[Poetry] Bleeding Lines

I never could see her soul through her eyes—
They were thick opera curtains that never budged,
Never giving light a chance to pierce through.

But light always finds a way—
Illuminating her veins down to her fingertips,
Until every word she wrote breathed anew.

That is how I learned to read her soul—
Hidden in the starlight of her bleeding lines,
Every word whispering, “I’ve been looking for you.”

  1. “but light always finds a way” is amazing! through your words her bleeding lines take a new form Jade! I am always in awe of how you choose your words that resonate with my soul, “Hidden in the starlight of her bleeding lines,” – especially this one – it’s like you could see through the plexiglass of my hidden identity.
