I had cherished a dream
A dream which consisted of
A Romantic love
Full of care for his companion
An idealist soul
Transforming the facts into fantasy
An unknown journey
Showing the path of colourful flowers
A beautiful illusion
That could make me happy forever
Thanks to Disillusionment
Providing a new perspective
To view the life in a different way
To judge the beauty
That one had never perceived
To love someone
Who had not been loved
To find interesting
Which was once considered absurd

Though unexpected
Your aftermaths are worth enjoying
Full of bitterness but more challenging
The life of illusion is short living
But your symptoms are everlasting.

    Vaibhav, this is also a nice poem. i am a kind of person who loves to live in the dream world and escape into my fantacy land when life's bitterness comes to bite and take away a part of my happiness. i really liked your ending lines, they are very sweet. i don't see any harm in spending each day of your life away from the harsh reality and bring back some hope to cling on to for some time. take care, (Report) Reply

    So your flight has landed on the grounds of reality, a romantic dream, an ideal companion, mysterious journey, so you enjoyed being in illusion…but it is good to come back to face reality,
    Frost says in 'Birches'… it is good to climb the branches and experience heaven…but
    ‘Earth is the right place to love”,
    sooner or later this Disillusionment has to be faced.
    Your poem is systematically composed; it ascends in a pace and then descends back to reality…, impressive ending.
    Real to Ideal is more realistic than being Ideal to real….

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
