I Dare To Dream

By Pallavi Panda

I dare to dream
of a world
where many worlds
breathe between
the angles of words...
I dare to dream
to capture all the smiles
I have seen
and store them
in the same angles
shutting them tight
with a door in front;
So that when the
same letters will shift
from words describing
'h'appiness to 'h'ollowness
there perhaps still
be hope ...
for the faint smile of 
the past will resound
in the ears
like a soft lullaby
putting the sad eyes to sleep,
and they might get
refrained from dreaming
about a decision very dark...
I dare to dream
of a world of flying words
where they will carry
the message of hopes and smiles
even after the senders
won't be there to see
the birds reaching to the
needy eyes and hopeless dreams...
