Day 133: Blank (Dheepan)

Meet me in the space between reality and dreams.

Hold me in that moment, so I can deliciously wait still in your arms.

The seconds before I awake to the storms left by yesterday’s actions.

Let’s stay here and let the world burn around us.

(C) Manivillie Kanagasabapathy

AN: This poem was inspired by my opportunity to see a movie call Dheepan, winner of the  Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. There is a beautiful scene in the movie, where the main female lead, Yalini, asks the hero, Dheepan, “Are you starting to believe this dream.” Those words stayed with me and I became fascinated with believing the dreams (lies, imagined reality) we have built around ourselves and the people around us. So this poem was a quick inspiration that came from that movie
