Empathy

I can interpret feelings,
Even if I don't live them myself,
It's the kind of emotion,
That makes you feel, never by yourself.

I can 'feel' the extremes- joy and sorrow. And cry more than I'd like to admit. Great poem
the ability to read other people can psychologically speaking be semi-equivalent to bonding with that person, as by understanding their manner & mechanics within is how an otherwise unlikely friendships are born. I Like this, Sandra...poetically socratic, and brimming with substance in a mere 23 words...Not an easy fear, ther' young missy! ~FjR~
