#21.The Angelic Musings

The angels can hear me cry
They taste the bitter fear
Surrounding my every thought

This meticulous pain
Piercing through my lobe and heart
Grows stronger every second

I lost my hearth
To the ridicule of happiness
With untimely hope

I sold my soul
To satisfy that foolish dream
Of a journey to share my heart

Deranged flashbacks dissolve
In the depths of my mind
Forever scarring my thoughts

I want to disappear
To time immemorial
Alone

The angels pushed me away
From the joy and sadness
Into the pure void

Where answers float around
Like the game of thrones
Waiting to be struck

I cannot trust my instinct
Am I betraying myself?
Has the world won?

All that I want
Dear angel
Scream your anthem

I cannot live on this placebo
My body hurts
I cannot take this anymore

Scatter the meaning
Into my soul
Forever and ever more

Information:

The world is a blur to our protagonist.

An empty place with too many thoughts battling each other. Where is all the peace and happiness? Where are all the singing birds? – The protagonists thinks. 

His solitude keeps him satisfied yet always craving for the answers and the future. Is he alone? Do the angels control his thoughts?

Thank you,
Arjun Rajeev

#20.Memoir of a Broken Heart

I heard her thoughts
She was looming about paradise
I took her hand
I held it tight

Under the night-sky so bright
Her face lit up my heart
All that bittersweet despair
That nearly tore us apart

She hugged me tight
She made me promise
Of a life of pondering happiness
Yet loving sanctity and madness

This silly game made me smile
And laugh and cry
She wiped my tears
And kissed me goodnight

Information:

I am a hysterical romantic recovering from ‘restless heart syndrome’. This poem dwells into my plethora of emotions. This is a tribute for you, S.

The protagonist is facing untold worries in his head. He is trying to be peaceful. His entire world revolved around one single entity – his love.

He recalls every single moment, every single word and every single breath with her.
The memories keep hitting him over and over again and he just sits with himself in comfort. So, he decides to let his mind introspect once and for all.

… And the outcome?

Well, it is magical and beyond imagination to any normal person. This poem sums up the protagonists thoughts into one.
His soul feels calmer yet remnants of a love still haunts him. Memories never ever fade away. The protagonist has decided to cherish each and every memory with her.

Maybe that’s what life is all about – To appreciate every small thing around you and live the experiences.

“She said I can’t take this place,
I’m leaving it behind.
Well she said I can’t take this town,
I’m leaving you tonight.”
Letterbomb by Green Day

“Give me a long kiss goodnight,
And everything will be alright…”
Give Me Novacaine by Green Day

#19.DEATH OF A MARTIAN: 2

The tiny Martian told me goodbye
He planned to escape into our reveries at night
To an unknown beyond his wildest dreams
With nothing but timeless peace
He was lost in this so called world
Of beauty diminished without a cause
Blue storms and red days control his atmosphere
To make the cruel disappear
Home was a distant memory
A nostalgic wonderland
Of greed and misery

The tiny Martian told me hello
He waved and began a search into my soul
Filled with remains of a love and so
His powers were weak but his mind was strong
So he told me about the secrets of Mars
A planet of nothing but timeless peace
Nothing was ever incomplete
He wanted to be one unlike the rest
And put himself up for a test
So he decided to make a friend
With someone from another den
The journey to up and beyond
To a planet blue like the pond
Made him realize nothing was lost

Information:

‘Death of a Martian: Part II’ is a poem which summarizes into a prequel and sequel to the first poem: Death of a Martian: Part I. I strongly recommend reading the first poem which projects the protagonist’s interaction with the Martian.

In the first stanza, the protagonist, a satisfied troubadour recalls his final moments with the tiny Martian. The Martian has had an interesting interplanetary voyage so far. He plans to escape and explore into ‘unknowns beyond his wildest dreams’. He reminisces about Mars and its atmosphere.

