We all have a forgotten secret spot that is unyielding and tenderly unprotected. Followed by rage and bitterness. No?

What is pain?
When the tenderest part within us is struck by something blunt and unfeeling. 
'Time heals all wounds', is the cliche
which spells disaster for youth and innocence.
When the greater part of us breaks off into micro organisms
That float around a Petrie dish for study and prognostication. 
When you can no longer feel the elements
That violently tear through forgotten passages.
Where Blockage and atherosclerosis have atrophied,
But the mind is the ultimate teaser.
The jester who waits in the corner 
With grins and goblets of elixirs.
To ease the rampage of illness.
That sick fuck! 
Those that are wise are calloused. 
How else can we face the next part
That soothes and reseals the package
That allows for reuse and prevents spoilage.
