as you slowly reveal
me to myself
through every experience
may I only become
a heart that bleeds love
a soul that pours light

I love the idea of the match.When we light it we give it its life and then it dies. Maybe our life is the same but the time line is different.
Very true, happy to hear you could resonate 🙂 Many thanks!

I like “unravel” and combination of the picture of the match being unraveled as it’s life is spent shedding light!
“Man is a mystery. It needs to be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life unravelling it, don’t say that you’ve wasted time. I am studying that mystery because I want to be a human being.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Love getting howls back
It’s wonderful when the forest is alive
Loved it. “I met myself through you”

Shedding…..did I use the right word? Oh, why am I in such a Norwegian language-mode today…I meant to let out, or to get rid off……
This so gorgeously written, and I so agree with you dearest Himani. Only, if you should ever feel like shedding some darkness, there are lot of people to fill you up with Light again 🙂 🙂 Reveal me to myself, I love that! 🙂 Have an extraordinarily beautiful day! Lots of Love to you! 🙂
Aww aren’t you the sweetest!! Your pure heart and soul pours through your words and I sometimes wish you were physically around so I could hug you and squish you when you say such sweet things ❤ Appreciate your kind words and presence here, beautiful Line..you brighten up my day everytime you stop by xx

beautiful phrases that evoke love with a hint of pain (bleed love). Maybe like a rose? keep on painting these soulful poems. ❤
You see it too well, Brad. Loving the Divine is easier than loving a human 🙂 Your kind words and feedback are much appreciated..have a beautiful Sunday!