In the second stanza, the sad protagonist elaborates his first ever interaction with his perpetual friend. The tiny Martian with all his beauty and ever astounding magic trudged through the realms of the protagonist’s quiet heart. The tiny Martian and the protagonist introspect about the galaxy and all its wonders.

The tiny Martian now resides in my mystic heart.I doubted that but now I am sure.
The world suffers everyday yet the tiny Martian fills us all with hope and reminds us of happiness and calmness.
The lack of life is the midst of life is disturbing and makes one think about the actual need-of-the-hour.
This is the true beauty of my sound extra-terrestrial being; he will appear in the time of your need. Your heart will always love you.

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

#16.DEATH OF A MARTIAN: 1

Fix me, tiny Martian
My heart craves your magic
Your splendorous escapade
Beyond the stars and into the blue
One merely written in my wretched destiny
To break into one disparate clique

 

Help me, tiny Martian
I am tired of everything
My soul is lonely like the stars above
I have lost my ability to believe
My heart’s rhythm is redundant
The cold has seeped into my brain

 

Can you help me, tiny Martian?
His magical mind was frail yet wonderful
He uncovered the secrets of my heart
My every belief was the truth
What I couldn’t see with my eyes
Appeared crystal clear to my heart

 

Make me believe, tiny Martian
I question my motive in this cruel land
Am I the only outcast to breathe this ghastly ether?
He managed to gather his thoughts for me
The world has always been in comatose
With seven billion lost in a sea of anxiousness

 

Save me, tiny Martian
I cannot comprehend my own sadness
The lack of love casts a lack of life
His body failed his every hope
He quickly looked into my soul
And said, “You are the happiest person on the blue planet!”

 

I don’t understand, tiny Martian
My ignorance keeps me in search
Of a void fantasy unknown to any land
Yet you believe in this dire troubadour
His figure grew solemn in a minute
He whispered, “There is a soul for your soul! Trust the Universe”

 

Don’t leave me, tiny Martian
My interplanetary friend’s time arrived
He spoke of ancient introspection
And blew my mind into that seven billion
He bid me farewell before his departure
And disappeared back into the realms of my old heart

 
Information:

‘Death of a Martian’ is a truly introspective poem. The search for happiness and beyond appears to haunt the whole of this poem. An extra-terrestrial being is involved in truly uncovering the meaning of life as well. Love drives your mind to places beyond your wildest dreams.

The poem is following a simple context. The protagonist here is a lost soul. He is lost in all aspects of his cold life. There is a lack of love, excitement and humanity in the cruel world he lives in. He is merely a puppet in front of the world’s giants who continue to grow amongst the commoners.

One day, the protagonist faces an once-in-a-lifetime interaction with a Martian. An actual extra-terrestrial being who has arrived on the crazy blue planet. He cannot take it anymore. There is no one to listen to neither him nor his devastated heart. So, he befriends the tiny Martian who is a visitor to this dystopia.

The protagonist pleads to him and asks him to put him out of his misery. He cries out and thinks that the tiny Martian could save his life. The Martian knows the Universe and assures the protagonist that he need not fear. Destiny will take care of him for there is a soul for every soul. The tiny Martian disappears after he has done his duty.

I truly apologize for the absence in posting this poem. The utter truth of this poem is that life is not a question. I believe! I believe in everything! The world today needs the tiny Martian more than ever. I honestly think that the tiny Martian was a product of my heart. He appeared in a time of need. There is a Martian in all our hearts.
I was inspired by the song: Death of a Martian by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Information:

All these photos were taken in Malampuzaha, Palakkad which is a beautiful place is Kerala of Southern India. The place is heavenly and I was given a chance to photograph the scenery with my camera.

Photography too like poetry has been much more than just a mere hobby to me. It is passion. I fell in love with photography right when I was a child and I’ve used many cameras to experiment and figure out ‘how’ to capture beauty. I’m happy to announce that I’m still on that path. The journey matters more to me.

In Malampuzaha, I used my Canon EOS 450D D-SLR camera with a standard Canon 18-55mm lens.
