Brother Nero  "I’ll fade away and classify myself as Obsolete Delete Delete Delete"

Your heart is like a tree that grows wildflowers on it. No fringe, cherry or tulips; just wildflowers. Your heart is an evergreen tree that blooms just not during springs but throughout the year, perennially. And when you bloom with all your might, tourists visit you to spectate this majestic sight.

But then we humans are just driven by our instincts to destroy everything that's beautiful. And when we could destroy this earth, why wouldn't we try to destroy you. The tourists, they pluck your flowers one by one, hoping to take them home. So that they could show it to their friends, put up pictures on social media and maybe keep the flowers in vases. But there would always be a greedy human who would cut down a branch or maybe the entire tree, hoping to grow one in their garden thinking you are generous enough.

But don't you worry, it will take some time. But you will grow back and bloom with all your might. For how much ever we humans might try to break you down, you are the tree that will never fall to the ground. And while you grow back, use your brokenness and write poetry out of each branch, leaf and twig. For you have poetry inscribed in you, or how else would a tree grow wildflowers if it wasn't for the art flowing inside of you.

So next time some one cuts you down, don't lose hope because you can't grow wildflowers now. You will soon grow wildflowers again, you will heal yourself again.

The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly"

I have been
Sitting here in a dark room, alone
Since what feels like
Centuries.
And now I am
So used to
This feeling of loneliness,
That it no longer feels like
Something I hate.
Instead it feels like
A person who is
A mystery, no more.
Loneliness now
Feels like home.

Do you still talk about your love for the orange hued skies, the songs by The Doors? Do those dark poems penned by Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson, still remind you of my mind? Do you still love the sound of falling raindrops and do they still remind you the sound of my guitar strings?

Or do you now talk about the blue skies, the warmth of summer and the songs of love? Do you now prefer love poems and happy songs? Have you replaced the sound of the guitar with the sound of bagpipes?

I, I still lock myself in my mind, listen to the darker rhymes and dance to the tunes of the melancholic music. Read the same poems over and over again. For I find myself in those words the poets wrote for someone else. I still play the same guitar, even though the strings are now rusty and about to break apart. I can't let go of all the things that remind me of you and I am still stuck at the same place where you left me.

I wonder if you remember me at all or was I too easy to be replaced and you me forgot as soon as you left. And I wonder when you look at the nightsky do the stars look scattered all over it or do they align to form my face.

"Thought I ran into you down on the street
Then it turned out to only be a dream
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I can't recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been"

I hope you are better now. Better than how you were when you were with me. I hope you don't cry anymore about your existential crisis, about your addiction issues and about everything that used to bother you. And the flowers in the vases, the long cigarette drags and late night talks don't remind you of me. I hope you don't intoxicate yourself to the level where you don't remember anything about the night. I hope you don't drown in melancholy anymore. I hope you don't talk to the skies anymore when you miss me.

I hope you have found a better replacement for me. Someone who loves you more than I do. Someone who is deserving enough of your love. Someone who doesn't only listen to your problems but is also successful in making you believe that you are stronger than what you think you are. Someome makes you feel beautiful unlike me who could only say it in words.

I hope you are in a better place. I hope you have finally found the happiness you seek.

I hope you don't miss me at all.

She is wild
Like the flowers growing
On the edges of cultivated land,
Standing out amidst
A mass of shoots and plants

She grows raw,
Untouched by the impurities
Of the lowly souls
That wish to uproot it,
Not constrained by their wants
And needs,
Her rawness provides the beauty
Which only the inner eyes can see

The wild flower grows in the brown clay
just to add beauty to what
otherwise feels dull and grey
For, how much ever
Gracefulness one may hold
The kohl will forever exemplify it
Many folds

We were born
With hope flowing in our veins
But the wait for
Others to act on our behalf
And the regular injections of hatred
Had it all replaced

We live for love
We told ourselves
At a consistent rate
But the when we found it
We let it slip from our hands
And blamed it on our fate

We kept going to the doctors
to heal our broken heart
But then we forgot
That if pills could heal
we would have never required art

And when we die
After struggling to live
All our life
We won't be alone inside our graves
For regret will always be with us
And so will
All the unfulfilled dreams we craved

So now,
When you have the time
Get off your armchairs,
Stop relying on fate
Go out and reject the hatred
Because no one ever will
Fight your wars for you
And if you won't stand for
What you think is right
No one ever would
.

- The Obsolete Poet
//Stand up and fight//

"You gotta fight!
Fight for your life!
Until you die!
Fight for your rights
Endless searching
In this cyberspace
All is turning
Into a disgrace"

Let's just sit here
In the dark room
Inside my head

The room has a jukebox
Which plays on its own
And off late,
It only plays
Those melancholic tracks
By Alice in Chains and Johnny Cash

Let's just sit here
In the dark room
Inside my head

And just stare
Out of the window panes
It's too hazy to see
But then,
It will make you imagine
Things, unseen

Let's just sit here
In the dark room
Inside my head

Until some day
I finally decide
To step out of the room
And visit the world beyond
The window panes
But it won't be soon

It will be the day
When the light on the outside fades
And the world as dark
As the room in my head

But until then
Let's just sit here
In the dark room
Inside my head
And await the day
The world is dead
Just like I am
Inside my head
.

