Counting down the numbers

Because maybe all I felt was my cold hands

and the slow beat of my heart

as I called out the numbers.

Numbers,numbers,numbers.

Which beat out like drums;the only voices which had not been silenced.

 

I wont lie, the weight of the voices

is the drum beat to my numbness.

when my feet rush down the pavement

I don’t see the light,

because all I see are numbers.

Numbers,numbers,numbers.

 

Because maybe all I hope to be is

frozen finger tips, blue lips, bruised hips,

counting down the numbers.

 

I know you think its selfish

That I chose to traipse through darkness

 

But i’m harnessed to the numbers,

numbers,numbers,numbers.

 

I don’t know why I feel safe in digits

That dignify this madness.

The warmth of souls breathing concern

Pulls me out like magnets.

 

Yet I cannot discern why in incandescent days

that hold me in such kindness

I’m still shaking off the numbers.

Numbers,numbers,numbers.
