my own heart




i saw you.
i saw everything.
because poets see the dark
and dreamers see the light
but i saw your
     whole
      heart.

and it did not terrify me.

i had seen my own heart
nearly moments before
and the pitch black had smothered me.

i had realized i was human.

but the next moment
i realized He was God.

and the pitch black faded.
until it was remembered no more.
not nonexistent.
but forgotten

and there you were.
completely.
utterly.
human.

please forgive me,
i heard you weep.

i saw you.
in the shadow of your human
tear-stained face,
i saw you.

and i loved you still.

xx

  4. I have a bloggy question which you may or may not know the answer to. I noticed that you have a different profile picture, like when you comment, than the picture that shows up there on the right. How do you do that? I recently got rid of my blogger profile picture because it was just a teeny square beside my intro thingy (plus it wasn't a great pic), and instead just put a picture in my sidebar, but it's not a profile picture, so it doesn't show when I comment. So...do you know what I mean? Do you know how to fix this...?

    1. HAHA STEALING ADDY'S THUNDER BECAUSE I CAN. huhuhu.

      If you want to change your profile picture for the comments, go to your sidebar on blogger. Scroll down to "Settings" and then select "User Settings" It will show you an option between Google+ and Blogger. If you select the edit button under blogger, it will open a new tab that allows you to edit your profile. Scroll down to the profile photo and it should allow you to change.

      HOPE THAT HELPS.

      Basically the photos you put on your blog have nothing to do with the profile picture connected with your account.

    2. Aaaactually...I already knew all that you just told me how to do, but still, thanks for the help (even though you're not Addy XD)! Haha, I'm not the best at explaining, I don't blame you for not quite understanding. :P I know how to change my profile picture, and how to not have a profile picture, and how to edit my blogger profile and all, but I want to know how to HAVE a blogger profile picture without it showing on my blog, so that a picture OTHER than the little orange blogger picture shows when I comment. I've noticed that lots of bloggers have that, such as Addy, you, Olivia Knight, and many more, and I want in! ;) Maybe this makes more sense? If not, no worries.

    3. OH I GOT U. that makes sense now.

      I've googled it and looked around, but it doesn't look like there's any setting for it. When I changed my profile picture (how I told you up there), that's the one I comment with. As far as I know, it shouldn't change any pictures on your blog. The profile picture is just your comment picture. Hopefully that explains it all? Hahah.
      WOO.

    4. i'm laughing so hard. sweet maggie, i've got the skillz of a duck. i'm not sure how i changed the profile picture...i think i did it back on the old blogger format and i can't seem to find it. i changed my profile picture, and then it automatically began showing up as my picture when i commented. so i hope cally helped because she's a whiz. XD much love and sorries to you! x

    5. Well thanks anyway, haha! Yeah, my profile pic IS my comment pic, same for you, but your profile pic doesn't show on your blog. Sooo...idk, it doesn't matter that much. :)

  5. oohhh maan, Addy, this is incredible. as poets and dreamers both, yes, we see the dark and the light. love that concept. and us humans being human, and God being God... gah somehow He always has something in your poems touch me right where i need it.
