Two Travellers Poem by ANJANDEV ROY

Two Travellers

Rating: 4.6

Two travellers had travelled a long way,
They became weary and exhausted,
At night they took shelter in an inn,
They lay in the same bed
And dreamt different dreams in their sleepy realm.
One traveller dreamt an evil dream,
Fear and anxiety thoroughly grabbed his mind;
Another wayfarer dreamt a very pleasant dream,
He slept with great ease and comfort at night.
In the morning they woke up with different feelings,
And expressed to each other about their dissimilar dreams
In the previous night,
Dream itself smiled aside,
As it knew how to cast its separate spells on different men.

Fabulous poem about the difference of what is going on in two peoples' minds during their dreams despite how close they are in bed. Great way to understand the difference of all people and what is going on in their minds and how poetry starts to bring us together, taking over the dream world with at least similar words. But how different all our dreams must be despite. Thank you for sharing! Excellent poetry!
