You were like a perfume,
I knew you would fade away in thin air,
yet I was lured by your sweet fragrance.

You were like a rose,
I knew you would wound me with the thorns of unrequited love,
yet I was awed by the beautiful ideation of us.

You were the sun,
& I was the moon,
I knew we would never meet again,
yet I rose in love every night & waited for you.
