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)

A Member Of The Innocent
The innocence is broken, a new understanding of the world and surroundings.
A sad story and a sad outcome. A smiling face, A caring heart left over in the wake of this monumental horror. My heart breaks as i relive this story throughout the days. A poor, innocent soul, now tainted by the pain and hurt that no person should ever have to experience. I worry for this. A strange calm upon a person so wounded. Again my heart breaks in two.
