Returning

Returning, returning

Always keep returning

To the scene of the crime

Struggling

Scraping

Thrashing

Pressing

Wailing

Against these walls

.

For a moment or two

The box becomes bigger

And ahhhh, sigh…..

.

But returning

Returning

At some point always

Returning

To the scene of the crime

.

Commonly, to push through

Ensures probable long-term

Shifting

Perseverance, toughness

Not letting walls win

.

Unsuccessful, upon pressure

Over and over

Returning

Returning

Always returning

Unsuccessful,

Lurching in abysmal hopelessness

.

Returning, another round

Broken, open

Tools, spent

The question starts forming

Why

Does this body

Want to go back?

Spirals, spiraling

Years of pursuit and defeat

And now

The question

Is there wisdom in the

Returning

Is there wisdom in the

Struggle

Is there wisdom, hidden

In the symptom of return?

Turning towards

Instead of pushing forward

The question, holding

The question, exploring

The question, honoring

The question

Asking

Why do you keep returning?

Why do I keep returning?

Is there a who, urging returning?

Same numbers

Same boxes

Same terror

Hovering ’round

The scene

Of the crime

.

Returning, returning

Spiral, spiraling

Wisdom, not pushing

Wisdom, turning into

Wisdom, asking

Wisdom?

Asking

Asking

Returning

Returning

Returning
