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.

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...
