My World

A Poem by Giullia King

"Stop thinking about it" He said.
"It's not the end of the world."

"I know" she answered with trembling lips.
"But it's the end of my world."

Wow, you used 27 words to make a point and it worked! This was beautiful, you didn't need to write 5 stanzas to make a point but you needed 27 words. “The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.”
- Thomas Jefferson

Bravo!! I love this and I can't wait to read more!

Guilla,

Thank you, Richie! :)
Who we are is not always understood. People play games, enhance or detract. Your words could be exchanged, man to woman, woman to man. They say the bad character not the sweet heart. How cynically profound a meaning.

Succinctly expresses the point of view of male and female very well. The somewhat callous boy and the sensitive girl play off each other and tell a complex story in a few well-written words. There is a great deal more to this interaction than is realized at first reading. If this is 'Sunday scribble' I'll take more.

Good write, Gullia.

Be kind? ;0

Hmm.....

It's somewhat sad and sweet. Seems to me the female has lost her purpose or the will to go on, whether metaphorically or literally.

Pretty good, Kingy!

The duality of perception - neatly and poetically explored in a few words - excellent!
