If she could go back
She would change her mind
If she could go back
She wouldn't have gotten intertwined
Into indescribable madness
I see that she would have much rather flied

If he could go back
He wouldn't have burned the tree
If he could go back
He would've set the bird free
Into the skies to glide above the seas
I see that he would have much rather let her fly

And at times I think that all would have been better for them,
Even if it met not having me.

No one is your strength or guidance. If life is what you wish to live then do not bind your soul to something unreal. The creater nor the keeper can heal you for it is blind faith that leads you.

Wow! This is a very heavy piece. Good for you for expressing it in words. I like how it's split into three stanzas. One for her, one for him, one for you. That's genius.
My critique would be to check grammar before posting. (Flied - I think you meant either fled or flown. And met - I think you meant 'meant'.)
Excellent work, keep it up!
