Lioness

I fell in love with a lion
Pretending to be a lamb

I thought I was safe
In a place where evil lurked

I had found the wrong mate
I searched and searched

He was out lyin’
Deceiving
Cheating

False pretenses
Left me grieving

But now I’m a lioness
Pretending to be a princess

Searching, lurking
In the muddy earth
Waiting to find my own turf

To strike
And end the fantasy
That you could ever end up as “your majesty.”
