Root Means to Strike

Fuck. The words root means to strike. It is a word of violence. Violent explosion of ecstasy. Violent murderous rage. Violent violation of human flesh. Violent paralyzed state preventing you from moving forward. It stands in when what is in front of you can’t be named. When what lay before you is so horrifying you can’t move. The monster under the bed sits in front of you ready to eat you whole. All you have left is an expletive that can explain all that you feel in one word. Fuck.
