Empathy

Empathy

A Poem by evanescere

I always had a way with people,
I understood them,
I could always perceive their emotions,
I felt competent,
Empathy is what they called it,
They say it is a good thing,
For i felt the same,
Until i realised how sombre everyone was within,
And it all collapsed upon me,
For i myself drifted into the same abyss,
The abyss of dejection and sorrow,
For now i know that Empathy is a journey,
And in this enervated world it only leads to a ravine,
A ravine where our sorrows flow endlessly.

I especially like the last three lines of this work evanescere. I think empathy is worth something, but it's the convoluted world we've constructed that can make it so painful when we try to connect with others. You've hit on a truth which affects all caring people.
