We keep our hearts locked away in cages
deep down, away from the light
We keep them caged like wild animals,
not to be trusted in the presence of others
But like wild animals
we cannot keep our hearts subdued,
they cannot be tamed.
It takes only one person
to open the gates.
In one simple moment, we drop our guard
and our hearts break free.
Truly terrifying is the fact,
That people don’t understand wild animals
and fear what they don’t understand.
