o is for oblivion. #atozchallenge

oblivion.o is for oblivion.

at night I lie awake
watching you sleep beside me
listening to you breathing
wondering what you’re dreaming
I think of what will be
when I’ve slipped away from you
the moment I must move on
deep into oblivion
I hope our destined love
will remain inside your heart
warming you eternally
calming your uncertainty
maybe you’ll awaken
rest your hand where I once slept
then rise and find me in the night
alive only in blue moonlight

This is one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing… Repeatedly… For days on end. Below is the Live on SNL version. God, I love it.

If you’d like to hear the original recorded version of the song, you can find it HERE.

A to Z challenge — a letter a day throughout the month of April (except Sundays) until we reach z.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  6. This is one of your best. Bravo. Like your choice of O word. I wasn’t expecting that one. I know you usually don’t so dark, but this was a bit haunting. Good work.
