Oh Terrible Dream

from As If Tomorrow by Atom Orr



From far away you came to me this night
Black wings a-flyin' in a mirrored sky
First-day love with seven-year eyes
A serpent's kiss leaves a taste in my mouth's wish

I keep the night
Oh begone, oh terrible dream

The night's end swung down, swung down upon my chest
Taking my heart, my soul, my sins, and all the rest
Like a passion's hunger, I have for thee
It was the Dark, the Dark waiting for me

I keep the night
Oh begone, oh terrible dream

Only nothing is untaken Only nothing is forsaken Only nothing is left of my memories of my love
