Wild Hearts Aren’t Meant To Be Tamed

she has a wild heart,
a heart that is full of wander
burning with curiosity
and passion

she dreams of open roads
and fields of wild flowers
with the wind blowing in her hair
and the sun
lighting up her face

she wasn’t born with roots
that girl was born with wings

she has to fly
to leave
to wander
she goes with the wind

if you love a girl
with a wild heart
love her recklessly
but leave her wild
for she has more of the earth
to touch
to cover
to see
to love

she’s got a lot of leaving
left to do
she has more miles to go
under the soles of her feet

don’t try to change her
to make her stay
to cripple her wings
for she isn’t meant to be tamed
she isn’t meant to stay
in one place

let her be
let her live
and free
for the world needs
more wild hearts like
to be complete TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
