A Year of Everything

Greetings dear reader,

On the 4th of June, 2014, I created another new blog called ‘stormywriter – A Written Dream’. I have a typical history of starting with new writing atmospheres but never controlling them. Eventually, I let my procrastination get the best of me.

This was different. I’m truthfully astonished to announce that stormywriter turns 1 year old!

Let me give you a brief on my year here:

My honest initial intention behind starting a poetry blog was to maintain all my poems online in an organised manner like a repertoire of some sorts.

I realized soon enough that this was not the case. stormywriter became my thought-bank; my feelings hub; my place to express. So, I started publishing my poems. One by one, I set off (sometimes at unearthly hours), spending my summer days eagerly hoping for the world to read and perhaps share my feelings.

I was tremendously inspired to write more for my exciting blog (I have published an article or two as well). I must admit that some of my poems can be found online as well on various other websites.

Personally, the year has been a maze for me. My poems will speak this out – loud and clear. There is a connection between my poems and me – They speak for me! That is my only style of writing. I write what I cannot say; what I cannot sometimes even think about. Poems are fueled by my imagination and real-life events but I promise you something, dear reader… I promise you that, every single stanza, line and word written comes from my heart.

As the summer heat slowly vanished and welcomed a cooler and comfortable winter, I had the opportunity to write some more poems for you. Long evening walks, cozy music-listening poses and thoughtful relationships with individuals takes your mind to strange yet plentiful places.

I welcomed the new year with awe and promise. I managed to publish some more work online.
Now, I sit here lost for words.
I have a mental clue that I started writing this blog about a year ago but as I checked the exact date, I truly felt that this post is vital for you and me.

This sums up my 1 year as stormywriter.

As of today (1st of June, 2015), I have published 24 poems and certain articles addressing opinions, interpretations and photography. 

Dear readers, followers and visitors, you have my love and gratitude. I am most thankful to you for eternity. You make me proud of stormywriter. Every single follow and comment makes my heart race and my chest swell with pride.

In Conclusion: 

To sum it all up, I am extremely happy and proud of stormywriter – my written dream.

I will definitely keep on writing and I hope to write a similar post next year.
Until then, I hope you read, enjoy and share your emotions with my poems. They are for you, dear reader.

Announcement: 

As an anniversary present (Yes, I get to use that word now), I am announcing that I will publish a new poem on the 4th of June, 2015. The poem is based on the mind’s journey towards an unknown yet understood realm. A timeless adventure of love and the strange. I hope you will enjoy it.

A Note to the Reader:

I bid you farewell from this post, dear reader. I hope you have enjoyed reading this story as well.

If you ever want to talk to me, perhaps give me something to write about or ask me more about myself, feel free to email me at: arjun.rajeev@hotmail.com or just leave a comment here.

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

#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

Information:

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 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
