I’m a monster.
I have a darkness that I can’t control and it begs to be let free.
A monster that has sold their soul to the criminal underground.
I shouldn’t like the taste of blood.
But the power it gives me feeds the malevolence inside me.
A monster that is tasked to kidnap someone.
A gorgeous, feisty woman who looks at me without fear in her eyes. Her fight causes a primal feeling inside of me.
I know I can’t have her and yet that doesn’t stop me from wanting to defile her.
I’m torn between loyalty and taking her as mine to protect.
Both our lives hang in the balance.
And now the gun is pointed at me, but I’m not scared to get blood on my hands.
Because I’m a monster.
And my darkness is ready to make my captive mine.
They say when you see death on your doorstep you see your life flash before your eyes.
But all I see is her.
Maybe she is my life. The one that makes me feel alive. That showed me what it’s like to really live. But I don’t get to keep her anymore.
I played the reaper for so long and now the tables have turned. Now the gun is pointed at me. And I am not afraid. I’ve never feared death. Death brought me an escape I was so desperately searching for.
Now when I look at death, when I feel the blood escaping my body, I don’t feel the relief I used to feel when taking a life. Because my blood is cold. My body weak. My eyes heavy.
Death is not an end.
Death is a welcoming home.
A passage to peace.
But as I fade away, my chest aches of regret. And I only hope those I’ve wronged find the peace I was never able to give them. That those I love find the peace I was too foolish to hold on to.
Death is a funny thing.
And I do not fear it.
