#30.Everyday

Everyday,
My beloved life is a chore,
I sit and stare for ages to come,
Into this blur of my future.

I stopped,
Just like my heart,
Waiting for you,
Waiting for love.

My minute existence,
Our epic romance,
My infinite boredom,
I’m confused.

Where are you?
You just vanished,
It’s like I sold my soul,
For this insanity.

It still hurts,
Yet I await you,
One day,
Everyday.

 

Thank You,

Arjun Rajeev

#29.Explode

Our eyes met one last time and all I could see was the broken reflection of a kindred soul.

My heart split into a million pieces like the glasses which shattered so great.

A myriad of broken thoughts as I wished upon a shooting star to take me away.

To an unknown where unrequited love was hidden from the troubadour so brave.

This game of monotonous affection took my soul away on a rollercoaster ride.

Beyond the moon to a heavenly hearth hidden deep in the wonderlands of my mind.

She was a part of this unanticipated journey involving a broken heart and subtle lies.

Time creates a virtual reality where my soul just craves for every bit of hers.

I keep reminding myself of the miseries yet destiny refuses to concede this loss.

Reality quickly stabbed the subtle remains of my cold and eager heart.

She walked away and left me stranded with my own trivial thoughts.

I knew that this was the end because her tears made me feel incomprehensible pain.

The world fulfilled its desired conspiracy and I lost my only companion in this solitude.

An inevitable adventure with her fulfilled all my tiny yet loud desires longed by a lone mind.

Her memory does not exist in me anymore.

She does.

I broke down in front of the Universe.

I exploded.

Information:

The entire world was shaken today by the acts committed. I pray for humanity.

‘Explode’ is a poem that was written sometime ago. I opened my heart and soul into it. My emotions completely match every single word written.

A memory stood out over another. A scene to be played over and over in his beautiful mind. This is what our protagonist thought about.
He knew nothing about this at all. He was lost, confused and even scared about it. ‘Love’ was a mystery.
He trusted his kind heart everyday but he was simply nervous to enter this new arena. A beautiful girl made him smile and be a part of a new journey. Life would never be the same.

Time told him the truth and he now questions everything. The world has conspired against him and his heart. He is running away. His time was running out. His every tear drop bore much power and contained tiny bits of his heart.
No one bothered to care. He was his only companion now.

Eventually, our protagonist surrendered to the greater Universe.
He bowed down and said a prayer. His precious memories were his and his only. No one could ever touch those. Not even the Universe. He smiled and waved a weak goodbye. He exploded.
She was still a part of him.

Thank you,

#28.Strangers

You and I, my dear
We walk towards each other
As time freezes
Memories come crashing
Down on our souls

The pain exceeds
My very soul
Towards a known time
Of love and agony
Between you and me

Suddenly everything blurs
As you fade
Away from my reality
Only to realize
We were always strangers

Information:

Everything is crazy. Life is beyond crazy. My soul exonerates madness. One of a romantic flavour. I’ve known this forever. ‘Strangers’ is mere reality which has shocked me to my bones.

The protagonist is a walking travesty on a dull land. He questions the bare existence of romance on the blue planet. One day, his life suddenly involves his past love. His memories come crashing down again and it hurts him to the brink of insanity.
She merely walks past him.
Is he a ghost?
Does he know how to disappear completely?
Are all those memories just special to him? Weren’t their souls ever meant to be together?
The protagonist is scared. Scared to believe. Scared to love. Scared to live.

I apologize for the absence from publishing poetry here. I hope you enjoy this, dear reader.

Thank you,

#27.Thoughts

You were a feet apart

My heart beat tore my heart

Everything I wanted to say

Quickly burnt and faded away

 
 

Perhaps that is the true essence of reality. That the heart’s desire is merely an understatement in this frail world. You question the questions everyday and are left astounded with what you intend to perceive and what you actually do believe in.

I will be away on a short holiday and hope everyone is well.

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

#23.Daydreaming Delusions

A beautiful girl can turn your world to dust.

She still keeps me awake.
Thoughts of everything about her, disturb me beyond possible words.
I try.
What’s the point?
I ask myself,
Where is my mind?
My heart needs her,
Or am I wrong?
These questions have no answers.
My lonely soul can’t be alone,
Do I want to fall in love again?
With her?
I am falling,
Down on my hands and knees.
Put me out of misery, dear.
You have my heart.
You have me.
Where is the cure?
The one you speak of so great.
Broken hearts rarely lie,
You were that lie.
I need you now more than ever.
I think so.
Are you miserable too?
I still remember your smiles,
In the wind and in the cold.
Our hands touched for seconds,
I was in love.
That’s it!
Erase my mind,
Take me back.
I beg you.
Take me back,
To where you and I belong.
Please.
To that wonderful time,
Our hearts intertwined,
Together as one,
Trying to win the world.
My words to you,
I still remember strong.
As we live on,
I will think of you.
You turned my world to dust.
How can I forget you?
Maybe a day will arise,
Our tears in unison,
As we forget the world around us,
Together.
In each other’s arms.
Until then, my dear,
I won’t ask for much,
Give love to the world.
Stay a confused rebel.
Never give in,
To life so compelling.
And know one thing,
I care about you.
Always,
Always,
Always.

The end.

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

#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

#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
