I wanted you to know

I wanted you to know 

That my heart 

Never belonged

You

It belonged in the paint smears of an artist’s brush 

It belonged in the sound of the early bird’s song 

It belonged in the wild where coyotes roam, 

But you 

You 

Took my soul 

And nestled it 

Within the wide expanse of the night sky

You brought me to the stars
