the depths, her beauty absolute, her breath as sweet as the breeze.
One beat of my heart and I was in love, but she left as quickly as she appeared.
I come here every day and look at the lake. Wrapped in my awesome felt blanket that looks like a volcano.
My heart bleeding. My love unrequited.
