“I am a hunter and the best – a predatory beast.
You are the hunted, the prey and the least.”
– Lori Anne Thompson
I will come to you along the lines of relationship.
I will find you where you are the weakest… your vulnerability makes me salivate.
I will come to you once or repeatedly, it matters not; my needs are satisfied with momentary or long-term abuse.
I will shatter your sexuality in seconds and you will work for the rest of your life to pick up the shards with broken hands.
I will slither my way into the tender places of your body, soul and spirit.
I will crawl into the small spaces reserved for the sacred and commit sacrilege.
I will sidle up to your deepest needs.
I will cull your trust with cunning caresses and compassionate care.
I will invite you into a choice-less choice…
I will cackle when you “choose” in chains.
I will inseminate you with my evil so that I will forever be a part of you – for generations.
I will use all of your natural needs to lure you, lie to you, lie with you and lie about you.
I will coax a response from your body, even the touch you crave – you will abhor.
I will fragment your mind and enslave your will.
I will spin around you, through you, surround you and eventually… enter into you.
I will feast on you, you are fodder only for my hunger.
I will never slumber and you will never sleep – without me, again.
I will steal your peace, your trust, your hope, your faith, your dignity and your glorious voice.
I will contaminate all of your relationships.
I will continue to give you these relational ‘gifts’ long after I am gone.
I will do all that I can to ensure your silence; my power is limited but you do not know that.
I will mix a perfect cocktail of truth with a soothing elixir of lies; strengthening my diabolical deception.
I will blame you. I will tell myself that you like it – you wanted it even. If you were not such a whore, this would not be happening to you.
I will cause you to betray your own body.
I will breach all of your boundaries.
I will break all that is beautiful.
I will incite you to scream in silence.
I will murder your soul but leave behind the shell of your physical frame.
I will hide the evidence of my crime just behind your eyes.
I will caution you, I have but one weakness… Truth.
I will have none of that.
