The Empath

written by: V. R. Forbes



It is a blessing and curse to
feel so deeply, profoundly
in this maddening, soul
crushing life. Write to
relieve the pressure. Let
your heart off the hook, if
only for a moment. You
cannot sink into abyss, into
darkness as you will
light up oblivion
with your brilliant light.
I'm as sure of this as
I am of anything.



Conversation with a friend inspired this piece.
