Joy From the Pain of Others

i find happiness in a another person’s
their whimpers, their desperation, frustration
and fears
when all signs of hope have faded
when sadness lingers around
my smiles become evident-while everyone else
recovers from having their lives crashing
superiority fills me up-
if only for a moment
while others wonder where their joy in life
it’s selfish of me, that I’m fully aware
but something mean deep inside me simply choose
not to care
while my apathetic ways are widely known
i wonder
will someone just like me smirk when i have tears
of my own
