My Private Demon

“Don’t dwell on the past, it’s going to weigh you down, it’s going to left you shattered”

I have a very profound definition of hate. Hate is always a part of my personality, after all, I hate myself, I am not really in peace with my inner character.

I am haunted by a dark past, by a monster who betrayed me, a sin who wouldn’t leave me alone. There’s still a little bit of hate left in me, I guess it’s never gonna go away, it’s a part of my life that I can’t just throw away. I realised that writing about my past is a great way to heal from it, to set myself free, to break away from the hurt. But no matter how hard I try to run from it, it always seem to find a way to catch up with me, and when it does, the hate that is kept hidden under the deepest portion of my heart slowly breaks  and turns into detrimental chaos. That hate combined with regret and suppressed resentment makes me want to hurt people, to avenge my broken heart, to say foul things, to curse, to manipulate, to cause affliction and distress.


I am a bad person. My heart is made up of absolute loathing. I am incapable of forgiveness. My heart could never, ever forgive. As long as there is a small amount of repugnance scratching within me, I could never, ever find peace.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I am still emotional right now, I just want to cry and I feel like my heart is jumping out of my chest.

I made some mistakes in my grammar, can I have a chance to edit this one? This is kind of embarrassing, really.

there is a cadence to your words that i feel reverberate in my soul. you say that you are hateful, but i do not sense hate — i sense pain, and a light about to be snuffed out by darkness. do not let it.
