Square One

i am a young person
but not brilliant.

if i were,

i wouldn’t be doing
absolutely nothing
while the demons
clutch at my waist,
tighten my throat,
and convince me
to play with them.

i’m ready to self-destruct.

hashtag: emptiness—
i’m tempted to return.
fastest descent ever.

then all that remains
is a return to steel—

and i’ll be back
at square one.
