we keep a cache of forgotten relics:
an assortment of afterthoughts
secrets stored in jade-stained eyes
a box full of yesterdays
and all the things we left behind

an oath in dragon script decorates her skin
it ripples like soft rain beneath black lace,
a storm of letters and lines luring you in
with the magic that is buried in them
they pin you down in back rooms
lit up by the blood moon’s shine
i watch your hands digging for truth
beneath thin layers of walls
you harvest sweet dreams and red velvet wishes,
fingers parting waves of copper strands
meant to keep no one out
she watches with bated breath
as you dance along her curves,
plucking the wicked words from her bones,
the ones that leave you both trembling
her eyes look like pools of electric blue
and she welcomes you to swim in her inner seas,
to dive into the depths of her mystery,
her fire and l...

they were built from the soil,
carving pathways where water flows
into the veins of the future
we exist in their bones,
where mountaintops touch ocean depths
they created us long before
our dreams were ever formed,
a divination of untamed nature
decades in the making,
a shining expanse of wilderness
taking up shelter in our souls
we contain pieces and parts
of their ink-stained hearts,
moments and memories
and mysteries from within our ancestors
written inside the thin cracks of city walls,
screaming out from the silence
but we do not listen
we hover on the edges of remembrance,
but we never learn,
too hellbent on our self-destruction to notice
the map full of warnings
we refuse to heed
(w...

And he always knew it was her all this time but she never truly believed she could be that important to anyone in this cruel heartless world. So she flew away, convinced that she carried a blackened heart within her chest when it was always made of pure gold. @PLECCA

Sometimes, the more similar two people are, the more couples will tend to clash, but the more differences they share, the harder it can be to understand one another and feel connected to each other. @PLECCA

The truth will always hurt because it exposes you to the fact that your idea of reality was always just a fantasy. @PLECCA

If you live your life constantly seeking new short-term thrills, you will fall hard for those who are only entertained by you and do not love you. When you become aware of the type of person who is moved by your soul, your heart will create permanent adrenaline and you will experience long-term love. @PLECCA

People tend to make up their minds based on how they feel about what you said and will ignore what you are trying to tell them. That is because they are attached to their beliefs and are unable accept that the opposite of what they believe in their hearts may in fact be true. @PLECCA

After being betrayed, you may believe that giving all of your heart to one person is like jumping out of a plane without a parachute, but sometimes, the love of your life is waiting for you to take that risk. @PLECCA

I see the heavens in your smile
My paradise in this troubled life
If I could only tell you
What you’ve done for me
And how much your love
Has helped me see
I’ve changed for the good
No more fear, no more doubt
I trust what this love is all about
So I bow to you, a humbled king
Surround by the love
Of his beautiful Queen

I would like you to know that it is not that you are too much and too intense for them, it is always that they have too little of a personality for you. @PLECCA

we slip down steep steps,
following a path of shell and stone,
sinking into spaces where mermaids roam,
all our past beginnings buried deep
somewhere far away from shore
and here we are,
our thrill-seeking souls searching,
on a quest to uproot them up again,
as if digging up those old stories
will bring us peace,
as if this dangerous discovery
will provide pleasure to our amorous hearts
but all thats left within that wreckage
is a withering love that holds us hostage,
leaving us to drift in the destruction
(we cannot create a future
if we keep swimming in the same mistakes)

in the next county over,
there is a giant causeway
shaped like a four-leaf clover
i follow its twist and turns,
a journey of madness ending in
a slow descent
into a city made for leaving
yet, i just can’t seem to stay away

When you do not have good control over your emotions, your mood will always control the amount of happiness you experience in your relationship. You will feel powerless, vulnerable and unable to love your partner now matter how much you try to love them. @PLECCA

You will have dark days;
they will cling to you
in an attempt to smother your light.
Fight back.
Shine bright.

Be different.
Be you.
The real diamonds are often seen,
sat proudly amongst the stars
in the night sky.
They have learnt,
in order to shine,
you don’t always have to depend on the sun.

     to show her
     how to live
     and he needed someone
     to show him
     how to love.  -N.R.Hart

The love of your life never questions their commitment to you. They will never ask for a break from you or ever consider leaving the relationship.  This person will fully understand how important and unique you are compared to everyone else they have ever come across before. @PLECCA

There are those who would rather burn themselves than invite someone into their lives who can put out the flames and ease the turmoil they experience from within. That is because once you are comfortable near the fire, you develop an attachment to the protective barrier of smoke around you. @PLECCA

we eat worry
with yesterday’s leftovers,
anxiousness swallowed down
with a bit of bread
that we bought with loose change
found between seat cushions
years of empty pockets
have left us accustomed
to its stale taste
it will be another long day today
the poems will have to wait
there is rarely time for writing anymore
if we aren’t working
our time is stolen by daily chores
and doctor appointments
on the rarer days,
when the quiet greets us,
our minds are still consumed
with this sense of foreboding
we can’t seem to escape
it’s rather suffocating,
always falling short of thriving
most days, we’re barely surviving
our wallets are paper thin
and the coffers are empty
our hearts are full though,
a...
