Poetry: Day 321

count with me

123

and back

321

forwards and back we go
one step in the right direction
and then you tell me
something that changes everything

(i don’t feel like you do)
(in fact, i feel nothing)

it seems like progress
it seems like growth
and then

you recede into yourself
and i lose grip

123 steps forward
321 steps back
and at zero
we lose it all
