the night.


And when the night comes
And the moon fights the sun
And the stars battle clouds
And the demons kill sleep
And the chaos destroys peace

I will dream of
The night without pain
The night tranquil and still
The night safe from harm
The night I slept in your arms

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, 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, too. 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.

    I like the image of two opposing forces at odds with one another. That’s just how it feels sometimes: a battle. xo

    This is a beautiful dream. I try to think about happy things when I can’t sleep because usually my mind is whirring with sh*t so late at night.
