There are days where I feel upset with my body, my face, my heart. 

And days where I feel like a swan. 

But everyday, it never fails, that no matter if I am the swan or the ugly duckling, I always want to fly. 

Because wouldn't it be nice to soar above the sky and flap my wings so hard I lose a feather? 

I always want to fly back to you

My beautiful rose. 

You are the beauty I crave. 

The sun cannot light a candle the way your eyes can. 

However, your beauty does not stop outside. 

It seeps out from the inside. 

I love you more than the sky, clouds, and everthing in between. 

That's why it hurt so much when you made me think you didn't feel the same about me. 

My darling, 

You are the beauty I crave. 

Nothing else can satisfy 

The pit in my heart 

When you are not here. 

So i'll fly to you and if my wings someday break from other people denying me my love, i'll run to you. 

You are the beauty I crave.
