I saw a dream of a floating corpse,
Sleeping in peace, with no warps.
I wonder what it would be dreaming,
No commands, no regrets, but eyes still not gleaming.
Will it ever get tired of this night,
And wish for a morning beam to enter its sight?
Or is it better to lie in dark,
Where birds never chirp, dogs never bark?
What if Endymion suddenly opens his eyes,
Finds no beauty, no color and nobody wise.
Will he choose to sleep again in dark,
Or wander to see the change, what would be his remark?
If a body is sleeping with its eyes closed,
The dream can break without being disclosed.
While a dead’s dream is shrouded in mystery,
No demands, no expectations, still a long hidden history.
Let’s turn this body into a couple of corpses,
Riding smoothly over the water, no need to feed the horses.
Let’s twinkle like stars without owning its light,
Glaring far enough with proud, no quarrel, no fight.
No light, but a colorful night is waiting,
Let’s fall asleep, without contemplating.
Yours and mine dream shall be woven
Together in the sky and beneath the ocean.

Introducing a new perspective
I am updating this post with a little change in perspective. Previously when I wrote this poem, I had a different thought behind the theme. But this time, I would like to confess that the perspective is completely new.
I have changed some form and meter, but not much. As I believe that every time you read a poem, you can read it with a new perspective. So I didn’t bother myself to bring much changes in it.
This has been done in response to d’verse MTB. Our host Björn wanted us to bring a new perspective by coming out our comfort zones. Well I would like to thank him for such a creative challenge.
