A Dream

Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

Each night, earth life suspended,
Without asking where you are going
Or who you are, you experience
As if life dreams of itself,
Content to keep happy, immortality
Behind the curtain of sleep.
It's a world you have no word for
And though it was real at the moment,
You call it a dream,
Which is lost as you awake.

    Behind the curtain of sleep,
    It's a world you have no word for,
    And though it was real at the moment,
    You call it a dream,
    Which is lost as you awake.
    Nice lines, thank you poet.(Report)Reply

    Dreams are real but are hidden from every mortal. It is those who carry the light into sleep who finally can see dreams as they are...reality.(Report)Reply

    At each night Earth is suspended. Night is made for us to sleep. At night dreams come. We feel importance of dreams much more. An amazing poem is very brilliantly penned. Re-visiting this poem I feel happy.10(Report)Reply

    It's a world you have no word for
    And though it was real at the moment,
    You call it a dream,
    How true, it's a world we've no word for.
    A beautiful poem, but I wish I knew more
    about modern, prose poetry.(Report)Reply
