It's about a girl, a princess, that was named after the moon. She hasn't had it easy in her life, but still knows how to fight.

She is ruled by the moon

The stars carry her salvation

Riding her way through the night

Lost in darkness’s conversation

Holding on to a memory

Her eyes don’t seem so dark

But if you will look more closely

You’ll notice her soul has been marked


As she walks in the dark

Shadows drawn ever nearer

Wiping her off her feet

Demanding she sees clearer

But her visions are blurry now

Were can she turn to flee

Looking in the mirror of pain

No one can hear her inside scream


Selena, Selena, named after the moon

Can you hear me?

Turned into a dim, starry, lost tune

Can you see me?

Selena, Selena, in the eyes of hurt

But you needn’t be afraid

You can escape your curse

The flow of the poem gets a little bit choppy in transition from the first verse to the second verse. I think it was because the tempo changed a bit. Otherwise, I likee.

:-) Kirstin Linnenkoper replies: "Haha, me likee too. And yes, it changed. Originally this was meant to be a song, so...that's the reason for it.Love~Kirs"

What a coincidence! I have an RPG character to whom you could've written this poem to! An elven princess named Selena (she's a moon elf, so her name) who's been through many terrible things in her life...
