POEMS COURTESY OF BLOSSOM

My heads are above the cloud and I have all it takes to love you.
I have the best kind of love and happiness you deserve.
But… will the cloud accept us.

How do you want to tell the rain to bless us?
When your heart has been filled with guilt and hate.
How do we tell the sun, not to kill us?
I had love and all I want is the best
You deserve to be me.

I Walked through the darkness
In hope for light.
I have walked through the water,
praying to stay shallow
I passed through fire just for you.
wishing the best of me was you?

Make my heart as beautiful as the blue sea I walked through.
My face, shine more than the sun.
Make my heartburn.
Because all I desired was you.

You saw the best in me
When others saw the worst in me,
The world couldn’t behold me.
I was like trash,
Never knew I could be the best.
But my best isn’t enough without you.
