#32. Pandemonium

Before the pandemonium ends,
You and I fell together,
Into the haze that we call love,
Until you and I disappear.

Before the pandemonium begins,
You took my hand closer,
To fall in love all over,
And embarking on a journey together.

Before the pandemonium continues,
You brought my vivid heart to a halt,
And latched on to my very soul,
Until time put us away from the other.

Before the pandemonium takes over,
You ran to keep up with my haste,
My tear drops glued us together,
Far far away yet so near, forever.

Before the pandemonium ends us,
You were etched on to my very soul,
As all I feared once has taken over,
And I loved you like never before.

 

Notes

I’m back, world. To truly understand Pandemonium, read and picture each verse from a different perspective. That is how it was brought to life. Imagine – our beloved protagonist, who is lost and confused, yet an honest troubadour who is completely baffled by this feeling of hysteria in his heart, is describing his emotions right now.

Pandemonium should essentially bring a parallel-universe vibe to your mind. I hope it does!

Thank you,

#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

A State of Mind

Dear portal in the sky,
Why don’t you let me through?
Into your evil eye
As you fade and fuse
Before the clouds take control
Of my meaningful muse
Why don’t you lead me through?
This world alive

I sold my soul a while ago
To a place that I called home
But every time that I cry
I see your evil smile
My heart aches with greed
As I fall beneath
Every sucker living away
While I dream a while

Before I carry myself away
I have nothing to hide
A single tear drop away
I see your face alive
My love has crashed and burned
Into the sorrows of hell
But my beautiful mind
Will live forever young

Notes

Those days always seem like a drag. Introspection takes you to different places and different times. Memories haunt your every single atom.

Trust yourself and your beautiful mind. Look at the skies above you.

Thank you,
Arjun

#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.

Notes

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,

Arjun

#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

Notes

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,
Arjun

#27. Thoughts

You were a feet apart

My heart beat tore my heart

Everything I wanted to say

Quickly burnt and faded away

 

Notes

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

#26. Fade Away

Where did you go?
I swear you were here
A minute ago
Standing beside me

I thought I saw you here
Your face and your smile
Almost brought back a tear
As if I cared

I must admit to you
That my heart went places
Dancing to a tune
Of your beauty

I am a nostalgic fool
Thinking only of you
Singing with no rule
Songs of our yesterday

Has love betrayed us both?
Maybe we did realize
There was always hope
For these two lost souls

To never be alone
Is what I pray
As we stand on our own
Before we fade away

Notes

A memory is all it takes. You are left with a glimpse into your past and another reality altogether. ‘Fade Away’ speaks this out as an adventure.

The protagonist remembers and catches onto a tiny speck of his memory. His dearly beloved. He is initially elated beyond possible words and is speechless and dazed. He quickly admits that it was a game that his mind had played on him.

He is reluctant to give up on that memory. He remembers her beauty, her love and everything about her. The songs he sang and tunes he hummed all hit him very quickly. He soon comes to reality and questions the ultimate reason for his current state. He wonders about her too.

The protagonist is a believer. He believes in destiny and all he prays for is satisfaction for himself and for her.

#25. A Lover’s Abomination: A Tale for Eternity

Greetings,

I am celebrating stormywriter’s 1st anniversary. Enjoy reading!

I

That day took me to another dimension,
A state of utter paranoia,
Filled with the questionable,
And everything your mind couldn’t comprehend.

I held onto my halo,
The people were all the same yet different,
Scared and ready to kill for themselves,
Has the world really lost the battle?

The force grew stronger,
And I felt my heart beat grow colder,
Your every desire still felt the same,
It was out of this world.

II

The worlds all have a sacred pact,
Happiness shared a common ground,
To be stolen and destroyed,
You get what you deserve.

I panicked as this was the end,
End of the light that I should ever see,
Everything that I believed in was crushed,
I think I felt your soul next to me.

I couldn’t hold back my tears,
Was I going to let you go forever, my dear?
I couldn’t breathe,
I couldn’t even dream.

III

I watched them drag my soul away,
Into their plethora of unknowns,
I lay there helpless,
Drowning in my sea of memories.

I felt a charmed presence next to me,
Everything stopped moving around me,
The world finally comprehended,
And stood still for me.

I will never forget that moment,
I felt your heart beat,
I felt your soul,
I felt happiness.

IV

They played with my memories,
I never let them take you away,
The lights had vanished by now,
I felt my ethereal soul wake up.

Almost as if I were where I belonged,
I was not a passer – by anymore,
My place was right here,
I knew what I wanted.

You made me realize it all, my dear,
The truth out there was oblivious,
But that does not matter anymore,
I’m with you here forever.

Notes

‘A Lover’s Abomination’ is a poem which is very special to me. The tale boasts a fictional background with non-fictional and realistic emotions.

The protagonist is standing in front of life itself. Confused, dazed and mind-numbed. He questions the unquestionable and wishes for nothing but peace and ethereal harmony. Love has kept his heart and mind at the edge of misery and satisfaction.

Right now, he is telling a tale. A tale which will blow your mind. A tale of hope, grace and love. He talks about a day in his benevolent life which turned his world upside down.

The protagonist is transported to another world altogether by an unquestionable magical force. He feels lost and starts to panic. But, deep inside he is calm. This strange world held frightened people who have given up on hope. He soon realizes that this world was never meant to be. It will all end soon for him.

During this journey, he remembers his love and how her soul stood by him, with him and for him. He even remembers how he felt her ‘heart beat’ after he was exiled and destroyed from there. The ending turns bittersweet as the protagonist has his world as just a tiny speck in him but he cares only for the future with the one who he loves the most.

I convey hope to you. Trust me when I confirm that happiness is around you. Stay strong, readers. Thank you for 1 amazing year!

Thank you,

Arjun

#24. Suddenly

I stopped living
I’m merely existing
For the sake of life
Life with no meaning

I find myself dreaming
Always and everywhere
Of a happy age
Of no sadness

All I want is peace
This need is killing me
Stabbing my heart
Every single second

I don’t fear the great unknown
Not anymore, you see
For I have seen it all here
Life has won over me

I abandoned hope down there
Along with my love
My heart can’t take it anymore
This pain is hard to ignore

My sudden breaths save me
For I believe it will help me
To discover what’s beyond
This living nightmare

Think twice when I’m there
For I’m not here forever more
My love is your love
And we’ll never be alone

Notes

What is a life with no satisfaction?
What is your happiness? There might not be answers to such questions but do what your heart tells in the right moment with no regrets.

‘Suddenly’ was written under the supervision of my introspective thoughts. Thinking of peace in all honesty. It tells you directly the thoughts of an irritated troubadour, the protagonist. All he wants is peace. Nothing more.

I hope it is everything you wanted and more.

Thank you,

Arjun

#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
