Dreams Poem by Deep Mukherjee


Rating: 4.5

A breeze rustles through
On the greenish - brown hills;
Scattering raindrops of different colours
Puddles the flood of green paddy-fields;
Oh! the smell of damp-brown earth!
A gentle Easterly
A fading rain-bow
Slowly fades into the mist of
A silent lonely night;
Oh! the lonely southern star!
Tell me where I'm going?
This dreary desert of darkness
Engulfs me slowly like death;
Visions juxtaposed
Slowly driving me to insanity
Drinking poison in name of life!
Is this the Holy Grail?
Or I'm losing my mind?
There ain't a paddy field!
Easterly hasn't blown for years;
There ain't any Holy Grail!
Life flooded by the rain of tears-
It has been just a dream
I try to console my mind;
But I don't need a pinch to wake up;
This pain is just fine!
Oneday it will be time to wake
To witness a smiling spring
Like a nightingale chanting in dream
And endearing raptures in every swing.........

Very descriptive and good word choice. It sounds like you're also talking about being lost in some way, which is hightly relatable :)
