101 Entries for “sympathy”

  1. “He was a good man,” another nameless friend or coworker whispered in his ear. John nodded numbly. To the right, there was a long line of people waiting to express their condolences and shake his hand. He adjusted his tie and coughed. The weight of it all pressed into his chest, stealing his air. “Sorry, dad,” he muttered to the casket before breaking into a run to escape the cathedral.

  2. Sympathy again? I had this word already this week. No sympathy for the Oneword minions! What’s up with this glitch? Did you think because I had just one day off yesterday that my mind had turned to mush? New Word! No Rest! New Word!

  3. The feelings I have for you
    Will always be there and true
    I know what you’re going through
    Red eyes and feeling blue

    By Nils Fain URL on 11.12.2014

  4. A state of feeling sad together with someone who is going through a difficult time. Sympathy is an emotion that more of us need. It’s not easy to do however.

  5. Her greatest problem was she was too empathetic. She felt everyones pain. From the homeless man on the street to the rich guy complaining about paying too much taxes. She could literally absorb their emotions. His greatest problem was a complete lack of sympathy for anyone. They were perfect for each other.

  6. why all the commotion about the events of the day? has this not happened every day before this one. i can no longer gather any sympathy for the people of the world.

  7. They feel a lot for him
    Poor boy
    He was going to be a football star
    If only he didn’t rape her.

    Meanwhile,
    She sobs violently in her room
    But the news anchors pay no respect
    it was her fault anyway,
    The way that she dressed

  8. Sometimes we like when others give us sympathy, other times we hate when others give us sympathy, and yet other times we are not sure if we are happy or sad when someone gives us sympathy

    By Hope Strubs on 11.12.2014

  9. They hand me their pastel Hallmark cards. They place the flowers on the table. They shuffle along in a never-ending line of black suits, except for the one brain-dead guy who wore light gray, and try not to look at the corpse. Dead people make them antsy.

    Grandma kisses me on the forehead, and I want to scream. Or maybe I want to cry. The school psychiatrist would say that when I’m angry, I’m sad, and when I’m sad, I’m tired, and when I’m tired, I should take some calming breaths.

    I don’t want to breathe in the stench of dead moms.

  10. I didn’t mean to punch him in the face..ok I did but he was asking for it “pull my hair one more time punk” I yelled right after I punched him, but now he’s on the floor holding his bloody nose I felt a little something deep down in my stomach it can’t be…Sympathy right? wait nope its just the tuna and banana sandwich I had for breakfast

  11. Nobody ever really took him seriously, teachers included. He stood up, hands bunched at his pants, asking the teacher for permission to leave. His sheepish smile wasn’t convincing, but the wet circle expanding on his pants didn’t lie.

  12. what is sympathy

    By tyler on 11.12.2014

  13. Slowly, I paced the empty room, tears welling at my eyes, and I cast a wary look at the casket in the corner. It was closed, a boquet of flowers leaning up against it, and I sighed, remembering the person inside. Then, in an instant, I left through the empty window, leaving my victim to rot underground. I hope they stay, unnerved, in peace.

  14. Be nice to people. If you are nice people will like you better, you will feel better as well. Sometimes it’s hard to be nice, but make a affort, smile at people and start the day with a ”good moarning”.

    By Maria on 11.12.2014

  15. one mind knocking on another
    closed doors — all of us —
    but when soundless anguish can be heard,
    from far beyond the shut gate,
    knock — knock — knock
    with your sanguine hand

    By M on 11.12.2014

  16. I bought a card
    to say how much I’m sorry
    that you’ve lost yourself, and your heart
    is ground to a pulp
    and you can’t think without hurting but your brain
    is a runaway train, barrelling towards a black whole.
    I’m sorry
    that your world is not as light
    and that the sun mocks you
    I’m sorry
    Here’s a card
    It may just make it better.

    By Steph on 11.12.2014

  17. She knocked over the salt shaker, inadvertently. He felt no sympathy for her as she slowly wiped the salt crystals toward the edge of the table, stealing a furtive glance at him as she swept them on the floor, knowing it would press all of his buttons.

