Poem: Jumping dreams
By: Debleena Majumdar
That was a beautiful dream
You showed me last night.
A field of purple stretching,
Beneath a sky of gold.
And a mist of silver rain.
I wanted to stay awhile,
To breathe in that dream.
But you closed my eyes.
I cannot close my eyes tonight.
That field is where I want to be,
But I know you are waiting for me.
My feet hurt from jumping dreams,
My eyes bleed colours dry,
I shiver as your steps come closer.
“Leave me alone”, I cry, I shout
But you show me a new dream.
