Dream of Her

Dream of Her

A Poem by Joshua McNay

I had a dream about her last night. The details of it didn't make any sense since none of it was true. Only part of my dream that was accurate was her. Photo credit: Sabina Panayotova

This is so sad, but in beautiful, melancholic way.Well done

I quite like the musicality of this one. The imagery and story are strong as well. Two notes: line break the last line at "bed" so the reader is not exactly scrambling across that line. Second, watch out for repetition, you imply three times (once is actually explicitly said) that a certain factor is a lie, and in a poem that short, we readers don't necessarily need to be reminded so constantly that such factors aren't true.

Wonderful writing. Very imaginitive and clear. Quite relatable as well. Definitely one of my favorite poems I have read on this site.
