I’m the Princess


I’m the princess I am
I’m royalty
you can tell because I toss and turn all night long
because there is a pea under my mattress
Oh, yes, a tender aristocrat that’s me
A pea.
oh, and some rocks
and a few little wheels off of things…
legos, book, keys,
always a few crumbs
oh, and there’s my wallet!
I’m the princess I am
I’m royalty
and I have the palace to prove it
it may look like a brick walk up with an out of order dryer in the basement…
but I do have a dragon
disguised as a guinea pig…. *in a hoarse whisper*… “its a fiercesome beastie.”
I’m the princess
and my royal consort agrees
sort of
well, he grunted while the game was on…
that’s tacit agreement, right?
even though the Royal Anniversary seemed to have slipped his mind…
for the third year in a row.
I think perhaps he can sleep on the side with the pea tonight.


About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
