I tap, it teases
It’s hiding in my drawer
I’m tempted to use it
I close my eyes
 
I give in, I saunter
Opening the drawer
I smile
I do not think twice
 
I cough, I cringe.
It bites into my arm.
I clench my teeth.
Who am I now?
 
I release, eyes open
Into the mirror
I sigh, dismayed
 
 
I am the same person I was before
