The collar holds tight around my neck,
You buckled me up yet look nervous
When I snap my teeth and snarl.
You put this in me,
Gave me my fight back.
Poured a fire into my belly
Too ferocious to stamp out
You awakened in me a lust that had died,
Fanned a flame of existence
Reignited something in the darkness
That which slumbered peacefully
Until you rattled that rusty gate
Yet now, here you stand
As I strain against my leash
And all the while you think
How to subdue me once more.
