Poem - Irrelevance

Reactions: 
the sense isn't there
no, not for me
because i do not understand
how you are supposed to create
if you aren't allowed to feel.

if you can't, where do you go?
                     what do you do?
                    what do you see?
                                       hear?
                                     touch?

                                 if not a heart...

how do i achieve empathy?
            possible sympathy?
            a type of telepathy?
if you can't give others something to relate to

    how do you understand
                         each other,
                     or anything at all?

call it what you want;
feelings | emotions | sentiments | irrelevance
     but no matter what,
          i think you're wrong.
                  that, and beyond.
