Numbers

Just a poem that was scrawled on the back of my homework.

Chapter 1

Numbers

Miles of numbers swirl across my mind.
Cascading, dancing, prancing through the valleys of my head.
Whirling into a never ceasing hurricane of digits suffocating my thoughts.
Tens, hundreds, thousands,
Pounds, dates, patterns, ages.
Obsessing.
Adding, multiplying, dividing,
Dreading odds,
Anticipating evens,
And counting.
Counting, counting, counting,
Stars, calories, footsteps, people,
Seconds.
Seeing, counting,
Not thinking,
Not breathing.
The agonizing numbers.
Why can’t
I just
STOP.
