Come Back Down | A Poem by Peytin Grider

Don’t worry, this rise
will only last so long and then
I will come back and be your
princess or queen, whatever

Don’t worry, I will float
a while, but I’ll be back,
dress the way you want

Of course, by then I will
be changed in ways you
will not understand

I will be a dark queen,
a bloodlust princess,
and you will find that what
you wish on me will happen
but in a way that costs you.
