What have I done?

I spoke your love out loud

Now it acts like an entity

that i summoned

But I can’t satisfy

She wants me to act

In her name

Fuelling my rebellion

Asking me to prove my claim

Striping me from inhibition

Freeing me of shame

Breaking out the wild love

that took me years to tame

Cutting the weights off my wings

They spread wide

And I realize

I did this to myself

The day I called your name

I realize this passion is my doing

There’s only me to blame.
