I know your wild heart — running from city lights.
I’ve heard your howls, and I’m determined, I will
run beside you. I will trust your instinct to guide
us. When the chasing steals your sleep, when you
need my love to find your way, I’ll carry you home
I’ll hold you — though you bite and struggle, and
though my bleeding flesh burns with the fire you ignite
— I’ll lean into you, shoulder your body in spite of your
claws. I’ll lend to you all the strength in my bones.
