I have dreamed of you so much that you are no longer real.
Is there still time for me to reach your breathing body, to kiss your mouth and make
your dear voice come alive again?

I have dreamed of you so much that my arms, grown used to being crossed on my
chest as I hugged your shadow, would perhaps not bend to the shape of your body.
For faced with the real form of what has haunted me and governed me for so many
days and years, I would surely become a shadow.

O scales of feeling.

I have dreamed of you so much that surely there is no more time for me to wake up.
I sleep on my feet prey to all the forms of life and love, and you, the only one who
counts for me today, I can no more touch your face and lips than touch the lips and
face of some passerby.

I have dreamed of you so much, have walked so much, talked so much, slept so much
with your phantom, that perhaps the only thing left for me is to become a phantom
among phantoms, a shadow a hundred times more shadow than the shadow the
moves and goes on moving, brightly, over the sundial of your life.

—Robert Desnos

I Have Dreamed of You So Much is a melancholic poem written by French surrealist poet Robert Desnos. The heartfelt nature of Desnos’ lines have touched artist Emma Vakarelova in such a profound way that led her to create a poetic 3-minute animation.

The textures, colors, imagery and exquisite compositions make every frame into an art piece. “When I paint, I fly over a magic garden, full of secrets, that I can illuminate only with the light of the fireflies” Writes Vakarelova.

I invite you to fly over magic lands and enchanting oceans with this emotional collaboration between a French poet and a Bulgarian artist. Enjoy the show!
