Oh, thank you 'kid' for your response. I have been thinking of her a lot lately. 'Tis what has brought me back to this site. I'm not quite sure if that's good or not...

SAR

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of China blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.

Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the strangers that you've met,
The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will.

Beautiful, Phil, thank you. I have an old friend named Sarah whom I used to call "Sar" but since that fateful time I have refused to since there is really only one SAR in my life.

She was really just the most wonderful PB participant and you can find her in the archives for a couple of years up until April, 2002 when she killed herself. During the period when we all knew her, she struggled with alot of things, but she was warm and intelligent and funny and she wrote like a dream and her star shined very bright.

She touched alot of people here deeply.

Thanks, actually, for asking.

Yes, I remember her. She was so caring, so supportive. She supported me more than my own family did when I went through shock treatments. I'll never forget sar.
Sar, if you can hear me, I love you and appreciate you. Thank you for what you did for me.

When I was still just reading I searched for suicide to see if there was any here, and found the thread where friend posted the ANNOUNCEMENT.

At that time i read through the entire thread and bookmarked the ANNOUNCEMENT.

Just now I was reading that thread again and then I come here and you have spoken of her, since I was last here!!!!!

Incredible!!

speechless (mark this day on your calendar!!)

just plain astounded jane

Phil and friends of Stacie - SAR;

There is so much more to what I am perceiving and feeling right now, for what I am experiencing in my own psyche, than I believe I can express, but I must try.

If you read my "OMG" previous post, that tells a part of it. Oh, how SAR's death, and the responses of you PB frends in that thread, has impacted me, even though I never knew her.

When I read back through that original announcement thread just a few minutes ago, I don't know why I decided to. It sits on my Favorites list, "ANNOUNCEMENT" in the folder where I have my PB and other health/med bookmarks, and this is the first time I have read it since way back when I started reading PB, long before I ever posted.

There are some very odd-feeling connections, or something, going on here for me.

Reading it when I was not yet a poster really triggered me in a few ways. Reading it again now triggered, some new feelings/memories also.

The original announcement thread touched me deeply, having lost many close friends to their own hand. It also pulled me into PB, and SAR is a special person to me, also, because even though I didn't know her, she touched my life, with PB.

Just in the past month I have been intensely (ovewhelmingly, at times) enveloped in the relationship of my life, which is still going on in me, even though it "ended" physically twenty-two years ago, when the only man I love, have ever SHARED love with, the man I should have married, killed himself. Because we had been locked in this love that i could not allow myself to accept for eleven years. And he could not handle it any longer.

I thought I had accepted it at that time. Truth is, I still do not accept it. The easiest way to state how I feel is to say he will never die in me. Recently I came to the realization that, though we never legally married, I am his widow.

They say we all live on in our loved ones' memories. This is way more than that. I **feel** him still. It has never stopped, the love, the intensity, exquisitely almost painful.

Coming to Social just now and the first thing i see that i have not already seen is AuntieMel's post, "Remember sar? Who could forget (nm) AuntieMel 1/20/05" really SHOCKED me.

I read back through that thread and when I hit your post of "Vincent", it was just too much for me.

His name is/was Phil. Your screen name, Phil, triggered me the very first time I saw it here, and has been a fresh trigger every time since.

Your use of "Vincent" in honor and memory of SAR, as I perceive it, an unspoken statement that "this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you" is how you feel about SAR, even now, was, as I said above, just too much.

One of my closest friends back in those days placed me, similarly as you do SAR, as the one for whom "this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you". It has ever since been a major trigger and connector to that time, those experiences, those feelings, and the intensity of Phil.

This thread is about remembering SAR. I do not want it to become about my death-enduring relationship. I may post again on it, in relationships, perhaps. I can't continue now anyway or i will lose it.

I will always remember SAR. Thank you for sharing her with me.

just plain outta here jane

 

Thanks, Mair....
