My Dream Birthday

by Shiny Hoque
(Kolkata, India)

My lover gives me a ring,
My friends dance around,
I cut the cake and celebrate ,
My perfect twenty fifth birthday!!

With Windchimes all-around,
Flowery scent and happiness unbound,
I laugh and dance
My dream twenty fifth birthday!!

Into my childhood possessions when I look
Imaginary lover happily lives in my fairy tale book
Friends too oceans apart
Oh dear my upcoming twenty fifth birthday!

Rusted windchimes stand still
Smell of antidepressant fill the silent air
And Here I am
With old memory book on my lap
All alone on my twenty fifth birthday!!
