I received this poem by Ashley Gurka. I related to everything that she described. Here’s a very deep analysis of what it’s like to be a highly sensitive person.
I could never understand why I felt emotions so deeply and intensely my only outlet is poetry. It all makes sense knowing that I am a highly sensitive person. I wanted to share a poem I wrote about my emotions:
Your worst enemy displayed,
Always hated but never strayed,
A part of you that never ends,
Through the good it just blends,
Captivating and mindful,slowly succumbs,
Mind lost, heart racing, beating drums,
Emotions-so angry, so bitter, so cold,
But yet so warm, deep enough for another to hold,
A balance must be met,
Yin to the Yang must be set.
-Ashley Gurka 2014
Thank you Ashley for sharing your thoughts! Have you written anything that we highly sensitive people can relate to and learn from. I’d love to feature your work on my blog. I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
