The Girl on the Bottom of the Lake

The Girl on the Bottom of the Lake

A Poem by Lady Cardinal

Every night
You will see
I always walk
Down to the lake

Every time
I stand there and wait
And wait for her to come
The beautiful girl
On the bottom of the lake

Every night
I come home wet
Every time my father asks
"Son, what have you done?"

Every time
I always reply
"I lost her
My beautiful girl
But I will find her."

Every night
You will see
I always walk
Down to the lake

One night
When I was waiting
I heard a noise behind
It was the beautiful neighbor
I have always loved

She stood right next to me
And looked down at the lake
"I still not see a girl
On the bottom of the lake."

I replied
"I have lost her
My beautiful girl
But now I have found her."

She looked at me queer
As I pushed her in
I smiled sweetly
As she sank so slowly

I walked straight home
All soakin' wet
She had splashed
As the water filled her

Every night
You will see
I always walk
Down to the lake

I always watch
Every time
All the girls I ever loved
All the ones
That did not love me

Every night
My father asks
"Son, what have you done?"

I always smile
"I have lost her
My beautiful girl
But I will find her."

It is a thought that always haunts you.
It is a song that makes you happy.
Your beloved girl lived on the bottom of the lake until she was beyond your reach.
When she stood next to you were happy and soaked her wet in the water of the lake.
You were overwhelmed by reality when she really came to you.
Did you think anything like this?
I hope you will break silence and explain the poem clearly.

I think it is disturbingly beautiful.I don't know what to say.I thought it was her reflection till you threw her in the water and then.I am so disturbed.

Damn... that got creepy in a hurry. And I don't mean that in a bad way. It reminds me of Jeffrey Dahmer's trial- when asked why he killed his first victim, Dahmer replied "I didn't want him to leave".

You have a great sense of storytelling in your poetry:)