  18. Sympathy for the devil. The phrase rolled about in her mind. Her mother had always told her she was too open, too empathetic. She’d sworn to listen to her and yet. Here she was.
    Though, if she had to lay blame on anything, it was his eyes.

    By MiMi on 11.12.2014

  19. I am sympathetic, usually. Sometimes overly cloying sympathetic. Sarah said I should stop bothering her so much and let her deal with her own problems but I just can’t help myself. I can’t just help myself. My nosiness contributes… but I can’t bear to stand by while people are hurting.

  20. I have no sympathy for you. You bastard. What have you done now? Am I suppose to understand all your psychobabble?!

    By shanita on 11.12.2014

  21. Sympathy is a difficult thing to have for people. It requires feeling something that someone else feels that you have no personal experience with. This could be losing a child or something similar. It’s in our nature to want to help those who feel hurt and alone, but most think that it can be summed up in a simple card.

  23. mercy

    By Julia URL on 11.12.2014

  24. Searing and persistent, every twitch of pain,
    Every twinge of regret, of remembrance
    Settles behind my eyes.
    I don’t feel their pain, I just feel sorry for them.
    Why can’t they just be perfect like me?

    By Jesse Ruiz URL on 11.12.2014

  25. The woman in lavender took the child into her arms, bathing him in the scent of her perfume. She wiped away his tears, slowly, gently, silhouetted by the moonlight. She tried to convince him that to go away to boarding school was not a travesty.

  26. Sympathy sounds like symphony.

    By Dan on 11.12.2014

  27. isn’t he a bit overfed?
    engorged on the salt
    from an ocean of someone else’s sorrow.
    i can’t feel you, so no. i’m the one
    that’s actually sorry.
    i think there should be a card for when you stop crying

    By Kairn URL on 11.12.2014

  28. sympathy is something you feel for someone when they are in a difficult place or struggling with something. sympathy is different than emapathy. Empathy is understanding what it is like to be in that person’s shoes, empathy

  29. sym pathy. i am together on a suffering with you. people say that. but do you want them to know the dark canals slithering behind your defensive eyes? or do you rather let them slither by behind the shadows?

    By frankie on 11.12.2014

  30. No sympathy is felt for the one standing on stage. Tomatoes are being thrown, and laughter cruelly surrounds her smal, now crying frame.

    By A Tree Hugger URL on 11.12.2014

  31. I have sympathy for the way he treated me, you know, with his Dad being gone and all. It wasn’t all his fault, and I do blame myself for what has come out of this. One day I just hope we will overcome this and look back at it.

    By Leo on 11.13.2014

  32. Sitting stooped, hunched in a moonlit corner, the harlots and empty promises his only friends, knowing that their sympathies were feigned. He couldn’t resist the urge, throwing the bottle, watching it crack into hundreds of smaller pieces, alcohol running over every edge, dripping on to the dry pavement beneath. If this was what their sympathies brought, he didn’t want any.

    By Brenton URL on 11.13.2014

  33. i looked at them, sitting on the steps outside my house, talking in whispers, laughing behind their hands. and i felt an enormous abyss inside me, filling up with sympathy, not for them but for myself, because their hidden lughter was more heartfelt than mine, even though I had much more reason to smile, even though I had all they didnt.

    By Oliver on 11.13.2014

  34. I ahve much sympathy for anyone that does not believe that you have control of your life. The Universe gives you awesome powers and you should use them!! Control your brain, do not let it control you!!

  35. I offer my sympathy for all those persons who were victims of sexual abuse at the hands of those church leaders of whom we held the highest esteem, trust and respect.

  36. Sympathy isn´t the only one thing you need to be succesfull. In fact, sympathic people aren´t usually succesfull. But “being sympathic” is the first step to impress someone. – When someone is impressed by you, he will remember you and you can be succesfull.

    Tissues, hugs, and platitudes
    Would not heal the wounds
