Ephemeral Dream Girl


Poem Commentary

for every man who hesitated and saw her melt away

Ephemeral Dream Girl

she glows iridescent
the foam on the crest of the wave crashing down
swirling around her
iron green salt
skin glistening

soaking in the sunshine
a fine line becomes a wrinkle in her perfect features
she regards me with distaste and swims away
but the current isnt helping her escape
and she tumbles like a coin into a fountain

i shudder at the sight of her buttocks disappearing
the thong revealing every fold and mystery
leaving me wanting so much more
i cant help but stare and dream reluctantly
i wish for better things to say

my mouth is drier than the ocean
i pray for her to drown
so that i might rescue her
make her mine forever
i think in absolute terms

second chances are for the failures
im a petty juvenile
with illusions and grand confusions
all twisting and tossing inside my head
like wet laundry

my physique alone should be enough
to attract her sculpted, statuesque form
a figurine that
i would like to invade
conquer and possess

fall in love with and promenade
down the street of the town
where everyone knows my name
my interior fantasies building
as i pursue her with my eyes

the beach crowds fade to a buzzing irritation
shes so intense im salivating
im sure shes with someone else
someone better than I
but the shifting in my crotch doesn't lie

i sound like a rapist planning a vaginal heist
im just a lonely guy
with too much on my mind
wish she would turn around and notice me
just so i can savor every breath she is breathing

she reeks of money and of plenty
of week long vacations in the south of france
boyfriends with last names
that i couldnt possibly pronounce
like a toothless tiger im unequipped to pounce

she is a king's ransom of lust and flesh
i wouldnt know what to do if i had any success
my wandering thoughts progress
to some shared moment of oneness
with this amazing enchantress

i know for certain she will never be mine
my insecurity astounds me
as i ponder raptly
all my inadequacy suffocating and tightening
im nearly in shock from my lack of positivity

i just want to embrace her with my dazzling charms
the thought of her wanting to be in my arms
that alone is enough
to make me sick and depressed
shes just another diamond ill never get to polish

frantic and obsessed
my self-loathing is complete
i walk away from her and all that she could be
nothing but another
unfullfilled opportunity

YOu write so well. It is beautiful and I felt everything he felt. and I am not even a guy... YOu should enter this in something..your phraseology is mature yet not offensive I don't know why more people don't read this!

SavVySam commented on Ephemeral Dream Girl


You have an uncanny knack for turning a phrase that is amazing..and this piece about your wayward landlocked mermaid was a very entertaining read! Nicely done!



thank you savvy

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
