I look at my phone, your words infiltrate me and I want to sterilise my phone. It feels infected by your words, but as hard as I try nothing will anaesthetise me from the harsh statements.
Your words have entered my conscious mind and they sting. Until enough time has elapsed and they enter my subconscious, then I will have to deal with it. Once they enter my subconscious, they will stay there until something nudges them into my conscious again and the whole process will start again.
