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.
