Ode to Little Darlin'

 *For those not reading writing blogs all day, a "darling" is that scene (also sentence/paragraph/chapter/character/plot point) that you love and think is your best ever...but that needs to go for the betterment of the story.

Ode to Little Darlin'

Little Darling',

You've gotta know I love you
And I know you love me, too
How the world would be a pretty place
If it were just us two
But things have come between us
Though my attraction has not dimmed

You still bring...

A smile to my face
A light to my eyes
And a spark to my life
But it's time

It's time to say goodbye
To wish each other well
Have fun out there, little darlin'
Be strong out there, little darlin'
You know I love you
You know I'll miss you

It's not your fault
And I don't blame you
It's just because
You happened to be written
In the wrong, wrong, wrong
Point of view

LOL! I just save all of mine in a Darling Graveyard. It's awesome--and will make great stuff for my website later. :)
