Princess

She waves her hand

Covered with luxuries

She appears before her people

With a deceitful fa├žade

.

She speaks of peace and harmony

She speaks of much better times

Her words full of happiness and optimism

Hiding the sorrow of reality

.

She loves them all

And they love her back

And this was enough for her

For she has no one

.

A life of comfort

With satin gowns

And bejeweled crowns

An empty life

.

She's tired of it all

The life of indulgence

The life of appearances

And fraudulent smiles

.

So one day she decided

To leave it all behind

Her people

And her life

.

She left on the witching hour

And ran thither to the dark forest

With happy thoughts

And hopes for a better life

.

A rustle of trees

The howl of the wind

And the whispers of animals

Regret was in the air

.

She looks back

As reality hits her

She wonders

Where she would go

.

With no food nor water

Useless jewelry

And torn clothing

She moved on

.

A snap was heard

"A broken twig,"

She says to herself

With positive thoughts

.

A hungry growl

"My stomach,"

She says

Hoping this was true

.

Yellow eyes, grey fur

And pointed ears

"A rabbit,"

She says, staring at the shadow

.

And as the moon shone

To reveal the horrid creature

"A wolf,"

She whispers

.

Cold sweat

A pounce

A growl

A scream

.

"My life, though how void, was better

Than that of a pauper how fortunate am I

And how foolish for throwing it all away,"

Were her last thoughts

.
