“Just as Wild”

A wild one

Appearing in early light

Glowing face

 

Living alone

Longing for mercy

 

Upset

Angry

Insane

 

Trembling soul

Humble thoughts

 

Our mouths

Our faces

We speak

We listen

 

Yet faces and mouths lie

 

The wild one

A gentlemen

Raised on virtue

And bad manners

 

Cursing like a pirate

Drinking just as hard

 

Sins are stubborn

Especially so

With a tattooed spirit

And a pierced heart

That only a love

Just as wild

Can tame
