Camera Obscura

words slither




possibly echos

may disappear

and everything



Waiting, pixelated

cringing worn-teeth wounds

shiver on shell

blasted away

rug pulled out

from under feet

measureless and therefore,

My Birthday

Today I am 30 years old.

I can't believe it. This is surreal.

I've never cared about age before; in fact, enjoyed a bit growing older, packing all those experiences under my belt.

This is a little bit...sad? It's like the end of an era. The "kid" era...even though I feel like I'm very similar to the same person I've always been....a very child-like person, if I do say so, myself. It sounds bad, but I rather enjoy being me, alhamdulileh.

So from now on, I won't be saying I'm "20-______" anymore. Which is what I've been saying for the past 10 years.

So. Weird.

It was a beautiful day though; gray, rainy, long, slow - my kind of day. :)
