Poem: I Find You in Me

In the depth
of silences of my world
Layers of emotions of 'me'
Unfold to me
In the depth of the layers of my emotions
Stormy
Fiery
Wounded
Anxious
Frightened
Weakened
Shattered
Weeping
In the layers of my emotions
I find you
Wrapping my feelings
Of hurt, pain and tears
In your love
Healing them one by one
Curing them
Layer by layer
In each emotion
of me
I find you in me
And then emotions cease to appear
I feel you and love
In me

Apart from deep love this poem has a therapeutic angle of recognizing and labeling emotions.
'I am anxious' and 'I am feeling anxious' have slightly different meanings. When we say, I am anxious, we are telling ourselves that me is anxious while it's an emotion and not the thorough representation of me. I am feeling anxious means right now I have this feeling of anxiousness due to some reason. This feeling isn't permanent and it will go once I work on resolving the issue causing it. This lessens the intensity of emotion and we begin to heal.

Spiritually we can call it as Saakshi Bhaava -- looking at your emotions from a distance. My Aatma is me and not this emotion is me.

Psychology Today has explained how labeling emotions works with research results: Why Labeling Emotions Matters
