I believe in the magic of names, and mine means “The one we love”
My name suggests that an encounter with me might change your life,
One interaction with yours truly will render you unmistakably in love.
A name passed down through the generations of my family,
How do I live up to playfully wisdom of my great-aunt?
Or the ‘take on the world’ charm of my aunt?
The living legends of my name’s past.
But I didn’t want to be loved by everyone,
Not by people who didn’t really know who I was.
They didn’t know that I was flawed and prone to stumble,
Or that on some days I wasn’t very lovable, not even a little bit, not even at all.
So I made my universe smaller,
One filled with people who would love me
Even if my name wasn’t magic
