Dark Soul of The Night 

Too famous, too young

Hated myself in the mirror

Became socially awkward

Almost mute, dysfunctional

Was used as a replacement

“Toy” was my name

Objectification

Destroyed my free spirit

I ran too fast, too far

Till I lost myself in the desert

Plunged into an oasis

I saw shadows of the demons

In my nightmares that haunted me

daily, I wasn’t dead but half asleep

How I wished a knight would save me

From the monsters chewing on my flesh

In my half conscious state, I summoned

the last remaining will to untie the rock

on my ankle that was sinking me down into

the abyss. No one could save me but myself.

I swam up to shore and rose up as the goddess of love,

Venus, to humanity – to fill the world with love and beauty in my song and dance.

In my rebirth, I had chosen dedicate my life to art and serving the community

like a Vestal Virgin tending to the sacred flame in the temple.

This is my ultimate expression of love for the world.
