Poem: Empathy

Poem: Empathy

I’m not a bad person,

I do feel what you feel.

It’s just unusual to unreel,

The emotions that I feel.

I want to show you I care,

But all I do is stare.

Wondering why your speaking bare,

Tears everywhere.

I don’t understand touch,

Why it’s necessary,

Are words not enough.

For me to ask how you are,

Is a blank question.

Cause you’ll respond,

With human convention.

Tell me what you want,

I’m no good with lies.

It’s more puzzling for me,

Than games of spies.

I magnify what your trying to tell,

But I’m in so deep,

I fall under a spell.

I can’t turn away,

My mind in another realm,

Trying to make sense of your show and tell.
