Unrealistic Glimpse…

For a while,

wake me not,

from deep slumber,

let me live,

in the space of,

sweetest dream.

I am surrendering,

my reality for a lie,

I am in love with.

I know it is transitory

certainly fragile!

Perhaps a mere illusion

of a desiring mind.

Or may be an unived

cherishing wish!

It is winsome

purely whimsical

unreal though..

Yet, I love the way

it woos my senses and

captures my heart.

For a while

wake me not

from deep slumber.

Once again let me live

with all unrealistic glimpses

I am in love with..

    ” Unrealistic Glimpse ” , is a skilfully crafted ,contemplative work that uses the well worn dream/illusion trope well.
    However,on a minor EDITORIAL NOTE, the final 3 lines require attention.At present , ” and makes me long ,to live with those,” does not make sense, What precisely is being referred to by your use of the word “those” ? And the use of quotation marks around the final phrase left the reader baffled.Why use quotation marks and what is meant by the term unrealistic glimpse ?

    Together with the accompanying , ” Oh My Poem ” ,it heralds the arrival of Destiny Poets’ International Community of Poets’ newest registered member..Welcome Maaya Nair !

    Thank you Louis for your review about my poem…I noticed the error I made while conceiving the above 3 lines of my poem….About the title, Unrealistic Glimpse…I felt dream is not real and it is just a glimpse, we get when we are asleep…hence I opt to use the above title for my poem…Thanks & regards once again….
