A Firefly In The World Of Dreams- - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

closing my eyes I sleep
body floating in darkness
without substance
whether I lay up or down
or sideways
I do not know
there is no direction here
all around me in the blackness
fireflies seemingly twinkled
a vast horde fading away
into unimaginable distance
those were dreams
the dreams of men and women
they were my dreams
I rove the darkness ably
darting and weaving through the sparkles
trying to find you
somewhere across this world of dreams
all glittering in-front of me

    I do love this one
    You have captured the essence of human desire
    As a firefly in this life where do fit; how do fit; what is our place in this world
