#13.The Diary Of Jane – My Last Day On Earth

To the mystic wonder, this muse has been uncovered

Mankind and its faults, utter disappointments

The streets of this planet, appalling with scums 

To the noble one, I stand against the cynics 

Corruption entitling them to greatness, mere nepotism 

The plethora of beasts, each worse than their brethren  

This skin has seen it all, growing old for so called utopia 

We are fragments of doubt, trapped in the questions

To beyond the stars, lost in the forest of thought

 

 

Thank you,

Thank-You Message

Greetings,

I write this post with much happiness and joy. I am delighted to announce that stormywriter.wordpress.com has hit 50 followers today! 🙂

While this may seem as a small achievement, it is one that I shall cherish forever!

To all my readers (new and old alike): I strongly believe that literature is much more than an art. It is an integral part of oneself and it is the strongest, most bravest way to tell the world what you want. Writing is my passion!

I relish each and every like, follow and comment on my blog because no matter what it says or means, I am satisfied that it is being read by an audience. There is nothing more that I ask for!

I feel that it is important to share this milestone with my readers!

I leave you with some of my favorite lines taken from Robert Frost’s poem:

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

 

Have a nice day and stay tuned for more poetry!

 

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

 

#12.The Man Who Sold The World

In the park, around the corner

Where the trees in all subtleness

Gave life to my deep desires

 

Beneath my utter pallor

There lay a lost soul

With love on his platter

 

The world cared not for him

His beliefs were just reveries

Trust was to be beckoned

 

His sobriquets lost forever

An unknown amongst men

With a meaningless existence

 

All his goodness coveted

By the scums of this planet

To whom he shrugs with wonder

 

Fragments of love afloat

To the mastermind’s society

Longing to be buried with wise

 

To an ethereal home

Belonging to the graceful one

Nothing like earthly paradise

 

Information:

‘The Man Who Sold The World’ is a poem which really required subtle thought and intuition. It speaks the truth which hides in each and every one of us. It took me sometime to put it into words, but this is the result in the end.

The first-person start is bringing you closer to the protagonist who is a common person. A person struggling and enjoying life and its by products. He is having a rendezvous with himself on this occasion recalling the world and its entities. He believes that this world is suffering and that the ‘wise’ by which he refers to people with gratitude, love and affection are all gone.

He has absolutely no solution and appears to be lost. He wishes to go far away and exist in peace somewhere he can actually very happily call home.

This topic is something to think about!

Make this world a better place! 🙂

 

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

#11.Obsession of the Love Kind

The summer is going on! Congratulations to Germany for winning the FIFA World Cup 2014. The endless labyrinth of love continues to take over me. Read this poem for a first hand account on one such experience! 🙂 

I saw her once
That face etched
To head and heart

Our eyes met
Both deep with reveries
An unknown craving

She never spoke
Our connection strong
One of million words

That unique spark
One never heard of
Serenaded before us

Words were helpless
Actions had no time
My heart gave away

I believe in fate
Love and its magic
Make her only mine

– A melodramatic experience with a lovely, sweet and dark taste.

 

Information: 

 

This poem was written in contempt because the question of love is worth a million dollars. The true sense seems to haunt me. The questions are endless and each and every action needs due consideration. 

The plot seems to be simple but the emotions being carried here is too complex for any of us to understand. 

The protagonist meets a beautiful girl. He knows her as a friend. A dear and loving friend who would die for him. This relationship is truly beautiful and difficult to come by in the current generation. 

He is in utter doubt. He cannot trust his head nor heart. One is right; one is wrong. 

The protagonist tries another perspective where he believes that the answer is only hope. Hope for the right choice to be made. 

 

Thank you,

#10.Love at First Sight

The eerie smile

That beautiful gaze

Touched my heart

Blew my brain

Information:

Love at first sight is a wonderful thing but the truth behind it is strange.

This poem is my bittersweet symphony written from experience. It was written one day when I was shopping with my family in IKEA.

It is interesting to keep a poem short.

 

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev
