~pisces

the saltwater holds all her memories. like waterfalls
her thoughts cascade into melting imagery
reflections and crystals over the sea
she is so romantic with the night sky that she will never love the day. ocean’s daughter. the container of mystic waters. her pain haunts her. the howls she hears that nobody else can.
the feeling that she is just too much, but then again, nothing at all. in the river of her veins i can swim to treasure chests. i am lead into oceanic heaven, i am free of my body and my worries. i am following a sovereign of the sea

‘African Lillie’s’ by WAK

“SHE SITS POISED & REGAL, TRANQUIL BUT STRONG
HER MAHOGANY SKIN, BEING KISSED SLOWLY BY THE SUN
HER BEAUTY TASTE OF HONEY, HER LIPS ARE BEE STUNG
GAZE UPON HER TOO LONG, YOU WILL HEAR NEGRO SPIRITUALS BEING SUNG
WRAPPED IN SILK SOAKED IN PEACHES, THE SWEETNESS OVERFLOWS
HER PRIDE SWELLS LIKE A SEED & BEGINS TO GROW, WHILE LILLIES OF PURITY, BASK IN THE GLOW
A CROWN OF LOCS, ADORN HER HEAD, SOMETIMES REFERRED TO, SIMPLY AS DREADS
THE EVIDENCE OF ANCESTORS, AS STRONG AS THE SEA
SHE LONGS TO BE NO OTHER…SHE LONGS ONLY TO BE

If you look at the bottom left corner of the screen, you’ll see Maya has sheet music for Girl From Ipanema. This is a jazz standard that is actually typically sung by women, no pronouns changed. (My favorite version is Amy Winehouse.)

Anyway, the first verse goes 
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walkin’
And when she passes
Each one she passes goes ‘Ahh”

This, I think is referring to multiple girls liking Lucas. Not saying everyone, but it’s basically saying that Maya isn’t the only one in the running, that she has someone in the way.

Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead not at me

This is pretty obvious. It shows that though Maya has feelings for him, he is oblivious and cannot have him.  (There’s another verse but it’s basically just a reiteration of the first verse.) 

So this wasn’t very mindblowing, but it’s just another little clue planted by the writers

[EDIT: So I got a lot of notes about why this is about rilaya rather than lucaya. The reason I spoke about lucaya was because I thought the narrative route the show is heading down gave evidence for them, and because this is traditionally a song where gender is typically not important/irrelevant. I also thought that once gender was cast aside, the lyrics made sense to be about Lucas. That said, I see so much evidence for rilaya, especially because Riley has a lot of suitors (Farkle, Lucas, Charlie) and maya wouldn’t think Riley would like her that way. Thanks for the feedback, I love widening my perspectives about my theories.) . @theowldetective

And I Love Her - Passenger

She’s a whistle on the wind
Feather on the breeze
Ripple on the stream
She is sunlight on the sea
She’s a soft summer rain
Falling gently through the trees
And I love her…

She’s cunning as a fox
Clever as a crow
Solid as a rock
She is stubborn as a stone
She’s a hardheaded woman
And the best one that I know
And I love her
Yeah well I love her

She’s as new as the springtime,
Strong as autumn blows
Warm as the summer
And soft as the snow
She’s a thousand miles from here
But she’s everywhere I go
‘Cause I love her

She loves me like a woman
She looks like a lady
She laughs like a child
And cries like a baby
I think that maybe she’s the one that’s gonna save me.

Drifting Souls

She knew it was brief
The moment empty
Except for delusional expectations
Of what it could lead to
She knew it would go nowhere
Not past tonight
Not even past this pub
Not even past this pint
It was an idea wrapped
In the body of a man
Weaved through the inner workings of his mind
His ideas and thoughts
So tempting and appealing
A meeting of broken minds
And drifting souls
Not yet lost
But rather at sea
As if floating on the turbulent
Riot of water
As the waves crashed and broke
Their souls were both unanchored
Searching for weight
And in each other
They found a brief,
Momentary life raft
On which to cling
So they spoke
Their eyes met and lingered
At times too long
At times not long enough
She felt that rush inside her stomach
As if the waves were now buoyant and welcomed
Her soul bounced happily on the sea
She hoped he felt the same
But she knew it didn’t matter
For it seemed unlikely to be
She reached her hand across the bar
Her fingers delicately grazing
The fabric of his shirt sleeve
Playing with its buttons
He let her fingers stay there
He suddenly grabbed her chin
With the ends of his fingers
And stared
Deeply
Purposefully
Longingly
Lovingly
Lost
Like his sea lost soul
Had found its anchor
Their noses pushed against each other
She felt the intimacy
So powerful it electrified her nerves
And he kissed her
Vigorously
With great purpose and conviction
The kind of kiss to end all doubt
And bring infinite hope
He pulled back
He let go
She sat back
He knew it was perfect
It was eternal
Yet it could never be
Stared into her green eyes
As he grabbed his coat
Running into the street
The cobblestones
Challenging his drunken step
As his warm
Enchanted breath
Hung frozen
In winter’s midnight air.

CS AU week
↳ day 1: alternative CS version | the pirate and the swan princess

(bare with me I wrote a big ass poem for this!)

Born from the most powerful magic of all
With curls of gold, eyes - a summer meadow
28 years ago the first cry of a princess was heard
But it was evil that welcomed her into the world
A black curse cast upon the little one
Turned her into a beautiful white swan

Tossed in the ocean by choice and fate
A pirate captain - 28 years in wait
With a heart dark and jaded
Or rather - lost since his light faded
‘Til he found an island among the turbulent sea
And on its shore a lone swan roaming free

The captain thought himself mad, then torn
For the swan could read his mind and he her own
But, every full moon, she was a princess again
Sending him away to sea to spare them the pain

For an year they suffered together
As she shed feather after feather
But upon the 13th moon, as the princess lay forlorn
She saw her pirate’s ship fall prey to a vicious storm

Diving among the darkness of sea
She begged “Come back to me”
Out of the water’s clutches she dragged them on shore
Lips pressing to his, praying to see his eyes once more

And that night under the silver moonlight
The world was at last set to right
The princess breathed life to her love, he-hope to her soul
As the curse was broken by the most powerful magic of all
