Interview With Insanity

“You know I don’t want to talk to you.”

“I should know it better than anyone else.”

“I thought I might give it a try.”

“You know you can never get rid of me.”

“That’s why I said I’ll try.”

“Then who will talk to you after that?”

“Mel would.”

“So she would, but she’s never enough isn’t she? You want more than just her. You want the comfort of a crowd.”

“I’ve got friends.”

“Really? Is this your pathetic attempt to convince me or are you trying to convince yourself of that? And where are these friends of yours now? Do they even show that they care? Do they even spare the least bit of time to console you. In fact, are they even talking to you in the same breath as we are?”

“No. But they have lives to lead things that they have to do.”

“And it always happens to everyone the moment you need them the most. How convenient. How pathetic.”

“Look, what do you want from me. What do you all want from me?”

“Awww, we’ve wanted what we’ve always wanted from you. We’re the only people you can rely on. We want what’s best for you. They don’t care. None of them do. All they do is ask things from you when they want to and then run away when they see it fit. No one is ever there for you except us. We are your strength. We have always been.”

“No you haven’t.”

“Yes we have. And all we ask in return is a little favour. What’s a little favour between friends?”

“No. I will never do what you ask me to.”

“Oh but you will. Our journey will always be on the same path. And when the time comes and you realise that no one is there to share their lives with you. You will turn to us and we can all enjoy the tranquillity and peace that you will carve out.”

“No”

“Oh yes. One day, the world around you will burn. One day, your hands will wash in the blood of all the people around you. One day, you will watch as those that have abandoned and spit on you beg for mercy of their pathetic existence. You will finally have your vindication and you will watch in utter bliss.”

“Get out.”

“You can’t fight us forever. Not when you’re alone in the dark. Not when you have no one else that would even lift a finger to save you. Not when we are always here. Not when we are you.”
