This is How You Made Me Feel – Written Tuesday 21st September 2010 (Aged 35)

This is How You Made Me Feel

this is how –
you made me feel
do those words
make you run for the hills
does the thought of reaching out
make you squirm
and then shout
do you wish –
that your emotions
had won some kind of lottery
suddenly becoming very rich
and that analogy about the ditch
sympathy gets in
and empathy offers a hand
or are you lost by that?
do you even understand?
this is how –
you made me feel
can you deal with that phrase?
can your empathy pay the bill?
