I Saw You In My Dream Poem by Arun Maji

I Saw You In My Dream

Rating: 4.3


I saw you in my dream.
But you know
I am not supposed to.
Why should a boy dream a moon?
Moon is from heaven
And boy is from earth.
They live far from each other.

Yet the truth is
I saw you in my dream.
Though, I didn't want to.
I didn't want to
Because I am not supposed to.

But the truth is
I saw you in my dream.
Because none else can steal your face
So I can't be wrong.


Now the question is
Why did I see you in my dream?
Why?
I don't know. I really don't know.
Do you know?

Simplicity. The poem is easy to understand. 'Why' you alone understand. Congratulations Arun for being selected.

Not easy to understand at all. " None else can steal your face' What does that mean? How can you steal someone's face?

Good subject of poetry- to A. admit that you saw somebody in your dream and B. Ask them what it means - instead of being only consumed by your own dreaming perception!

CONGRATULATIONS! They live far from each other but you have painted the near far scenic mind of dream in reality. The truth is that you saw her in dream. An amazing poem is shared here......10

Beautiful painting chosen to go with the poem, but I don't quite get the connection. The boy dreams about a MOON, but he's not supposed to. Why not? Why shouldn't a boy dream about a moon? To me, it just doesn't make sense! Perhaps I am simple too dense?
