Sweet Sixteen

I don't want

a big

party

or

anything from

my friends.

My friends

are a

blessing

already.

What I really

want

is a

bolt of fabric

a little time

and the

chance

to meet

one of

my heros.

Many of my heros.

I find myself

enthralled

by books

and stories

that will

take

me

away.

Angels

Witches

(Occasional) Vampires

Fae

Anything

but having

to stay put

in

reality.

So even if it is

3 months

before

my actual

birthday,

I wish

to be enthralled

by

dark and light.

By romance.

To watch the
sixteenth moon

so close

to my own.

I want to

imagine

I am also

a Caster.

I'll give up

the Japanese goods

I've been

swooning over

for the past

year.

I much rather

drop in

a puddle

in front

of one of my

favorite

creators

of words.
