Dreams

Lift me to the sky
Drop me without warning
Chase me like a mad dog
Haunt me like a ghost

Caress me like a mother
Elate me to rapture
Gift me mansions and money
Carry me to wonderlands

What’s life?
Without dreams
Meaningful or pointless
Colourful or tasteless

A dreamless life
Boring and bland
Welcome the dreams
Enjoy the grandeur and terror

I am not a poem-person. So, my clueless comment could be pointless.

The title is "first person plural" and the verbs all are for "first person singular". Isn't it?

(I don't know if grammar matters? Forgive me for my ignorance)

Liked yore blog. Am yet to check your other blog will do that too.

KParthasarathi: Thanks. Will add the followers list. :-)

Sands: Poem-person or not; your critical eye is always welcome. Grammar does matter. My blunder of titling without thinking made grammar go for a toss.
I guess you wanted to say that the title was plural and the lines were in third person singular. Right? I’ve made the corrections.
(This is what happens when one gets carried away, but didn’t I mention it could be worse?) :-)

Sujata: Thanks :-)

ABout dreams, this verse was so beautiful

"Lift me to the sky
Drop me without warning
Chase me like a mad dog
Haunt me like a ghost"

because so many dreams do chase us and then drop us and sometimes haunt us.....of course, they do offer mansions and money and thats when they drop us too often:)
