The Beasts Within Us - 2

Dear M,

We all know how to hurt someone. We do so consciously and unconsciously. We do throw around words like hypocrite, sadist etc. at others, but we close our eyes towards the fact that we are hypocrites and sadists in bits and pieces. We do find some relief, if not joy, in causing a pin-prick in someone's arm, for any tiny or huge reason whatsoever. And that pin-prick might go on to become a wound that causes the arm to be amputated. And then we shrug, to shake the guilt off our own shoulders, and tell ourselves that what we did was a mere pin-prick, this was surely caused due to something else. Sound familiar? Yes? Good. Now go write that story, change the names and take the weight off your chest.
