Blossomed and Bloomed
You were the blood pumping through my veins.
You were the reason I dreamed.
Your beauty is equivalent to that of a lion.
So fierce and strong
Yet gentle and loving
When I see you my heart skips a beat.
When you smile my stomach turns.
The talks we had made my knees buckle.
Your hugs gave me goosebumps.
Your laugh brightened my day.
The more we talked, the closer we became.
Two merging into one.
Soon a friendship budded.
As time passed a flower bloomed.
Its colors unknown to both our eyes.
Unbeknownst to our hearts.
A flower even stronger than the one before
Blossomed in the wake of our hearts.
With deeper hues and darker shades.
Alas, we ignored what most knew
As the blossoming flower of love.
And so the flower bloomed
Over and over in a room of darkness.
Only one could describe
If ignorance is bliss
Then I understand how the flower of our love survived.
When the time draws near
And we must end.
I will always remember the flowers
That bloomed in the shadows of our hearts.
