I just sorta dreamt this up. Dunno how it came to me, but it did. It's pretty depressing actually. I think you'll get what happened by just reading the story, but I'll explain at the end if you're lost.
I walked past the chared wreck
The fire burnt everything, the porch, the deck
I could have saved you, that's the sad part
I saw you in danger and screaming out your heart
and I paused.
If only I had a little more time
To spend with you, to be with you
I would kill just to see you.
I saw your face as you died
It was dirty and you had cried
"Why didn't you save me?" it said.
I walk past the graveyard.
I used to love it here, now its so hard
Just to breathe.
I walk to your grave.
I remember your funeral
The band played your song.
Everyone told me how sorry they were
For my loss.
But I couldn't help but think,
I am the one who lived.
It should have been me who died.
Survivor's guilt they call it.
I call it the truth.
I would do anything to have you back.
We could have been together forever
We could have had a life
And been husband and wife.
I had been planning to propose that day.
I was late because I was buying the ring
Damn that blasted thing.
I could have been there
to save you when the fire started.
But I was late, and I doomed your fate.
We could have had kids
a little Jack or Sally
We could have raised a family.
We could have done a lot of things.
If only I'd had a little more time.
All right, the ending wasn't so great, but I needed a break from my longer fanfic, and this was just begging to be written. If you were lost, Sally burned to death in a fire that destroyed the castle. Jack got inside too late. It's all about Jack's thoughts and regrets. Please read and Review even if you didn't like it.
