Your Renegade Heart
Your renegade heart, so darkly pure
Once scarred by light found insecure
Our momentum of romanced waves converged
Drowning all foundations of reserve
But my faint mount failed to keep pace
Across your tangled steeplechase
When every question was a crime
Smug sneers met any need of mine
Callowness furled in fickle curls
How you despised the unrepentant world!
Yet, I thank you for this cruel clarity
For if you are the villain, the hero is me
So I flew on wings shed of regret
With a strength you'd like me to forget
Now, my second-hand heart, though incomplete
Even ragged, tattered and stitched - still beats.
