Prompt for August 3rd, 2012




I heard a fly buzz when I died;
The stillness round my form
Was like the stillness in the air
Between the heaves of storm.

The eyes beside had wrung them dry,
And breaths were gathering sure
For that last onset, when the king
Be witnessed in his power.

I willed my keepsakes, signed away
What portion of me I
Could make assignable,-and then
There interposed a fly,

With blue, uncertain, stumbling buzz,
Between the light and me;
And then the windows failed, and then
I could not see to see.

- Emily Dickenson

I'm the mood for a bit of drama... Give us the death of your main pro- or antagonst. Will they fail at the goal, watch it slip between their fingers? Will it be a moment of self sacrifice, to protect what they hold dearest? Any regrets, fears, unsolved problems, or unfinished business?
