As We Bask In Sorrow
While recently having a conversation with a friend, we discussed 'basking in sorrow, ' which by definition, is an oxymoron.. bask meaning to take great pleasure or satisfaction; and sorrow meaning loss or despair.
It is possible to bask in sorrow. While for one reason or another, sadness consumes you, at the same time you could be quite happy. For example; I am naturally a happy person. Therefor while I may feel constant sadness about a certain situation, I may still be basking; or somewhat happy. (smiling, laughing, having a good time)
Many people have a sadness inside them ...
He Walked Me Home
You have the ability to catch my attention
Your confident manner and should i mention
Your good taste in music really intrigued me
And I wondered what else possibly could be
Hidden beneath the sly smile and witty replies
Of an interesting man with unreadable eyes
Who asked me if I could write him a poem
That describes him well though i barely know him
