Empathy

Empathy

A Poem by Arrinae

This swirling storm around me,
It numbs my heart.
Slowly, but surely,
Its tearing me apart.

I can't stop it, no,
Though it overwhelms me so easily.
The pain and turmoil I feel,
From taking their pain and misery.

I must control it,
Such an impossible task.
But until I learn to,
How much longer will I last?

I can't stop it, no,
Though it overwhelms me so easily.
The pain and turmoil I feel,
From taking their pain and misery.

I cannot hide my own pain,
Everyone can feel it.
Try as I might to lock it within,
Its spreading waves never seem to end.

I can't stop it, no,
Though it overwhelms me so easily.
The pain and turmoil I feel,
From taking their pain and misery.

You can't hide what you feel,
At least not from me.
I can feel it all,
Don't you see?

I can't stop it, no,
Though it overwhelms me so easily.
The pain and turmoil I feel,
From taking their pain and misery.

I know your pain better than you do, 
I've drawn the majority of it within,
I share your pain,
Though it is not what I intend.

I can't stop it, no,
Though it overwhelms me so easily.
The pain and turmoil I feel,
From taking their pain and misery.

No one cares,
No one believes,
That I can't control,
My empathy.

Thank you for reading and taking the time to leave a review!
I was also raised also if I can't say
anything nice don't say anything at all,

I need to ask did you mean my or me in this sentence?
I am a bit confused on this part. Its tearing my apart.


I know how this feel I have always been sensitive to others
feelings and energy it is normal for most you learn to control
it when you get older but more you care for someone you can feel
what they're going through but Intuition goes in there too being able
to tell when one is telling the truth I just take them as gifts from God.




Thank you for sharing not many
will open up and share that they go though this
it was harder when I was a child harder to understand
and you're very sensitive to your surroundings.


And I am being serious many are not aware
that others feel ones energy and pain and are sensitive
to it I am very open and it Is just how god makes many
of us some just ignore it but I can't it keeps me safe.



Take care Benita

No problem
This was really well written. The repetition of "I Can't stop it, no" was used very wisely. It's very deep, and it portrays the darkness hiding inside.

Great
work on this one, Arrinae. Can you halt the storms of your own soul? Can
you defy your own nature? Interesting questions... Enjoyed this one.
Keep up the good work, friend...
