And Yet

Work Text:

A girl; Magnolia.

Elegant and beautiful, like a flower

But far exceeding the beauty of her namesake

Her voice, a song

Her eyes, dazzling rubies—

...And yet.


My feelings remain unspoken,

my voice drowned out by her grace and charm

...How, Magnolia?

How can I tell you the very thing I swore to keep from you for so long?


It was all the work of a single flower

Acting like the seed of a budding affection

I was caught off guard

I didn’t mean for this to happen—

...And yet.


Falling in love with you,

It’s a blessing.

Far from being my biggest regret.
