       Going out and away this weekend with my siblings and family to celebrate my 21st! From past experiences I've conjured this up...hopefully the result will end differently! Hah!

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dots(Happy) Birthdaydots

    As I age and turn another year
    My liver feels its worst off fear.
    I flashed my card with prideful gloat
    The drinks slide ever down my throat.

    Drink of choice is black spiced rum
    Twenty plus one deems its sum.
    I feel the æther filter through
    I feel the music grow, accrue.

    Waves of warmth upon my face
    Welcomes waving warmth's embrace.
    I feel unbalanced on my feet
    That's alright, the ground I'll meet.

    Softer than I thought, I thought
    Maybe too much rum I bought.
    Maybe this is not what's sought,
    Nausea's lesson must be taught.

    I feel my stomach kick my throat
    Since when was I upon a boat?!
    These waves are different, I connote
    How hard it is to stay afloat!

    I sail the storm of all that's blurred
    "Captain, get me home!!!!" I slurred.
    Next day from sleep I finally stirred
    And faced the wrath of sibling's word.

      Hope it was a great birthday, even if it was a bit rum soaked. This was very light and easy to read with a good flow. I think most of us have been there, and done that, and someone snapped pictures to prove it.
    This will make a fun "diary piece," as I like to call them, to add to your collection. In another few years it will definitely give you chuckles to sit back and read and remember. I hope the morning after was not too bad!

      Happy birthday to you! I hope it wasn't that of a crazy night! But at least you'll have something to remember...and not repeat ;).

    Oh, dear, you said it so beautifully and accurately when one has a bit too much, not knowing one's limits and the consequences that follow. I think we can all agree we've been there at least once. Unfortunately, when you get into deep...it's a bit harder to control yourself even when you didn't plan so initially.

      I remember my first couple of bouts with serious drinking leading to similar states of wretched puke-ness. Fortunately by the time I reached 21 I already had a bar I could go to that had been serving me for more than a year so I didn't O.D. (over dose). Being much older and wiser these days I almost never O.D. My 60th birthday being an exception.

    I love the fact that you're a rhyming poet. It's a lost art for most of our poets. Though some of your rhymes were a little bit forced and contrived I enjoyed this piece immensely though this may have been to an extent a product of the nostalgic contemplations it caused me. Thanks for the smile.
