Lion Woman

Born under the sign of Leo                    I am a monster
A Hellenic demon                                   I squeeze, tighten my hold
A living image                                         I am a killer
Carved out of rock                                   I am a beast
Crowned with beauty                             I am bad luck
A lion’s body                                            I am destruction
Eagle’s wings                                           I am unloved
Sting of a serpent’s tail                          I am a weaver of riddles
If you cannot solve my riddle               I will eat you up
If you cannot love me                            I will eat myself
Love me                                                   Myself