You can surely love them with everything you have, but you'll never be enough.

For in their head they have built glass castles in the sky and trapped themselves inside one of the thousand rooms. Because once a nomad promised them that if they did so, the nomad will come on a flying horse and rescue them. And then they would live a fairy tale life together in the glass castle. And just like the prince and princess in a fairy tale, even they would have a happily ever after. And they, innocently believed it all, down to the very last letter.

And by the time they realised that all the promises were fake, it was too late. And they were left stranded in the room without any means to run away.

And you, you happened to pass by and fall in love with the girl in the glass castle on the sky. So you dared the sunburns and the hungry nights while making a rope long enough to scale the sky. And you finally belayed the rope on the window, you thought you would finally rescue them. And then maybe you would live a forever together, in a mud house with freedom rather than the castle that imprisons them.

And look up at them, half way on the rope, you see them putting down the rope. And they tell how they wished you came on a flying horse and not climb on a rope. And you think it's sad and funny at the same time that how blinded a person can be. For they await their rescuer to come on a flying horse but could never see the efforts you put in to build the rope.

And you, you realise it the hard way that you can surely love them with everything you have, but you'll never be enough.

Me and Abhi, we were on the terrace of his building. It was a beautiful place to be especially because of the view it had. Lush green hills on one end and the outline of the city on the other. We were busy talking about how the contrast is exhilarating to see, when it started to rain all of a sudden. I quickly ran under the water tank to save myself from getting drenched in the rains, while Abhi stayed back to drench in it.

We were afterall a little different from each other. He loved chai while I was a coffee person. But then we never let that come between our friendship for we both understand each other's choices perfectly or atleast that's what I believe.

And as soon as the rains stopped, a wet soaking Abhi came to me. I thought he wanted to tell me for the umpteenth time about how much he loved getting dreanched in the rains.

But rather he asked
.
"Did you notice what I did?"
.
"I am sure I didn't", I replied in continuation.
.
"I feel the water cycle is just like the relationship cycle"

It rained just now and the rains make even the simplest of the souls transform into a philosophical baba as if they had just returned after completing their doctorate in philosophy. And Abhi had a history for breaking into philosophical discussions out of the blue. And I loved that part of him for it gives me a chance to peep into his beautiful mind. And I couldn't miss this chance too. So I continued the conversation and asked him .
.
"And how is that?"
.
"The warmth of the person we love along with every intricate detail about them, evaporates the residual feelings we have left in our heart for our former partners. And just like the sun, it dosen't necessarily evaporate it completely but enough for the small clouds to form above your head. And with every detail you notice, a new cloud is formed which stack up with the older ones. And one day it's big enough to pour down as rains and fill your heart again."
.
"I guess that explains why love usually fades out from a relationship and in your metaphor, the clouds dry up. But what about those relationships which last long?"
.
(Continued in caption)

It has been quite some time since I have started to see things from a perspective usually different than mine. I have been stepping into shoes that I thought were too big for me or would never fit me. But now that I am wearing it, I feel they were made for me.

It's not that the world suddenly changed its shape, the sky turned black and the stars faded in the clouds' haze. But rather I feel the world always was the same, only my eyes couldn't see the hues that I now do. I used to feel that world was coloured in shades of red, yellow and blue. But now I finally know that the world is nothing but black and white, and every other shade is just an illusion for our eyes.

The humans who used to feel like home, provide warmth to my soul have now all turned cold. They converted the summer's noon to a winter night out of the blue. But now that I look at it, I feel I was always their favourite vacation home. A house where they would visit only when they needed a change. And then forget about my existence all over again.

I have learnt to detest the day and fall in love with the night. For my demons show their faces in the light and in the darkness they run away to hide.

So now, I wait for the day to end and the night to begin. For I have finally understood the night is where the darkness ends and the day is where the darkness grows beyond ends.

1. Watch those movies, series and animes that you have been procrastinating for years.

2. Listen to songs that you have forgotten about and songs that you never heard of.

3. Write poems everyday about pain, about love and about the skies.

4. Watch the nightsky but don't drown in the sea of melancholy it brings along with it.

5. Watch, feel and write about the beauty you have never felt or seen.

6. Stop blaming yourself for everything.

7. Stop feeling worthless.

8. Laugh.

9. Smile.

10. Live.

There is so much of pain
Hidden deep inside your voice
That it reminds me of Johnny Cash
And all his songs that I rejoice

There is a dark side of you
That you keep hidden from me
And it is fascinating
Just like a Pink Floyd song, so serene

And when I put together
Every intricate detail about you
I can't help but notice that I am
Reminded about
The entire discography of Pearl Jam

All of this makes me ask you one thing
I will write peoms about you
But will you sing them for me?
Because if we combine
The art in you
With the artist in me
I am sure we will form
The best band this generation will ever see
