I Got Lost Once

Inspired by Fernando Pessoa-
I got lost once
And did not know
Where I was.
It was a place
I wanted to know,
But there was much
I dare not see
- And then I realised,
I was thinking
Of dancing,wiith
You, thinking
Of dancing
With me. 
(Gerry Aldridge 2016)

Would you understand the poem better, if I told you that thinking and not dreaming was intentional and changes everything? Just an artistic enquiry for anyone who ponders poems :)
