Celebrating my Birthday in ‘Style’.

Today is my birthday. I am turning 23 which is both exciting and scary. Exciting because, well, who wouldn’t be excited to be alive and scary in the sense that turning 23 takes me a step closer to 30 and if we are being truthful, we all are a little scared of getting old.
Setting that aside, when I tell anyone that today is my birthday, the question that pops up is, and quoting, “How will you be celebrating it?” The general assumption is that I will be in some club partying my way in to a crazy headache and the hangover of this ‘birth year’.
After some reflection, I decided to take a different path and celebrate my birthday asking myself the questions no one has asked me. What have I achieved so far? Are they in line with my goals? If not, why? Can I still achieve my goals? How will I do that? Is there anything else I want to achieve? What is it and how will I do it?
I don’t know how you guys celebrated your birthday or how you are planning to do so, but I do hope that this will act as a helpful guide.
As for me, I just hope that I don’t soak my pillow because of the responses to some of these questions.
Happy Birthday to me and everybody who is celebrating their birthday today!

Shattered

She smiles down at me.

Her face is brighter than I remember.

Wait!

Why is she floating?

She reads the question on my face

And stretches out her hands.

I stand on my toes to reach back.

I feel a knot in my stomach.

A tightness in my chest.

A choke in my throat.

Her hands are just a couple of inches away.

The pain is increasing

I should be happy!?

In an effort to understand why I am not,

I look down for a second

And when I look back up,

It is in to the darkness of my room.

It hits me then,

That her bright face,

That beautiful smile that

I will always remember,

Was just but a dream

But the pain,

The tightness in my chest,

Is as real

As the darkness in my room.

Surrender.

385H (1)

My mind is clear,
My head feels light
The sensation spreads to my shoulders
and they each,
the right after the left,
fall in to a comfortable position of relaxation.
Then my hands,
one by one,
fall to my sides
and my body
goes ahead
and revel
at the sensual feeling
of
surrender.
