I Have Dreamed Of You So Much Comments

Rating: 3.1
I have dreamed of you so much that you are no longer real.
Is there still time for me to reach your breathing body, to kiss your mouth and make
your dear voice come alive again?

Robert Desnos

Great poet who died in the concentration camp of Hitler at the age of 45. Only those who know pain of separation can understand this poem. Oh dear poet.......

I found this poem five years ago at the advent of an intercontinental relationship. I thought it beautiful then. Five years later, and with no love lost, I find it tawdry and cheap. It understands nothing. It touches upon nothing. Love grows and strengthens, and what I thought this described, doesn't come close to what actually happens. Thank God, because this is torturous. And the reality is not. I am still happy. Happier than ever. There are no shadows here.

It maybe worth it to look at the original French version of this beautiful poem - 'J'ai tant rêvé de toi que tu perds ta réalité. Est-il encore temps d'atteindre ce corps vivant Et de baiser sur cette bouche la naissance De la voix qui m'est chère? J'ai tant rêvé de toi que mes bras habitués En étreignant ton ombre A se croiser sur ma poitrine ne se plieraient pas Au contour de ton corps, peut-être. Et que, devant l'apparence réelle de ce qui me hante Et me gouverne depuis des jours et des années, Je deviendrais une ombre sans doute. O balances sentimentales. J'ai tant rêvé de toi qu'il n'est plus temps Sans doute que je m'éveille. Je dors debout, le corps exposé A toutes les apparences de la vie Et de l'amour et toi, la seule qui compte aujourd'hui pour moi, Je pourrais moins toucher ton front Et tes lèvres que les premières lèvres et le premier front venu. J'ai tant rêvé de toi, tant marché, parlé, Couché avec ton fantôme Qu'il ne me reste plus peut-être, Et pourtant, qu'a être fantôme Parmi les fantômes et plus ombre Cent fois que l'ombre qui se promène Et se promènera allègrement Sur le cadran solaire de ta vie.'

Here is an emotion not felt by many. Rare it may be but didn't escape poet's keen eyes. He brought it out here beautifully.

Hi Kim, I agree a little bit, but also think that we all dream of finding that special someone.... And sometimes it comes as just an ideal, not necessarily a physical woman. There's something inside us that drives us to search for that special person, that better half, that soul mate. And I believe in soul mates. Unfortunately there's some poor woman out there who is mine..... Boy did she ever get the short straw.... I don't know who she is yet, but she is such a large part of my desires in life - so deeply, that she does reach into my dreams as well. I get Mr. Desnos Poem completely...

Robert Desnos is an inspiration to me, because I love surrealist love poetry.

One of my favorite poems ever, and it makes perfect sense to those who can understand.

a magical poem by a (still) underestimated poet who deepened, & transcended his surrealist influences.
