Dreams - Poem by Ujjol Kamal

Dream undresses in the night sleep
While the silvern slumberous stars look in vain for relief
The term belief is only a relative mean
So is time, tide, space, eternity-

Definitions define, deny, devise, deceive life's hidden meaning 
If the rotation of the Earth
It will be the end of everything 

The whole Universe is balanced on an fine invisible string
If a bead is broken the whole Creation will cease to exist-

Dream undresses the invioable belief of a beauty
The ugly worm wiggle through the fun-fed-bed of rose and lily

The rain-clad sky starts to drip and dropp drops of rain here and there
The wet wind whistling unwise
The oceans open watery wide give birth surreptiously the beastly death-defying hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunami-

Dream dream dream
Do not let my ship scream
The seamen lay bewildered bewitched
One by one they jump overboard caring nothing
As if they're re-enacting the cycle of continuity
Life and death
Birth and grief

Am I still in dream
Why I cannot hear my own scream
Will somebody please wake up up
I'm drowning-
Do not tell me it's not a dream-
