Story Idea: Sarah Died

A Poem By Elizabeth Anne // 11/29/2013

Sarah Dies
They said it wouldn’t end,
They said it would go on.
They said our love would be
Brighter than the sun.

It seems they didn’t know
What terrors would unfold.
It seems they didn’t know
Of deaths soon to be told.

The lights flew from the dark,
The blackness didn’t clear.
The blindness soon engulfed him-
Death whispered in his ear.

The lights flew through the night,
The clouds didn’t clear.
The sorrow soon engulfed her-
Death whispered in her ear.

Five years had come and gone
The darkness didn’t pass.
The sorrow didn’t clear-
Death is death, alas.

End.

Sarah Died
A man comes through the dark
And seeks to bring back light.
He does not show his face,
Despite his will for sight.

He keeps her from despair
And keeps her from her end.
She turns from him in fear,
But courage does not lend.

Perhaps she doesn’t love.
Perhaps he needn’t hate.
Perhaps they aren’t strangers.
Perhaps it’s not too late.

Their hearts are come undone.
A tear rolls from his eye
And rolls into her heart
As he starts to die.

Perhaps it’s not too late,
Perhaps they can be saved.
The end is not that close,
Another path can be paved.

He draws his final breath-
She died so long ago.
He draws another breath-
Her life again bought so.

Start.

So...sad...

The poem was so sad! But I DO like the plot as well; it sounds very good. I admire people who can plan their stories out, because usually I start one off, don't have a proper ending, and it fails. So good on you :)

What kind of losses are you thinking of? I just had this random thought: Could you include cancer in it? Nobody has written of cancer for ages, or at all, as far as I know on here. Both my grandparents have it now as of last week, and it's quite a miracle they are still alive. Praise Jesus! Anyway, so including cancer would be a good loss, maybe. Depends what you want to do.

"The lights flew from the dark,
The blackness didn’t clear.
The blindness soon engulfed him-
Death whispered in his ear."

Loved that stanza. I liked the rhyming, and it is also quite creepy/scary.

Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?” – Winnie The Pooh
