What’s the use of a beating heart…
Every beat slowly strangulates.
Memories of love elicit atrophy
Turnt to ashes inside of me…
When raindrops falling on a tin roof
Could take its pulsing place,
A hollow and empty sound
How long will freedom elude me…

Excerpt from the book Melancholy’s Autograph
About the Author
Sarah began writing poetry in the 3rd grade, her first collection of poetry being called ‘Poems Galore’. There were several times throughout life when she had to stop writing, times when she was silenced by life, was void of feeling, or felt too much to put anything on paper.
She finds solace in the elegiac poetry that she writes today. She began sharing some of her pieces on social media and realized how much feeling her poetry brought about in others, her ultimate goal. Sarah has always wanted to be an author and thanks to Creative Talents Unleashed and their publishing contract it was brought to fruition.
