Proof

Once
In a maths exam
I proved the world
was heart-shaped
And we but floating
points of light
Blinding one another
I proved that one
was three
And nought infinity
That God
Was the colour
purple
And that if you
believed
The sun would fall
in golden blisters
The sky would melt
at your touch
Nothing is real
Screamed my formula
Cold, hard logic
Shattered
Why do I even
breathe?
But then they told
me
That I’d forgotten
to cross-multiply
And that my theory
My realisation
Was WRONG
A crimson cross
wiped out my truth
Bloody slashes in my
soul
Destroyed by a silly
rule

But now
When the mundane
engulfs me
And shallow monotony
threatens to break
me
I remember
That fractions are a
human invention
And the world seems
a little less real
than before
No number can
restrict my dreams
