Children of the Moon
Remember the ring I gave you, two small rubies seperated by a moonstone.
It was a symbol we were children of the moon, our hearts seperated by distance,
but so like each other, only different in gender, but always connected by the
gentle pull of the moon's gravity, under the night sky.
Children of the moon are extremely sensitive, intuitively feeling what others are
Children of the moon are passionate, and give their whole selves when intimate
Children of the moon value and yearn for a home not only in the heart of
another where they are appreciated and loved well, but where they feel safe, and
sense security in what the future might hold there, a shell to protect their
sensitive hearts and spirits from the rest of the world.
Children of the moon have a sense of honor, and want fairness and equality in a
world sadly lacking, a passion in our beliefs so deep, it is hard for others to
understand who we are, and where we go sometimes, creating distance between
the ones we love the most, family, lovers, and friends.
Because of this we can experience the greatest highs, but also the deepest lows.
For these reasons it's important you have someone you can be with, you
can't waste a day, waiting for me to come close enough, to love you the way you
need to be loved.
But always remember if you are ever alone in the darkness of
the night, look closely at the surface of the moon, you will see two children of
the moon holding hands, one standing, one kneeling, connected and supporting
each other forever.
