oblivion

oblivion

take me back to the beginning,

and end it all before it begins.

before the first day,

that started it all.

the first tears,

that screamed why.

the empty and confused look,

that asked what is happening.

the first word,

that said I know who you are.

the pain,

that came without invitation.

the sorrow,

that forced its way in.

the betrayal,

that left me saying I can’t believe this.

the deaths,

that left me dead too.

take me to the place,

where it never started.

make it all go away,

like it never was.

  1. This was nice. Makes me wonder how many of us would have preferred to be born if indeed we were given a choice.

  2. @anakadrian thanks, I would definitely have said NO if given the choice.

  3. “take me to the place,
    where it never started.
    make it all go away,
    like it never was.”
    These lines particularly captivated me….
