monstrosity

cw: guns, murder

OK first things first I’ll eat your brains
then I’ma start rocking gold teeth and fangs
cause that’s what a motherfucking monster do – Nicki Minaj

-x-

It’s hiding in the dark
Its teeth are razor sharp
There’s no escape for me
It wants my soul,
It wants my heart
It’s scratching on the walls
In the closet, in the halls
It comes awake
And I can’t control it

I feel it deep within,
It’s just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I’ve become
The nightmare’s just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster – Skillet

———————–x———————–

we didn’t know where the monster came from. he happily put a gun to his aggressor’s face and pulled the trigger. a cyborg would’ve pulled the trigger, but wouldn’t derive pleasure from such barbaric displays of anger and frustration.

the following day, we watched the monster walk among humans and cyborgs. each step, dripping with acid, corroding the sidewalk and destroying everything in its path. after coming from an environment that produced demons, the monster never knew love or forgiveness. when it rounded the street corner and disappeared from sight, a sigh of relief could be heard from every person down the block. everyone is always afraid that the monster will turn on them; they are afraid that it might double-back, bare it fangs, and rip them to shreds.

before the change, the monster was driven by intellect, not by instinct.
