Meaningless Numbers

Air can sustain me
At least for a while
Some water and moisture
To heal this cracked smile
Under the surface
I wish to be less
Meaningless numbers
Mean passing the test
Subtraction subtraction
A mantra in silence
A sure way of dying
Insinuous violence
My blood cannot flow
The darkness is vast
A scar fades away
The pain never lasts
But hunger is different
It gnaws hour by hour
As all my emotions
Are quickly devoured
