I Will Leave You | A Poem by Peytin Grider

This is the place I will leave
you, here in this kingdom
of snow, where the king is
a madness and the throne
is too sharp to sit on

This is the place you will
have to think about how
you clipped my wings, tried
to make me like you, when
I was an untamed beast,
and my teeth would not be
filed down so easily

This is the place where you
will forfeit all you have
fought and sacrificed to win,
all will be lost because
of immortal, thriving greed.
