So I Guess I'll Be Lonely Too
The princess watches her Kingdom from the highest parapet. She fails to notice the glorious architecture of the city within the castle walls. Her eyes don’t fall upon carts of export that make her economy flourish. She looks past her people, all working hard to support themselves, ignoring her in the process.
All she sees are the castle gates, barricaded from the inside by all manners possible. She stares at the guards patrolling the outer walls. Her eyes scan what looms beyond the dark grey walls.
Plains and streams.
Forests and dreams.
Like a tiger in a zoo. Longing for the world but never appreciating the fact that she is saved from being murdered for the black market or from extinction.
She sighs and prepares to return to her chamber and abandon all hope of leaving. A princess still has her duties and responsibilities, no matter how mundane they may be.
