I Could Title This But I'll Still Hate You, Either Way

If I were
sympathetic,
I feel as though
you might like me more.
If I could show you
a certain amount of pity,
rather than seem
apathetic,
you might be
less angry with me.
I am, however,
only empathetic,
and having been there,
I must tell you
how
little
sympathy
I have for one as
pathetic
as you.

About Catastrophe Jones

Wretched word-goblin with enough interests that they're not particularly awesome at any of them. Terrible self-esteem and yet prone to hilarious bouts of hubris. Full of the worst flavors of self-awareness. Owns far too many craft supplies. Will sing to you at the slightest provocation.
