I Dream In My Dreams

This poem has been selected as one of the picks for BlogJunta Editor's Choice.


BlogJunta - An ode to the Blogosphere


Where tall trees in the wind sway
Beneath them in the dark, down I lay
I open my eyes, puzzled, where am I?
Irregular patches of moon light
Through the leaves show me the way

Cold gust of wind blows my feeble heart
Sends a shiver through each and every part
Lonely, I stride as fast as I can
Taking a right here and a left there
I pace, only to reach the point of start

Is this place a maze? fragile me wonders
I feel lost among the sky-touching boulders
When suddenly I have a hazy vision
Of a lady in white who seems familiar
I am drawn towards her in spite of my fears

Who is she? I try hard but can't remember
In the darkness she glows as if on fire
When I reach near my lady, she vanishes
Leaving me alone in this dark place
She's the lady from my dreams, my sugar

I am afraid, and I want her to be with me
Lost again in the dark, I feel eerie
Somehow, I find my way out
Only to find my beloved lady in white
Sitting on a rock and lost in a reverie


I started writing this one for poetry potluck last week but couldn't finish it then. Anyway, here it is now. Enjoy and happy blogging.

For Thursday Poets Rally Week 35.

Lost again in the dark, I feel eerie
Somehow, I find my way out
Only to find my beloved lady in white
Sitting on a rock and lost in a reverie,,

The story within the poem was engaging, I felt as though I was lost with the character myself.

This left me feeling sad yet hopeful for the lady to be rescued and in so she will rescue you. Great job, glad you shared.

TALON said...

There's a mystical quality to this poem that I really like. Dreams...they're so evocative, aren't they?

Dark and mystical.. eh?
Dreams are made up of those.. :)

Deborah said...

Beautifully written.

Kavita said...

Brilliant imagery, Sumit...
This poem actually reminded me of the movie Inception in many ways.. especially the maze and 'sky-touching boulders'..

But I thoroughly reading this one.. and in the end, when you wake up to find the reality od your dreams dreaming... aww...awesome!!! Loved that touch of whimsical romance in the end... made it very sweet...

Harshika said...

Tootsie said...

It is very nice! She must be really pretty, your sugar.
And were you really dreaming? Is she alive? Does she exists? Ahhh too many questions!

JamieDedes said...

An evocative story in a poem. Nice! Happy Rally ... This is a perfect contribution.

RiikaInfinityy said...

wonderfully written, a dream within dream, amazing=P

The Reason You Come said...

Beautiful! The imagery is lovely. At first, I thought it was going to be a scary piece about a female ghost, but it turned out to be a romantic poem about the woman of your dreams. Such passion and yearning in this piece!

orange said...

wow... thats dreamy... i could see a man and a woman in white as I read the poem.. powerful imagery and great poem.

drmadangoyal said...

I am sure you this was day dreaming.

Ladies usually creep in young men' mind.

Poetic touch to the dreams was great.

Brian Miller said...

nice contrast in finding the lady in white and all the darkness...but still seems a dream i might hold onto...

frayedges said...

How cold an lonely. You captured this perfectly.

Claudia said...

Fantastic work, dreams and their symbols are always fascinating to me and this piece hit my curiosity hard! Thank you so much for sharing this piece!

Punam said...

Its a very nice poem.. and the title is lovelier than the poem itself. :)
So did u find your lady in white? Actually? :)

SeaGlass said...

There's a bit of Victoriana here, which is interesting. Have you read much Tennyson?

Sumit Sarkar said...

Thank you everyone for your generous comments :)

@Talon
definitely, they are... :)

@Lu Ann
No, I was just sitting and made it up. It wasn't a real dream and there's definitely no one... :D

@Dr. Madan Goyal
haha..I wasn't day dreaming...I just thought about writinf something like this..and this is what I came up with.. :)

@Punam
Na, there's no one actually :D

@SeaGlass
Ya, Tennyson is one of my fav..haven't read much of his work...but his poem "Tithonus" is at the top in my list... :)

bodhirose said...

I could feel the confusion and the wistful, foggy feeling of being lost in a dream. Wonderful job here, Sumit. Lovely...
