Allow me to elucidate upon who I am and what my nature entails...
I am the stranger that stares hungrily at you from the dark corner of a smoky barroom.
I am the rapist who taunts you with a grin from the witness stand.
I am the one who always fires the first round, turning a peaceful protest into a bloodbath.
I shot JFK. I assassinated Lincoln.
I committed Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon Bombings, and 9/11.
I am every serial killer. Every terrorist and zealot.
I am Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, and Kim Jong-un.
I'm the first murderer. I will probably be the last.
My methods are always brutal. My goals always reprehensible.
I am the voice in the back of your head, the one that tells you to take. To rend. To kill and hurt.
I am all of your bad habits, all of your prejudices. I am every sick perversion that you repress.
When you first realized that you could hurt another living thing, that pleasurably-cold and empty sensation inside of you was my smile.
When you first exerted your dominance over somebody else, that rush of power that you reveled in was my gift.
When you first felt the pain and humiliation of somebody dominating you, that somebody was me.
I am inside of you right now. I've always been.
To be without me is to be something other than human. Perhaps something lesser.
To surrender to me is to give in to the primordial chaos that birthed you.
You're not pure. You never have been. That is how I can touch you.
If your will is weak enough, I will eventually supplant you, and force you to watch as your hands do the worst things to the ones you love.
God cannot save you. I am stronger than him.
Love cannot save you. I have already twisted it.
Civilization cannot save you, for I am the one who built it.
Death cannot save you, because I transcend that boundary.
You are my bitch.
And I am your want.
Understand me, motherfucker?
I am the monster under your bed.
I am the drunk that beats his child.
I am the sigh of PLEASURE when your wife cheats on you!
I am the look of DISGUST when your husband of decades beholds your naked, ageing body!
I am the stink of ANIMOSITY that hovers over your children when you discipline them!
I AM THE MADNESS THAT FESTERS IN THE SOUL OF HUMANITY!
I AM THE TWISTED LUST OF THE CHILD MOLESTER!
I AM THE SPILLER OF BLOOD IN COUNTLESS GENOCIDES!
I AM THE NAMELESS CHAOS THAT WILL SEND YOUR WHOLE FUCKING SPECIES HURTLING INTO THE GODDAMNED SUN!
I AM THE FLESH THAT HATES!!!
THE LORD OF THE WORM!!!
I AM THE BAD SEED!!!
I AM EVERY ATROCITY THAT CAN EVER BE!!!
I AM THE COLLECTIVE SINS OF YOUR ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS!!!
I AM UNSTOPPABLE!!!
I CANNOT BE PLACATED!!!
I WILL RAPE AND CONSUME ALL OF REALITY SIMPLY BECAUSE IT EXISTS!!!
Put simply, dear Stranger...
I am You.
