You don’t turn into a pile of rubble overnight. There is pain involved. Cracks on the wall take years to show but you will feel them from the start. A slight itching under your skin, tiny wrinkles on your ceiling. A whiff of mould that only you will notice. Ants crawling over your feet, those mysterious cramps in your belly. And still nothing visible. Then the tiles will start to fall out every time there is a storm. Next, a hornet’s nest in your mailbox and tall grass where your driveway used to be. That’s how you become invisible. There will be more cracks and this time they will hurt. Your doors and windows will become unhinged. Draft will get everywhere and you’ll be forever cold. Once they stop visiting, it is only a matter of time. Time is relative here, it can take long. Now the pain will be constant. One by one, you will lose all your windows and then you will no longer be able to pretend that this is not happening to you.
