this thing in my chest beats,

a winged creature threatening

to run, to run, to run (to e s c a p e)

and i keep asking myself

why I ever thought to cage it

you spend your mornings
with coffee and crosswords,
your afternoons
filled with dirt and digging,
the tilling of sandy soils
in a garden that gives back
there is such power
in the small things,
the shoots of plants that bloom
from seeds in sowed fields,
the energy of life and love
in hands that endeavor to provide

It is so sexy the way you perceive my soul as if you were made to decode my scars until one by one they disappeared.

I love that you live in my dreams,
and with every sunrise,
you unexpectedly fill my day with light.

If you’re reading this, our love is long gone. We may be strangers now but I think you sometimes feel as if I am laying close to your side. I can no longer comfort you from a distance but I hope you still remember some of the love we had for each other and can laugh at the silly moments we shared together. I would like you to use those memories to cheer yourself up whenever you feel down. I know you will one day find somebody that understands you in a way you have never been understood before. @PLECCA

I never want to be strangers again, we've been through so much
there's no way we can
just be friends,
if I saw you walking
down the street there's
no way I could pretend
that you didn't mean
the world to me,
Babe I'll love you til the end...

When somebody cries, it is not a sign of weakness. Being able to confront your emotions, experience the pain and heal from it is a sign of true strength. @PLECCA

When darkness comes
remember you are resilient.
You will find your way
by the moonlight.

I’ve given you
The best parts of me
And I’m afraid, fearful
That it’s all been in vain
That what we feel
Is no longer the same
No place to put the blame
When the fire in our hearts
Can’t be tamed
When the fire of my soul
Can’t be caged
When the whispers in my ear
Call out a different name

         You and I.
         Our souls forever
         tangled
         like the wolf
         is to the moon.

Be the kind of woman
that will walk through fire
and never get burned.

winter rolls off my shoulders,
replaced by a balmy spring
and the sticky press of uncertainty
we drift through a haze of days
where seasons waver,
as do hearts,
both unable to shake the feeling
of unease
this hot air clings,
making love to skin that still aches
for a breeze

(we’ll soon be swallowed up by the heat)

fingers crossed behind their back,
lips filled with whispered secrets,
eyes consumed by luck and lies
the queen of hearts and the king of greed,
they rule in visions of verdigris
the monarchy of anarchy
engulfed in a crown of flames,
all copper stained and weathered by chaos
they twist and bind our strings of fate
(mischief running rampant through their veins)

No. 529
You will get to a point
where you will outgrow certain types of people.
Don’t be afraid of being a windmill when the hurricane hits,
we all pass through this life at different speeds.
You have passion and ambition;
you must never apologise or make allowances for people
who do not share your vision.
It is not your responsibility to open their eyes
to your way of thinking,
if they cannot see your personal growth,
it is because they choose not to see it.
You have a choice too.

‘Flowers always thrive in good soil.’

her eyes are home to silent seas,
a touch of azurite and aquamarine,
a cool gaze filled with depths you can’t fathom
but that soul of hers
is all moonlight and sakura blossoms,
the moment when winter meets spring,
feathers of snow and brushstroke blooms
painting her heart in hopeful hues
she is an garden of beauty on the ocean floor
daring you to explore

Celebrating the failures
Smiling at the stumbles
Laughing on the inside
Chuckling at all my struggles
Lost in the oceans
In the seas of doubt
While questioning my purpose
What’s life really about?

On God’s ears
My prayers have fallen
I never asked to be with you
Never asked Him for you and me
All I ever wanted
Was for your soul to be free

i once chased disaster
under bruised skies
and thought his kiss of chaos
tasted like love
he buried his heart behind walls
of concrete and glass,
and i foolishly thought
i could break them down
i was determined to be a lighthouse,
to guide him through the snowstorm,
but his soul was the cause
of that deathly cold,
and i was destined to freeze
in his icy touch

pages
with yellowing edges,
memory’s sepia stained heartache
stored on silk linings in an old oak chest
beside trinkets and vintage polaroids,
and music filled with lyrics
that carry an underscore of sorrow
i am bound
in the ropes and chains of yesterday,
drawn in by the things i’ve outgrown:
records
ribbons
you
stories that hide behind the silence
that lingers here
in this space
in this hush
in this
emptiness
