It all feels disgusting. Unwanted. Not necessary. Ignored. When the pain is released from inside, it is unnoticed, which results in the pain returning. The pain returns and builds up like construction blocks building a home. Soon enough, all of it will take over and will be inescapable. There will be no doors or windows to this home, no absolute outbreak. Soon, an attempt will release once again. One more immense than ever. A wrecking ball will diminish these blocks and the path of pain will no longer occur. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. The only thing that the blocks will do is build up even more. Build up new, stronger blocks. People don't realize that stronger is not a synonym for better. Better is not necessarily stronger. No one will even care anyway.

The author's comments:
This piece was written on the car ride to a restaurant one morning. I was in the car with two other passengers that seemed to enjoy each other's company, just not mine. So I pulled out my notebook and wrote this down.
