Daily Prompt: Sympathize

I can feel it


Sometimes I’m so deep into it

I forget myself

My own problems

Suppose that is a good thing

But empathy can break your heart

If you let it go too far

Whereas sympathy

Keeps your head above water

  1. I I can both sympathize and empathize with your sentiment. There is the chance to let go and feel safe. I use an emotional Mae West emotional flotation system to help me experience emotional situations and still not be towed under by a slue of negativity that could be lurking there. Gluc. Glub. 🙂
