Bittersweet Birthday

so

a n o t h e r y e a r

has d r i p p e d

down my hand melting like dreams and promises that pool at my feet

sticky with the kind of bitter that burns in the back of my throat

with a saccharine smell that lingers in my nostrils and takes residence in my skull

until only a few simple words shake the melancholy from my bones

candles flicker inside of a song

Happy

Birthday

To

You

Happy

Birthday

To

You

Happy

Birthday

To

Me

Happy

Birthday

To

You

Breathe then blow Just let it go

I made a wish made one for each year

growing and changing

and oh how I am grateful to still be here
