Count On Me.

I log the hours, minutes,seconds to my soul

Counting, countless moments

All etched in vein , trampled by pulse after pulse after pulse

I can sleep a billion nights and still feel tired

Wired.

I would hug the cells of you if I could

Kiss every nucleus of your living skin

I would never tire of that

But you are not here

And so every step is a million miles

Every breath made of fire

That burns. That yearns.

For you.

I cannot feel the passing of my weary life

But I can tick it off on paper

Tick. Tick.Tick .

As if everything was right.

I won’t know it’s over

Until I’m covered in clover

That I can count on.
