It’s surreal;

that one moment

we come upon

the harsh realization

that not everyone feels

as deeply as we do,

nor do they have

the same

empathetic capacity,

that we have been

so naturally endowed with,

all of our lives,

to experience

other people’s

inner workings,

for better,

or for worse.

Surreal, Tamara Yancosky

  1. I so agree with what you said. It’s heartbreaking when we discover that the people we would give our all to aren’t even equipped to use their heart. It’s like loving someone who is numb and frozen. Love this poem, Tamara!
