    Broken Tulip I struck someone today.

    He fell with one quick swoop, then cried like a child would! The stares I got from the people around me were, to say the least, refreshing! I had no clue of what my next move might be, so I fled. I haven't noticed brown stains of dry blood ever since I fired my sweet flower...

    The Hollow Shell

    not much goes on inside, not much movement at all. emotional spectrum is so small, boredom, frustration, and on occasion, anger. but on the whole, I move through each day, without feeling.When I get mad, I am furious. like lightening it can strike, then be gone just as quick...

    I found a book every psychopath can relate to.

    Ever wonder what it is like to get your way all the time? Do you know how to handle adversity? Can you really commit to saying you're a psychopath, to a point where you'd have to decide between some ones life or death? In the book The Wisdom of Psychopaths, those who are, will...

    I have never felt emotion

    and until when I was around 12, I had thought emotions and consciences were something of fantasy, like the religion or santa. I don't understand the machinations of human feeling, no idea why people become "friends", and I constantly manipulate people for reasons ranging from...

    The world is simple. A simple game.

    The rules are there for everyone to know, to follow. Break a rule and you will be punished. The punishments are there as well. Cause and effect. The only variables? People. If you know how people will react the world becomes black and white. Logical. I’m growing tired of this...

    The boredom is getting to me tonight.

    Literally to the point where I'm just pacing through the house. I've finished the book I was reading, tried to watch TV but even that is failing to distract me. Ran out of liquor, suppose I could go get more but the weather is horrible right now. How do sober people stay sober?

    I am camouflaged in an environment of angels.

    And I was once soft and mushy at my core, but heart-break has rendered cold. Now I am the lashing of wind, the icy vortex of snow; I hope they all die in my storm. The 11 who brought me woe.

    Great Job, You Guys.

    I like to consider the functioning psychopath the truly intelligent psychopath. You and I understand that society is a sandbox, and if you're not in it (or at least nearby), you can't play with it. Of course, we all know how much fun a manipulative life can be. So, bravo for...

    Lazy Or Bored?

    I don’t know about others, but I get sick of hearing about how lazy psychopaths are. Empaths choosing words to describe what they can not understand infuriates me and this is just one more example of their drive to remove anything different from themselves. Psychopaths are lazy...

    for psychopathy? Do you get diagnosed from a professional or is it intuition that would lead you to believe that you're a psychopath? How many are self-aware that they're psychopaths? I mean, I'm assuming that they can see that they're different from everyone else in ways that...
