The Guardian

(Note: Nat’s birthday is not until Thursdsay, the 15th, but as you see, it is with me now.)

What else You got?

And now —
The birthday they all wait for
The Big One
Teenager shrugs into Adult clothing but somehow it fits
Votedrinkdrivemarrygraduate
Leaveletgo

Pen on paper, scratching lines into my face and my heart
until I am bleeding ink
And instead —
he is mine forever.

But, well, he always was.
