Moonlight Message to You

Let no one’s will eclipse your spirit

If one should dare to tread upon you

Let there be war, and do not fear it

Know the red fire burns within you too

*

If one should dare to tread upon you

Arm yourself with Artemis’s bow

Know the red fire burns within you too

You are a warrior; hunt down your foe

*

Arm yourself with Artemis’s bow

Protect yourself with fury’s strong shield

You are a warrior; hunt down your foe

To no one’s will shall you ever yield

*

Protect yourself with fury’s strong shield

Gather the strength of this crimson moon

To no one’s will shall you ever yield

Know, your time to reign is coming soon

*

Gather the strength of this crimson moon

Let no one’s will eclipse your spirit

Know, your time to reign is coming soon

Let there be war and do not fear it

Narcissa’s Daughter

Mother Narcissa-

she hated the moon.

“Conceal yourself.

She will be gone soon.

.

A child such as you,

Moon cannot abide.

You are not her kind.

Now, go run and hide. 

.

You are not of her

celestial court.

You are base and dark.

You’re an earthbound sort.

.

Stay in the shadows

away from her light.

Remain with me here

in the dark of night.

.

Narcissa’s daughter

did not wish to stay.

In the late, late hour

she ran far away

but was caught by Moon’s

bright, glorious rays.

And trapped in that light

the girl revealed

all that her mother

wanted concealed.

.

Look,” Moon instructed.

Look into my orb.

See the reflection

of the girl I adore.”

.

And so the girl saw

what her mother knew-

a heavenly child

now whole and renewed.

A similar face.

A different heart.

Mother Narcissa-

only a small part

of a brave, young girl

who ran to the dark

and found in the light-

Moon-her celestial parent

who watches her in the night.
