Dream Interpretation and Poetry – Interpreting Love Poems

Today 2022

I was looking for keywords in order to write my next article, and since I just wrote two e-books about love and happiness and the interpretation of dreams about the person you love, I was looking for keywords related to love. Then I saw that one of the best keywords was “love poems”.

If you know my story, you know that I have been a writer since I was 7 years old. I have a great literary talent, but instead of becoming a literary writer, writing mainly poetry, which is my passion, I learned how to translate dreams, continuing the work of the famed psychiatrist Carl Jung.

The continuation of the work of a psychiatrist transformed me into a psychiatrist too, the same way that a psychiatrist became a language translator when he tried to decipher the mysterious meaning of our dreams.

I abandoned literature because I became a doctor and I didn’t have time to be also a writer and keep writing poetry.

However, since I saw that there are so many people caring about love poems and since I love writing poems, now that my English is better, after writing so many articles for you, I dared writing two love poems, with the intention of perhaps creating a collection of love poems at my first site, near my e-books about love and happiness and how you can interpret dreams about the person you love, your bonus.

I wrote my two first poems easily, but I really don’t have time for poems because too many people are still sending me their dreams for professional translation and psychotherapy, taking advantage of my summer offer, which is coming to an end.

Anyhow, perhaps after the summer offer and the completion of my new e-book Dream Interpretation as a Science – The Cure for All Mental Illnesses, with all the collection of dreams that I collected on the internet from people all over the world, I will have more time and I may continue writing love poems, which, for me, are very easy to be written.

However, since I’m also your teacher and I’ve been giving you lessons about the scientific method of dream interpretation through my articles, I had the idea to use my first love poem in this article in order to show you how poetry helps you understand better the dream language.

This is why I, a poet, could translate better the dream messages, than Carl Jung, who discovered the correct method of dream interpretation but was a doctor, who lived far from the meaning of the words, languages and translations.

Here is my first Love Poem:

Secret Love

Nothing seems possible or real.

Nothing is simple or attainable.

Will the ocean between us disappear?

Will all walls extend their limits?

Nothing seems sensible.

But nothing can be hidden for very long.

Life asks for our ticket, and examines us at length.

Our facial expressions reveal

the obvious secret…

Is this dream ever going to come true?

Will I ever manage to be near you?

The answer is so difficult…

The future, so cruel…

Separated by the ironic distance,

our eyes and our existence

look for bridges and invisible connections,

beyond ephemeral minutes

and their multiple dimensions.

………………………………………………………………

Now I’m going to interpret the meaning of this poem according to its linguistic value. You’ll see that the interpretation of a literary work is quite similar to the interpretation of a dream, even though when you learn to exactly interpret your dreams you become a true translator: you translate images in words.

You are not an “interpreter” anymore, because the interpreter is the one who tries to understand the hidden meaning of a certain text, while the translator simply translates words from one language to the other, without looking for any meaning before exchanging the words from one language to the other. This is quite different!

While Carl Jung was a beginner and therefore a dream interpreter, trying to understand the mysterious meaning of the dreams without enough knowledge, especially because he abandoned the research into the unknown region of the psyche, I who continued his research and had a better notion about how to interpret the meaning of a literary work, can present you a method of dream translation, which is much more accurate than the vague method of dream interpretation used by Jung.

Let me show you now the literary interpretation of my first love poem:

“Secret Love

Nothing seems possible or real.

Nothing is simple or attainable.

Will the ocean between us disappear?

Will all walls extend their limits?”

The title defines the poem, showing us that it is about a secret love.

Nothing is possible, real, simple or attainable. We see that there is a great difficulty. This is a love between two people that are too distant, either geographically or socially, or for many other possible reasons.

And here begins the poetical expression:

“Will the ocean between us disappear?

Will all walls extend their limits?”

The ocean cannot disappear and walls never extend their limits because they don’t have any plasticity. So, I, the author, am trying to show you that what I desire is something impossible.

When we interpret the literary meaning of a text or poetry, we try to understand what the author’s intention was. We search for the meaning that the author gives to his literature, we try to discover what the author wanted to express with the words that he or she chose to use. We don’t give our personal opinion about the document and its meaning.

So, with the words “ocean” and “walls”, we understand that there are tremendous obstacles to be overcome, so that the couple in love will be able to be together. This is a very difficult matter.

