Counting


 
Come on, count with me.
 
1, 2, 3, notches on my spear
4, 5, 6, listen but nothing to hear
with 1, 2, 3 drops of blood and water.
7, 8, and 9 are cannon fodder
 
do you know how it feels
To die 5, 6, 7 times?
 
4, 3, 2 Reasons to go on
4, 5, 6 seconds, blink and then it’s gone
 
Do you know how it feels
to lose yourself 9, 10, 11 times?
 
Just when you think that you’ve found a friend
it’s like 8, 9, 10, and they’re gone again.
