SomberSomber, poetry by Sharon Dina Rose Regala at Spillwords.com
was how she counted
the days of her foregone
times,
with disdain
was how she calculated
the lost beatings
of her pulses.
Suffocated
was how she divided
the rueful emotions
of her senses in whole,
painful
was how she multiplied
the hours
of her mournful existence.
In fraction
was her happiness,
in ratio,
was she valued.
By the number
was how she treaded on
the path of her pallid
living,
…but by the number
she won’t again exist–
she won’t again be chained,
to anyone’s strings and equation.
