How can I express the depth of what i feel for you in mere words?


I find it only appropriate to describe it as




Before a flower blooms 


The petals are tightly packed 


It is not yet ripe enough to expand 


But once it does bloom 


It is beautiful. 


It is vibrant, it is able to spread out, 


The petals. 


How I feel now


Is like when the flowers aren't ripe yet


They are still growing 


As my love for you is


But it has come to a hault. 




It feels as if a flower is trying to bloom from inside of me 


Aching to spread its beauty outward 


But it is unable to break out. 


I feel the strain of it wanting to break free from inside of me




I want to express my love for you, 


As petals long to bloom. 


But it is at a standstill. 




I want to experience this love blooming 


As gardners see the transformation 


Of their Lilies in the summer. 


But it is near ceasing.
