Sometimes, you must experience a breakdown in order to break down all of the things that are breaking you down. Once your life feels like a mess with nothing but darkness and rain, you will begin to focus your energy into alleviating the stress and finally healing the pain. @PLECCA

Some people leave in search of the love they do not find within themselves because this kind of self-love cannot be found while trying to love someone else. @PLECCA

I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

I long for you.
If you are the fire,
I am a forest of hope,
eagerly awaiting your flame.
Rage like the wind,
let it carry you to me,
so that we may burn together.

It's been more than a week of unending work - hardly any sleep and random munchies for meals. "Don't know how long I can go on like this", I utter at last to my friend, breaking down in sheer exhaustion. It's the middle of the week and none of us have enough time for cranky conversation or consolation, and so we hang up in another couple of minutes. It's been ages since the Sun decided to show all its might - scorching heat and skyrocketing temperatures with no respite in the form of winds! What could possibly be worse than this!

But alas! The last couple days showed just what can be worse: enormous grey clouds playing hide-and-seek with the sun! So now with the heat is the humidity as well ...

I have a long list of things that make me happy and a longer one that don't. But since I'm pretty good at segmenting, my focus remains on all things bright and beautiful. So here are my top seven joys, in that order:

1. Dance: both Indian classical and modern Western
2. Reading: give me a crime thriller and watch my surroundings melt away
3. Chocolates: anything above 55% cocoa content is always welcome
4. Conversations: deep and meaningful ones with a little humour sprinkled across; preferably with my family though, and probably close friends
5. Coffee: a black, sugar free cuppa is all I need to get in the "zone"
6. Writing and Calligraphy: some times content and at others the fonts take my...

Can you tell me this?

Why is it that we strive for freedom from all shackles - mental, financial, psychological - and yet when that freedom is just around the corner, we feel more scared of it than we've ever feared anything else?

Is it just the trepidation aroused by the change that's to come, or is it that we were only in love with the idea of freedom and not freedom itself? For, to be truly free, wouldn't it mean to be rid of all attachments, expectations and dependence? To be able to live as we wish without being burdened by the constructs of society. And are we really ready to be in that state of existence?

We're supposedly social beings, with an inherent urge for association - with p...

#582 - ‘Lost’
 
I walk, without fear, towards the
promise of you. Following every
flower, in bloom, that still carries
your scent.
You always exist in all the places I
cannot reach; they hold on to your
beauty in ways I have only dreamt of
because all that I own are dreams.
Dreams of you.
Dreams of us.
I often find myself overwhelmed by
dreams, hoping one day I will wake,
and you’ll no longer be a dream to me.

The best way to get rid of sadness is through becoming angry at yourself. You must become so angry about losing control over your emotions that you no longer allow everyone and everything around you dictate how you feel. The angrier you become, the faster  your repressed emotions will give you the clarity and strength you need to be happy again. @PLECCA

Love is only love to you if you are able to perceive it as love. Someone can love you with all their heart, but if you think their affection is being given to you out of desperation, you will believe they are simply seeking attention from you. @PLECCA

Will we ever become united without focusing on our differences and the color of our skin? Will true love take over and ever win? Will society stand up to help achieve this mission? Will we ever love each other without preconditions? Will we ever reach the point where we can live and breathe freely without preconceived suspicions? @PLECCA

Be you.
You have got nothing to prove to the world,
the fires that burn will always burn,
respect is not given,
it is taught,
those that take the time to listen,
will earn something that cannot be bought.

Battle cries are heard
Across the world
Injustice ends with us today
No more pain and suffering
Or those eyes of judgement
We are building a brand new way
Peace wins out
Over the anger I’ve felt
As I look at my reflection today
But as the world burns
You’ll understand the words
Don’t compare to the sacrifices of yesterday

And I know that there is thunder making noise within your heart that makes you wonder from the start, will you stay together or commit a blunder and fall apart. @PLECCA

If you are only in a relationship until you have received enough from it, it was not true love, it was an opportunity to drain someone out of the love they offered you. @PLECCA

Once you gain clarity in your mind and peace in your heart, the path towards your soulmate becomes more apparent. But if you continue to hold on to many toxic emotions, your heart and mind will struggle to see into anybody’s soul clearly. @PLECCA

we are all elegant fury
and dismantled dreams
we rage
against a broken system,
caged birds kept behind
manmade borders
we sought the gardens
of tomorrow
and found ourselves bound
to the mistakes of yesterday,
unwilling accomplices
in the age of imposters
and now, we are addicted
to prozac promises and xanax lies
because we can’t swallow
the bitter truth
that change will never happen
if we can’t break free

i’ve always been fascinated
by the kind of art others don’t appreciate,
the poetry etched in haste on the bathroom stall,
the graffiti scrawled on passing train cars
i suppose i love the abstract, the undefined,
the stuff we share thinking no one will notice
(but still hoping they will)
we shed layers of pain with ink and paint
baring the real ness that lies underneath it all
there is so much power in the words we never said
because we were too afraid of being judged
that’s when we put our heart and soul on exhibit
behind the grit and grime
truth runs free

Do not turn to blame all men or women after a breakup. Everyone else is not at fault for your failed relationships. The harsh truth is that you are the only one responsible for choosing to love people who continue to fail you. @PLECCA
