It itches so we scratch it
Breathing deep and closing eyes as the action results in a strange relief
Ignoring the knowing that once we stop scratching the likelihood of the itch returning will be multiplied.
As if on a schedule...
Our old friend is back
So we scratch again.
Turning our eyes away from reddening skin
Rationalising the long term damage we will no doubt make.
And when we've finally exhausted the option and have ruined ourselves permanently we cast a regretful eye fully knowing we would repeat the action without remorse
