I'm a monster.
It is a fact. There is no changing what I am.
People pass me on the street. They can't see it, I look just like them.
They can feel it. They can feel the evil, the hatred that now defines what I am.
I said now defines what I am.
I wasn't always like this. I'm not, present tense, always like this.
Sometimes I am different. Sometimes I can be the polar opposite of myself.
No, I do not have a medical condition. No, I cannot take a medication, or get therapy.
I am cursed.
I am two people. Lucius and Xander.
Lucius is who I am. He is good, and kind.
Then there is Xander. He is the monster within me.
What I am is a monster. Who I am is Lucius. The monster within is Xander. Not too confusing, right?
Welcome to my world.
