I will meet 23 as Me

not with Joel upon my arm

Not with nor any other

malapropian mate to disarm

I shall meet 23 as Me

with no one to sap my breath

and blow out my candles for me

No unenamored inamorato

to waste my wish upon

I shall meet 23 as Me

I will meet 23

as Melina


Author's Note: Looking forward to this next birthday

Ohhhh yeahhhh!!! This poem leaps across the stage with great vibrato! I like the positive energy and strong communicative style right down to the take-charge title in Roman Numerals. Pe4ce...
