swirling oblivion/late night ramblings

Here I am, it's that time again.


The sun has gone down and the moon has come up.


The stars are out, the street lights shine and crickets sing their songs.


I lay in bed, head on my pillow, hoping the dreams will come tonight.


I close my eyes and picture oblivion swirling around me, pulling me in.


Pulling, pulling, pulling


But before I can give in to that sweet darkness and let myself fall freely into the unknown I am yanked,


suddenly back.


As electricity shoots through my neurons, the ones that make me think.


Think


Did I lock the door?


Did I set my alarm?


Did I lock the door?


Is my laundry done?


Did I lock the door?


I won't make it tonight. There is always tomorrow.


Tomorrow is the one.


The night I will finally get to travel through the swirling oblivion, falling


down, down, down


to sleep.

In the light of day, it also brings to mind the THEME of Midnight, as recorded by RegularJOE.
