You were un-enchanting
 at first but

   soon
            you
                   grew
                            warmer

to me. Until, one day, I realised
you had fit into my heart, quietly,
like a puzzle piece. No great flood,
no fiery skies. And yet- all of a
sudden, I could not be away from
you.

I was waiting...

I will remain as ever.

I will grow from concrete,
I will drink acid rain,
and I will remain

and still bloom
