I saw her on the train ride home

She was sitting next to me

But we’re separated

By the aisle


Her legs were pale and her skirt short

And the sun shone down on them

Enticing me to think

Impure thoughts


Blonde hair fell around two blue eyes

That caught mine for a moment

When they were drawn lower

To her neck


She was a picture of heaven

And I wanted to enter

But I watched her leave me

At her stop


I did not talk to that girl

Because she could not be better

Than as I saw her then

And that night

    I’ve had sooo many train rides. You brought back a lot of memories. At one time, I wished to be that girl. I did have long blonde hair with hazel eyes. I was fit as a fiddle. I was too shy…

      Shyness wouldn’t come into it. She wasn’t a real girl. It’s the idea of the girl thats intriguing, actually speaking to her would ruin it.
