Poem: Empath

Updated on April 18, 2015

An empath, drowning in pain

Awash I was

in the agony of others:

In anguish, drifting away,

After so much

For a long time I was broken.

An empath disconnected

Adrift, alone

Shielded from the onslaught of pain,

yet hidden so too from love.

I build the wall

Constructing my prison forlorn

my armor, my shield I am.

So far along

Much too late and too far to turn

Time wears on, the wall recedes

Again I feel.

Tears fall anew for pain not mine.

Once again I ache inside

Welcomed this time

For now, maybe, I can love.
