Poem of the Week: Love in Numbers

Raymond Yepes, Poet

One passionate, inseparable love

Two hearts effervescent from the sparks they emit

Three dates on the calendar each year, marking a new milestone

Four times that revisit the moments where they were the most devoted

Five days of out of hundreds where they weren’t

Four unsettled tensions that were put in a cracked jar

Three feather girls in Vegas which he bit his lip to

Two guys she talks with on Instagram

One last thread they both hold onto


Zero limits to the pit of heartbreak below them, waiting to swallow them whole
