    We breathe the same air,

    we think alike, you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping flesh, but never look into my eyes for to long. Or else you might sense that i'm completely empty, and just not there. And that is when it gets dark, and the games begin.

    It's rather irritating

    when people think "sociopath" is a simile for "murderer". It's perhaps even more irritating that everyone assumes that sociopaths cannot feel. From my experience, the feeling is far more shallow than everyone else describes but it's there nonetheless. I don't "get" empathy...
