My Love

The Sunflower That Grew

My Love

What if?

What if you're the one?

What if you're the one who makes me happy?

Turning my bad days into good

How am I supposed to live if one day you decide I'm not good enough?

I want to. I want to love but I always end up scaring myself until it's too late

I grew up with malice hearts

Years spent harping on forced intentions into hateful sounds

Lines my parents spewed to each other until the very end

They had so many waisted, resentful years fuiled with tears

So, I'm sorry I'm scared to love but it's much easier to be with myself cause my own intentions are the only ones I truly know

And darling, you sunflower, you deserve much more than what is given

With me you could never grow.
