Sleeping still


" I have slept long not knowing....what might have been"....when I heard this I wondered....why would sleeping be akin to not knowing? Why can't one assume that we know more of that which we couldn't otherwise when we are asleep....That sleep takes us to those corners both safe and unsafe that seem in real life too stupid a place to be or to uneasy a circumstance for practicality.....And yes there are times when waking up from dreams is unpleasant because there is sometimes so much of comfort in not knowing..the could have beens..the might have been s the drudgery of everyday familiarity, the drudgery of crushing your dreams into the uncomfortable world of practicality, where everything is black OR white and nothing has the muted shades of grey. I would have slept on and on... knowing that waking would take me away from the comfort of your arms. Dreams are where one is safely ensconced into the arms of love without the fear of being taken away by that which needs to be done..by that which needs to be said, to be polite, to be stupid enough to see life changing so much that you don't know if you exist anymore ..I shall perhaps thus sleep on and never want to wake up...As for what might have been? who cares, who knows..who wants to know..when the present of dreams is so exotic..So sleep on I shall perhaps..safe in the knowledge that the you in my dreams is a far cry from that which I could perchance in the realms of everyday..... unstable

Poignant Musing ! You have touched upon a topic that is the truth and most of us somehow know it but do not accept it ....

Good read

Maitreyee ji, indeed your post requires thinking and rethinking... I recalled the movie inception while reading it... how easy it is to be away from ground when in a dream... even I have seen some dreams which I would never want to wake up from....

Good Article,Sleep and Dream are closely connected and its a scientifically proved fact that we ppl drm daily at REM(rapid eye moment)phase bt dnt remember it most of d times.Black & white drms are vry common and eastman color dreams r very less. :) As mystery connected with Dreams is it gives us a sign of future,sense of deja vu or just try to connect the invisible dimensions of this world to us which we can't even think wen we r awake.
Waitin 4 more articles :)
