    Misunderstood Monster

    I have been diagnosed

    as having different mental problems, but I believe that I am actually a sociopath: so good at it, that I was able to hide it from shrinks and therapists, and also myself. I never understood why I never had a lasting relationship with anyone. Why people acted like they were...

    I did not wish to live what was not life,

    living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life...

    I don't lose my patience often. When I do, its abrupt,sudden, a seminal spurt of passion. The affable thing is I can't hold grudges. This flusters me; some people need a pencil sticking out their eye, their tongues stapled. I'm always fragmenting my actions. Perhaps, this arises...

    Statement.

    "You have wronged innocent people for no good reason." I find this statement rather entertaining. "Innocent" and "wronged" are more subjective words. I thought society didn't consider it 'wrong' to put someone who is bothering you into their place? I don't wake up in the morning...
