(Unedited)

So my secret is out you say? That would depend witch secret you are referring to. That I am a clone? Everyone knows that by now. Or that I have a dark disease pulsating through my veins, one I am quite fond of? Big deal. It’s exciting, never to have to hold back, unpredictability is a drug. We all crave it.  So what possible secret could I hold that is worth keeping? Imagine me giving you a sly smirk right now because I have not the misfortune of compassion that will cause me to spill my secrets. Without them there is no hand to be dealt.

Will my secret keep him close? Perhaps. But here is my confession, I have something better than secrecy. I have absolution. With me, he is not bound, it will be out of choice. With me, he never has to hold back. And I would love him for the good and especially in the bad. When I gave my word that I’d stop my tricks – I lied. That’s the thing with obsession. I does not care. It only wants, and it is so fixated on want, that it becomes need, and it shall have all it wants and needs.  And while I have no time to ponder who I am, clone – what a stupid word, I am already on my way to loving him forever. That’s how I play it, because I just don’t care.  Everyone knows I am nothing like my pathetic prime. That with me, it’s all bad intentions and violent, narcissistic adoration. That is not who I am. I am but one thing - in absolution. 


***** Excerpt 2 *****
Spoilt, selfish love, and drunken obsession - I did it all for him. It was a good a place to fall as any. And I’d fall a million times over for him, into him and with him. Sweat, tears and blood, my sweet confessions of beautiful lies. Hurt, lust and deadly defiance – I did it all for him. Eclectic, enigmatic and insufferable is what holds me to this world, to do it all for him. It’s a constant craving, aching and twisting inside -for him.
He is in my bloodstream, forever floating in my vision, an axiomatic high I burn for. When I inhale, it is for him. Defiance, is for him. At his touch I come alive, nothing else matters but that. He is the antidote to the forbidding Shadow disease growing inside of me. But for this kind of absolution there is no cure.
