Dancing with the Shredder Tornado
You really fucking suck.
You did it, Thyroid. You destroyed me, tore me to pieces over the years. But no, that’s still not enough for you, is it? You are still vying to make your cancerous presence known. You broke me. My heart, my spirit, crushed. I hated myself because of you.
What you’ve put me through I can barely put into words. You tried to kill me a few times. You almost won. I almost let you win. At times, I wanted you to win. But here I am, still cleaning up the mess you made.
Can we please go back to the good ol’ days? The days when I didn’t know what the fuck you were? I’m a different person now. A stronger person. A better person. What you’ve given me–is it a blessing or a curse? Right now, I’m too conflicted to say.
Either way, I really fucking hate you.
Until we meet in Hell,
