It traps us in a monotonous,

deadening cycle.

Engulfs our dreams and desires...

...with innumerable obstacles

that are laced with cruel irony.

We try to shadow these inescapable

truths with such lies as cinema...

...use it as a shield of escape.

A coating to shelter us...

...from the ceaseless hardships

thrown in our paths.

Certain films can attempt

to absorb our negative energy... a hope that perhaps...

...they can keep our

darkest emotions at bay.

But unfortunately, flickering light

can only pacify our demons for so long.

And human reality

will eventually rear its ugly head.

Far more horrific than any film

can attempt to portray.

I can see her.

She sleeps so calmly.

Her bloated midsection

slowly rising and falling.

Her every breath, a certain

feat of accomplishment.

I know what she's thinking:

Thinking about her future...

of what she is... what's inside of her.

Her dreams...

are probably so boring.

Not like mine...

Her face is beautiful... soft.

But she never lets me touch it.

We always keep our distance,

and this is fine.

She laughs at me. I know it.

Thinks I'm impotent.

Thinks I could never do

what her previous partners could.

But I know better.

I can do things, see things

and experience things...

...that those soul-less creatures

could never even dream of.

I know what to do

when the time comes.

My life, has slowly become what you

would consider many nightmares.

One cruel and vicious

vision after another.

Imagery, that is built on a constant

thread of depravity... and horror.

That unspools with fury and passion.

But I love this.

I love the cruelty and the torture.

You see, it helps me learn...

...helps me learn about the

enigmas surrounding life and death.

I learn the true nature

of the human being.

This fascinates me,

and scares me at the same time.

But I suppose all types of enlightenment

can be considered frightening.

I learn from these visions that the

strongest monster of them all...

...the one that causes the most pain,

destruction and suffering... nothing but the human itself.

I relish in this fact,

and live it to its fullest.

And now... as the pregnant woman

sleeps alone in the decrepit room... seems that the peeling walls are

looking down on her as well as me.

Observing her, as the tiny being...

...that is growing in her belly

gets more and more whole.

Looking with passion... the small phenomenon

that is passively taking place.

I know what the foetus feels.

It feels irrelevant...

It feels nothing.

It's my job to make the being feel.

To experience humanity at its fullest.

At times, I would quietly

observe the woman...

...making love to an

anonymous partner...

...through the ajar door into

the house's single bedroom.

The odd motions and frenetic desires

seeming so alien to me...

...and familiar at the same time.

I became completely

obsessed from afar...

...with the architecture

of the human sex organ.

The way they were built

with their odd curves and lips.

Perfectly designed by an unknown

god for total symmetry in creation.

How fascinating it was...

Especially when pain was

mixed with the pleasure.

But the whole concept of human creation was

one that obsessed me for years and years.

It amazed me that the simple act

of penetrating and ejaculating...

...into a female sex organ...

...could cause such incredible

happenings and bodily contortions.

Just from a minor liquid outburst.

Sometimes I would myself masturbate,

as I watched the various sex acts...

...partaking distantly like a personal
