Baby’s got the blues

Last year I had Estranged that told me why I could not be blue. Only 28 and I was much too young to let love break my heart.

Time was I’d start getting excited about my birthday the moment we entered a New year – just 5 months and so bleddy much to do! Select a colour, plan the look for the day, buy gifts for myself, budget so I would be a little less than broke on the D-Day. Go to work if I loved my colleagues else take an off for three days. One to prepare; the other to celebrate; the last to recuperate.

There were so many things to be grateful for! So many people to enjoy!

And now again, they tell me I have to do things for my birthday.

So while the heart behaved just fine last year, the pain travelled all over my joints, played havoc with my hormones, and left me big, bulging, and broken.

And now it’s to be a birthday again. They want me to buy clothes, plan a party.

At 29 there will be no defense. No song to sing; just that ceaseless chant I’ve always heard at the back of my mind.

Blue funk, blue funk, blue funk.


About Bhumika's Boudoir

I love to laugh, and end up being a part of high drama and stormy emotion even when I don't pursue it. Being creative, and communicating with people get me going. I enjoy all the good things in life especially those that are slightly risque, and apologise little, if ever, for all that I do. Literature is a passion and so is music.

    I would think 29 is still less than 30. Trying to fan away the blues off a Gemini is a bit difficult. So I give you Anastacia's "left outside alone". Yup, its lyrics are all blue but its music like any true Gemini heart – is all strong.


  2. Thank you. 🙂 I'm off to the beach this weekend with one of my best friends and I'm hoping that will help. Really liked the song and the lyrics. Good stuff. Quite apt. Thank you so much for sharing and knowing. 🙂
