My Birthday Party

My Birthday Party

Welcome to my birthday party
Try to mingle with my friends
Sorry, they are but owls and wolves
And beasts of my sentimental forest
Frightening as they are, they are still the closest
Even more real than the realest

Please have a slice of My cake
baked in despair in the conclave of my mind
Molded fat in misery and tears for yeast
When sorrow clouds your heart like early mist
The oven is ‘reminiscence’ of chances missed

Come let’s listen to apathetic music
While we do a pathetic dance
Carrying daggers behind our backs while we tango
Let’s proclaim our devotion to each other while feelings entangle
In my birthday party

Not So much but it’ll do
Maybe one day
One day I’ll celebrate my birthday
