"The mind is a terrifying universe. Except it's not really a universe."

Just an idea that blossomed during math class. It's really short and repetitive but that's kind of my goal here. :] This was originally going to be titled "Parallel" but that was taken so sorry for the stupid title.

The two girls walked in two perfectly straight lines, trailing black paint behind them.

Heads down. Shoulders straight.

Could they feel anything? No, they couldn’t.

Were they even thinking?

No, they weren’t. Because in this universe, thought did not exist. In this universe, nothing existed. In this universe there was no universe. This universe was the insane mind. This universe was the depressed mind. This universe was the feeling of loneliness and the feeling of hopelessness. This universe was lost faith. This universe was a vast, bleak void of nothingness, the one people went to when their happiness levels dropped. The one where happiness did not exist.

Did they ever regain happiness?

No, they didn’t.

And so the two girls kept walking, heads down and shoulders straight, in their perfectly straight lines forever, never meeting at the tiny pinpoint that was existence.
