I’ve watched you walk away
And turn your back on love
I’ve stayed way too long
Trying to convince myself
Of a future between us

I drowned you in my love
and felt betrayed
when you said
you couldn’t breathe.
That’s when I learned
not to give people
so much of me.

I buy flowers for no one.
roses. pink. baby’s breath.
eucalyptus and sticky fingers.
something beautiful to look at.
something to live with me
for just a little while.

You’re always right on time
Warming my heart with just a smile
You always know when to reach out
And check on this soul of mine

You came into my life
like fire and rain
igniting my soul
a beautiful storm
lightning and thunder
nothing will ever
burn out this flame...

my spirit pronounces power

‘i wander, i wonder, i wish’

i am a poet falling endlessly,

following a tangled trail of time

into the beauty of the ethnosphere

i watched her
waking from hibernation,
neither ghost nor girl
but hovering somewhere in between,
a born wildflower drifting
so i taught her
to dance in rays of sunlight,
to run beneath the rain
and now,
she is anointed with energy,
illuminated from within
she goes up in flames
and emerges with wings
she becomes the magic
that keeps me wild

How many times did I try to replace your curses with apologies?  You see, I tried to see only the good in you. When you did something bad, I quickly changed it in my mind to “you’re having a bad day “. I made excuses for you. For everything single you did to hurt me, I made an excuse. I did this because I feared the moment I had to walk away. I feared being alone. I feared doing everything on my own. I feared the end so much that it didn’t allow me to move forward or realize all the things that were so wrong between us.
Now, after so many years that have passed, I see both of our failures. It’s unfortunate that  somewhere we drifted so far apart. The determination we had was superb- but w...

Some things take time
Move softly, move
gracefully
Be gentle with yourself
Listen to your soul...
For it knows how to heal
You.

Sometimes you must trust the universe and embrace the journey,
even if it means traveling to places you’ve never been before.
The open road never judges those that cross its path.
All the trappings that once held you back will be dust that settles in the distance, a distance that you control.
What matters is that you matter too.
Do not be afraid of the unknown - you will be in the company of strangers, each on their own personal journey with their own personal baggage.
The places you visit, the people you meet, will aid your regrowth but they will not define you as a person.
The moment you buy that ticket,
regardless of the cost,
that will be your defining moment.

Our minds control how our bodies respond to our environment no matter how good or out of shape we look on the outside. The emotions you suppress becomes the stress you express. @PLECCA

we speak in languages
that awaken the storm inside,
feathered touches
and lightning sighs
we move like hurricanes,
and we
c o l l i d e
like thunder
we rise
and fall again,
taking shelter
in the shadows
while the clouds rain down
l o v e,
skin kissed
by the rising mist
we exist
within the drops
of a downpour,
night floating into day,
a tsunami crashing into
sunshine
and silk sheets
we sleep
uninterrupted,
a tangled tempest
awaiting dawn
in the valley of the sun

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.

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
