Underwater Monster


She wants him to
be a prince but
he’s already
a monster underwater

She clings
to the edge
of her imaginary cliff
a hand slips
cements his need
as she screams
“save me!”.

She wants so badly
for him to suspend
reality frustrated
as he stares at her with
excited blank eyes.

Suddenly she forgets
or falls anyway
it’s over she
runs away but
he doesn’t care.

She didn’t get to be the
rescued princess but he
is still
a monster underwater.
