Have you ever wondered what happens to your alter ego, after you’ve grown and moved out of that stage you were in when you made them? Have they grown too? Have they learnt the lessons you have, or have they simply wanted to come back to power so long after you’d neglected them for even longer…?

Would they want revenge for being under loved?

Sure you loved them, at a time. Because they’re a great big part of you, but what if, just maybe, they might turn out to be your undoing? Maybe you’re mad.

Or maybe it’s the truth you kept hidden from yourself for too long a time…And your other personality just found out that secret. Your other personality knows simply…

EVERYTHING.

And that’s exactly what scares you, because she, sorry to say, is THE DEVIL.

She spurns me, yet she barely even knows me.
Let her let me let myself be who I am – the person she is.
Though I love her, I am her agony,
Her weakness, her pain…
_._
She cuts herself to try and hurt me, methinks.
She knows not the blood she lets leak.
She’s lowly, I’m strong. I’m callous. She’s meek.
And she’s everything BUT me. Yet she IS me.
She's my burden. I'm her destiny.
_._
She’ll yell at the mirror to force me out-
She’ll try.
I’ll frolic about her wits. I'll shout-
-“DIE, angel. DIE!”
Die.
_._
She knows it not but I’m in control.
If she hasn’t noticed, I’m the girl’s soul.
Sure, for a while she was my mistress.
Now I’m the one in love with her, as she grows to like me less.
_._
She shouldn’t cry, but she does – always.
I and she are one – we can never part ways.
_._
She shouldn’t live the way she wants, but she will.
Our fate is entwined with a lifetime's seal.
_._
I am her alter ego, I’ll say it loud.
I, the doppelganger, I the shadow, I the beast…
And I shall continue to be till she is deceased-
_._
And here ends my story, her misery.
And here ends she.