Continuing:

“Nothing seems sensible.

But nothing can be hidden for very long.

Life asks for our ticket, and examines us at length.

Our facial expressions reveal

the obvious secret”…

Here we have a metaphor, a personalization of “Life” as if life was a person that checked for our tickets when we are traveling.

With this metaphor the author shows us that life is a trip, we are in constant movement, and some day we have to give answers, which cannot be avoided.

This part shows us also that the truth cannot be hidden, no matter how much the couple may try to hide it, since other factors denounce them, factors that are beyond their control.

Now, you may think that the author used the words “ticket” and “secret” only because they make a rhyme. However, keep in mind that when an author decides to use certain word in a poem because it ends the same way as another one, he or she has always to choose the word that fits also with the meaning of the text.

Art, the purpose of each word and the purpose of each meaning, make the poem together.

Continuing now the poem:

“Is this dream ever going to come true?

Will I ever manage to be near you?

The answer is so difficult…

The future, so cruel”…

The first two questions and the first answer are easy to be understood, without interpretation. However, the last statement makes us wonder what exactly intended the author to show us with the phrase: “The future, (is) so cruel”.

The future appears in a metaphoric form, as if the future was a person, since only a person can be cruel.

Why is the future cruel? The author could describe it with positivism presenting perhaps a possibility of a meeting and a relationship between the couple in the future, but the future is described as being cruel, what means that in the future more impossibilities and obstacles may separate the couple, instead of uniting them.

And now the end:

“Separated by the ironic distance,

our eyes and our existence

look for bridges and invisible connections,

beyond ephemeral minutes

and their multiple dimensions”.

The first sentences are clear and we can easily understand their meaning. However, what exactly do these words mean: “Beyond ephemeral minutes and their multiple dimensions?”

Ephemeral is that which lasts only for a very short period of time. The minutes are really ephemeral, because time passes very fast and the minutes have a very short duration.

But what are the multiple dimensions of the minutes?

Let’s examine the entire paragraph in order to understand completely its meaning:

“Separated by the ironic distance, our eyes and our existence look for bridges and invisible connections, beyond ephemeral minutes and their multiple dimensions”.

So, the lovers’ eyes and all their existence look for bridges and invisible connections in the short minutes of such possibility and in their multiple dimensions, meaning that these short minutes have a continuation.

They are extended to another level, assuming a different form, so they are no more ephemeral, since they remain, either in the form of memory or in the form of many consequences that result from the brief contact of the couple during only brief minutes.

These could also be the brief minutes where a certain connection between them is possible, even when they are not near each other.

Therefore we understand that the author is talking about a secret love almost impossible to become a relationship between the couple.

You may believe that this is something you understood from the beginning, because this poem was not difficult to be interpreted, but now you have a clearer idea about its meaning.

Now, you can also better understand how we interpret a dream.

In opposition to what happens when we try to interpret a dream, if we know how to exactly translate the dream symbols, we don’t have to guess and try so hard to understand what the dream’s author is trying to say. We simply translate the dream scenes without difficulty, giving known meanings to the dream images.

We know for example that the ocean symbolizes craziness. So, when we translate the dream, we use the word craziness in the place of the ocean. We keep putting words in the place of the images and this is how we discover what exactly the dream is trying to show us.

If the sentence “Will the ocean disappear?” was part of a dream, we would translate it as: “Will craziness disappear?” since the ocean is a very important dream symbol. This is what we do: we look for known dream symbols and we translate their meaning, relating them to the other parts of the dream.

When you learn the dream language according to the accurate translation provided by the scientific method after my simplification of Jung’s method, you discover that it is not difficult and mysterious at all, as all dream interpreters until today have presented it.

For them it is still mysterious because they are guessing, like I was guessing when interpreting the literary meaning of my first love poem, especially when I interpreted the meaning of the minutes’ multiple dimension.

Another interpreter could give them another definition, because an interpretation is the result of a subjective view of what the author was trying to say. Each one interprets the words of a poem in a different way when trying to understand the author’s intention, even independently of their personal opinion.

Imagine now what happens when the interpreter expresses only his or her own opinion, without caring about the author’s intention…

An accurate dream translation is totally different from a subjective dream interpretation, which is quite similar to a literary interpretation.

When we translate the dream’s meaning, we don’t guess: we replace images by known meanings, the same way we do when we translate one language to the other.
