The Needle

Going in and out as fast as possible, it punctures its way through an unhealthy relationship. The start of it is sure and clear minded. The sharpness cuts right through the bullshit because it knows that this is the right thing to do.  With extreme precision It pierces the possibility of doubt with a sterilization that’s clean and good intentioned. There is no cause for concern.

But on second thought, it finds a bump in the road. The unhealthy situation that it’s attacking is what it lives for and once it’s inside, the job is done. Paralyzing the problem, it strangles it, making it disappear. In its absence it has nowhere to go and the relationship has ended. Slowly it pulls out, wondering if it should have ever been there to begin with.
