I know all about darkness.
It can keep you hidden,
when you don’t want to be seen
but there is no freedom
to be found from being invisible.
You can’t hide from your thoughts, they linger.
Do not be afraid to acknowledge
the unspoken words,
be vocal,
find your voice.

Appreciate the way that you feel things,
Appreciate that there will be moments without big wins,
Appreciate every single mood swing,
Appreciate the fact that it is just how your heart sings,
Appreciate the harsh and the high winds,
Appreciate your strong wings,
Appreciate that not everyone needs to be saved,
Appreciate the fallen and the brave,
Appreciate your day and how you spend it,
Appreciate the people who are present when you end it.

And Perhaps, we all love in the same way.
Sometimes with words,
Sometimes in silence.

Be careful who you give your heart to,
fire is not dangerous,
people that do not respect or understand it are.
Your heart should never be a reward
for the kind of person that wants the promotion
but is not committed to the cause.
There should be a spark
and that spark should turn into a raging fire.
If you find that you are constantly having to fan the flames,
in the hope that they will never fade,
then it is energy misspent.
Energy that belongs to you.

Do not allow yourself
to become lost
to negative thoughts.
You are not alone
in your level of thinking.
Things might seem impossible right now
but finding your voice
and asking for help
is the first step
on the road to recovery.

I will not be a hearty meal that you feed on
as though I am just something to be consumed
until your level of hunger is satisfied.
I am more than that.
When you dine at my table,
there is an expected level of behaviour,
if you cannot comply,
do not expect a feast.

I have danced with you,
the world paused,
and in that moment,
we were finally free.
I have held you,
but my arms can’t seem to forget,
the way forever feels.
I have loved you,
you have loved me too,
although rivers may flow,
at different speeds,
in the end,
they always return,
to the sea.

‘Familiar tides.’

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.
