What is wrong

The program comes to an end. Scenes from movies over the years. A montage of people loving each other in normal ways.

The love that dare not speak its name.

Racking sobs burst out from him. Weeping tears trail down his cheeks. Mouth wide. Choking gently.

The pup lying beside him looks up into his face, a query in his eyes.

It is not something easily explained. Even if he could understand the words he would never understand the emotion. Because he would never have experienced the strange thinking that went into being human.

The hate living in frozen hearts.
