Requiem for a Dream

“Do you believe in afterlife?” Asked one dream to another. [Image Source]

what if i tell you
there’s an island of
dreams
somewhere
far out there

there
where empty crazy 
unaccomplished abandoned
dreams
land after their death

there
where myriad dreams
float in stale air
aimlessly
like flaccid ghouls

you can catch as many
like a dreamcatcher
to hear
their shattered stories
their mournful songs

a pang of
sadness
is bound to seize you
and you’d wonder
how good would it be if

if only history showed reverence
for our ruined dreams
like it does for
ruined works of
art and architecture
