Simple Enough

It's like when a glue bottle has been open for too long -

You untwist the tip, but when you squeeze the bottle's belly nothing comes out. Dried glue in the tip prevents release.

You squeeze harder and feel pressure building - like the bottle might explode. You decide the best option is to find a needle - to stab a needle into the tip. To recreate the hole,

so the glue can escape. Simple enough. I try to untwist, and to open. To fill the pit in my belly.

I've been like this too long. Pressure building - I try to escape myself - To find release. I'm afraid to explode.

Where can I find the needle to create a hole in my walls for the rage to escape? I'm afraid it's not that simple.
