Die my dear? Why that's the last thing I'll do

She stared out over her world
Everything that she had ever known
The dark desolate landscape was unimpressive
Hard to believe it was just filled with light

Her world was safe and charming and not enough
The borders contained her too tightly
The sun never stayed long enough
And the moon was never bright enough

She sighed at her world
Full of boredom and regret
For the first time in her life, she turned away
Leaving, unfulfilled and uninterested

A sad and mournful piece. Very well written. Excellent work!

"A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk'?, and I say 'No that's trendy'!"- Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day

Excellent free verse. You really found the sweet spot between prose and poetry here!
