The Dream Lost


You were always lost. Even
When you found me
Or were you not?
Had you not?

Even when we found each
Other
You were always lost
In a quest to
Find what you lost.

And then I believed you.
Your dream.
Not realizing that
Dreams are personal.
There is no Joint about them.
You dream and share the dream.
But only one can dream.

And so you were lost
And then you made me lose
Myself
And become part of that
Loss, and lost.

And now we are in the loss
Together,
In the search together-
Forever.

  1. Really like it and I think I get the deeper meaning! If you do not mind, this is the first person that came to me when I read this -- Sarada Devi (the better half of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa)

    1. :) I am glad you did not say 'me,'and I definitely don't want Kartik turning into Ramakrishna Paramahamsa...at least, not for the next 25 years. This is the beauty of poetry...to each his own meaning.
