On the outside
He appears quite sane
A little shy
A little lonely
But otherwise immune to pain
Being generally ignored
By others
Has made him lead
A purely theoretical life
But his psychopathic nightmares
Have a dark internal meaning
Underneath the surface
A trigger happy
Pistol junkie
Waits, gun in hand

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not but I could really relate to this poem. It has to be one of my all time favorites.

This is fabulous. Explores the mind of a psycopath in so few words but encompasses it perfectly. Extremely well done. I would greatly appreciate it if you could check out some of my stuff! Be as honest as you please.

dd1995, I completely agree with you.  The poem is great, but like most great pieces, it leaves you wanting more...
