Pain and Empathy

Updated on September 10, 2012

Pain~

Comforted

by only

the tears

falling from my eyes .

NO one left

to care

enough

to ease

my hopeless cries.

Emotions

shrouded in misery,

your

spineless and cruel.

How long

do you think

Ill be mistaken

for a fool?

How long

must I wait,

pretending

love

is what you feel?

How long

do you

expect me

to keep masking

what is real?

You

can take away

this pain,

that is

building up inside.

You

can end

your shame ,

and

in me

always confide.

I love you

with

every empathetic

beat imploding

from

my troubled heart.

Only

to be

revived

every second

were apart.

In the dark hours

when

there are

no more

tears to blame.

I realize

the love

for you

is amplified

by our pain.

empathy~

Oh

these feelings

dancing across

my memories.

Swallowing

everything

left inside.

Your

love

has no meaning,

its is

only

a tease.

You

keep me

here waiting

and

the pain

I

try to hide.

But

the tears

sometimes

fight through

and

surely

you know

they're for you.

Don't be mistaken,

this

is not

tears

to get

your sympathy.

You've

given

me

enough pain

all

I want

is your empathy.
