Save Me

See, here’s the thing: 

I’m no damsel in distress,
just ridiculously dressed
to the nines when I should 
have worn sensible shoes

but this damn ball was the end
and be-all of my stepmother’s 
crazy squall, so I tried to comply. 

And now (I can’t say exactly why),
the princes
just keep on coming 
and all the knights have lost their shine 
and so I am sitting here 
talking to myself
(save me, me) 
in the dark. 

Bare feet are better, anyway. 

And when the morning comes, 
I’m gonna spark 
up this here dragon 
and remember how to fly.
