Hiding Tiger

Hiding tiger in my tree
Watching stallions wild and free
Wishing I was one of these
I make them an enemy
Villianizing fantasy
I owe an apology
What I wanted was to be
Seen and loved for being me
Stay inside the sky and seethe -
Writhe and cry and beg and bleed
Maybe, but eventually...
I'll come down and crown myself
