Cruel

“Where did your heart go?”
she cried out, wondering
how he learned
to be so cruel.

      1. Both psychopaths and sociopaths lack emotion and cannot reason right from wrong. The bug difference is being born that way vs becoming that way. Often, they lack any regard whatsoever when it comes to laws and proper behavior in society. The really creepy part is when they learn to fake emotion and false empqthy so well, you’d never know it was all a lie. I’m not a psychiatrist, but from my knowledge it’s not always a choice to become a sociopath, it sort of just happens.

  1. There is such a thing as casual cruelty, that natural cruelty that one is not even aware of. The kind learned through watching, taught through example.

    Tis not that his heart be missing, but instead that his heart beat to a drum quite different than others.
