#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


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…”

I see you aloud
Never inconspicuous to me
You make life full
Being most cardinal
I desire you only
Love’s never loose
Walking past those shadows
Pairs being delightful
None so compassionate
I can never let go
Nothing ever between us
Trust is but a choice
Together we are one
That one compound

‘Compound’ was one of my first poems. It comes right from the heart. Human beings are in search of constant companionship. Love is a form of companionship. It is a first-person poem about the idea and feeling of love.

The protagonist is anyone on this planet earth. Your average Joe or Jane for that matter who has actually found the better half. Being a compound means being one unit and sharing all the happiness and bitterness with the lover. They would cross mountains and jump over clouds just to reach each other. That is what life and relationships are all about.
