I don't hate you, but I am angry. I'm not angry at you, I'm angry at just about everything.
Until the other night I'd only shown part of myself to you, it's still me, but it's edited.

I'm sorry, because I know I gave you little choice in anything, I know I'm difficult to speak to when I'm like that.
I'm so tired of people claiming to understand and appreciate how it feels. Whether they're correct or not, it's just not what I need to hear.
I KNOW I need to just... man up sometimes, but if I'm not doing so already then why would being told it change that? That's my view at the time of feeling those things I mean, not necessarily my view when I'm myself.

I'd had a lot to drink that evening and I'd taken sleeping pills, my pills are harsh and I tend to sleeptalk for the last 10 minutes or so before crashing completely. I wasn't sleeptalking to you, but I was certainly beyond the point of caring about you, and I stopped caring about myself a long time ago.

I hate to say this, because I DO understand that everyone has their own problems and hardships, but please don't underestimate how hard parts of my life have been.

Some thing I couldn't express to you at the time is my frustration at the phrase "everyone has shit to deal with." I still can't fully explain it, perhaps because my logic is basically flawed, I don't know, but here's my best shot:
When I'm depressed I don't care about ANYONE. I'm angry at the world for being such a hate-filled and cynical place, a place where people don't care. I know this is hypocritical, but I feel it anyway. Hearing that everyone else is unhappy on some level too doesn't cheer me up, it doesn't make me feel the world is a better place and it doesn't make me worry about them. It makes me angrier, angrier that so many people accept unhappiness like it's to be expected and that nobody cares.

This anger is what drives me in my work. I find it easy to blackmail people and hurt people and damage lives, because I can choose to stop caring when I feel like it. It's just easier to do that than have to feel the emotions related to causing pain. 

Blah blah blah, I suppose.

I'm just sorry, and I hope you can forgive me. I miss your sexy face and smartarse comments, genuinely. 



  1. I find myself being angry a lot, I just tell myself life is too short.

  2. Is this a real letter that you sent to someone? If so, I admire you for having the strength to post it on the internet. I also hope the response was positive.

    You also left the question of what your work is open, and how does your work involve blackmail and hurting people?

    I also feel sorry for you, it's a shame that such an intelligent and eloquent individual has to feel like that. On second thought, it's a shame that anyone at all has to.

  3. Great letter. Hit me back,

  4. @Braumaman - I find that a comforting thought too actually, thanks for posting.

    @The Beholder - Yeah it was a real letter, although it's one I kind of regret sending lol. It got a decent enough response and everything, but it's the kind of situation that probably would best off finished anyway really.
    Work will be revealed in time I think, got to keep something mysterious enough to keep the visitors coming back :P
    Thanks for your interest!

    @Jessica Thompson - ...Thanks.
