It was the idea of him

Formed in the clouds of romance:

His arms, strong enough

To row her boat,

Keep her afloat

On a symphony of shiny ripples.

She would be his diamond

Amongst the scattered jewels

In this glassy, watery place.

And then the clouds broke,

She fell out of the sky,

Tears sparkling on her face.
