Tame - Poem by Caroline Guedes

I will probably regret this
It's just like Mom said:
'You can't change a man.'
He'll go back to what he knows
Cigarettes and old dirty clothes

But there was something I saw in you
Maybe you want to be tamed
This 'wild cat in a cage' mentality
Looks like it's wearing you down
Perhaps you want a different way of life now

Now, you know I'm the type of girl
Who wants white picket fences and
Children playing in the backyard
And I know you don't want to lose.
You have your variety and you get to choose

There's a part of me that believes
That you would like to be tamed
No more wild horse, alone in the field
Would you consider an honest girl like me?
Someone who could give you want you really need?

I look at your face and I see the agony
Of a stereotype stamped on your forehead
For too long and it's hard to clean off
But if you'll be tame with me,
I could be the woman you thought you'd never need
