I thought there was something magical about you,
The way you draped your petals around the soft finery of your stems,
Thorns to protect – from the ravages of eager revelers,
While your beauty lights up an uneven world.
Sometimes I bask in your limelight,
Often surrounding myself with your fragrance,
Someday, you will see my portion and my stumbles,
As I stay hidden in your quiet embrace.
And, what will you say to me,
When you have discovered that I wanted a little of you,
Not everything, but that permeating air of magic.
Perhaps, you will chide me for my fondness of you,
Suffocating emotions, you may call it.
But I will stay bold and reply with chaste innocence,
It is your magic that mesmerizes my whole being,
My senses have been attuned to your beauty,
I will do as my heart desires,
I will share your beauty with my hidden feelings.
