I want to write a number poem

So,

1) the number of boys I fallen in love with

2) the number of houses you lived away from me

3) the years it's been since we broke up

I know this isn't how number poems work but let's skip,

to five 5

5) the months we were together

7) the days a week I think of you

how about 12)

the month you broke up with me

21) the day you broke up with me

22) what would have been our 6 months

183) the number of days we were together

1,000,000) the number of times I've come back to you

3,159,353,015) a number I will always remember for you

∞) the amount of people I tried to replace you with

∞) the number of times I've cried over you

∞) the number of people I've dragged into this

∞) the number of poems I've written you

letters I've written you

texts I've written you

∞) the number of hours we spent on the phone

∞) The number I hold in the pit of my stomach because I know it will never be us.
