I cannot commit

I cannot commit
because I will leave
even with both feet planted on the ground
and the winds beg me to stay
I cannot commit
for I am fleeting
I cannot bury myself like a stake
as wounds do not heal fast when deep
I can promise to stay
if you'll let me go
once my name is called
once my mind soars
For love is not freedom
For the heart blood gushes forth
For committing commits the clipping of wings
Yes, you can fly,
then you cannot.
