About the poem
This poem represents an imaginary image – all the things described in this poem are based on an imaginary dream by the artist. The theme of this poem centers around scenes from dreams and the subject of the poem expresses the emotion of waiting. When you feel scared and helpless, and a bit uncertain, being cautious and waiting seems like the only things to do. Whether hope will come and whether we will voluntarily give up hope is an open question in this poem, which does not yet have the answer. What happens in real life leaves its mark on our subconscious mind, pitting hope against helplessness and anxiety. As a result, we have strange fantasies and dreams. Shall we go back to real life to find an answer or continue to escape?
Insomnia, also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder in which people have trouble sleeping. They may have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep as long as desired. Insomnia is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. Insomnia can be short term, lasting for days or weeks, or long term, lasting more than a month.
Someone who does not dream when they sleep is also an insomniac.
