A blog can be used to go all "emo"

What I used to do with my fingers
(A pencil drawing of my bad finger back when I was angsty)


Since Then


I count time
with my fingers
the cigarettes that I burn
the fine lines that appear on my face
the new songs I hear
the fading of things old

I count time
with my fingers
the ticking of the clock
the calendars and planners
the birthdays that pass
the blurring of memories

I count time
with my fingers.
One, two, three,
four, five, six
seven, eight, nine,
ten, eleven
Years.



What I do now with my fingers
(Sufia's tiny feet on my hand)
