On this night of the dark moon
You, my child stand before me to hear my words.
You search yourself only to find it is I that is your shadow
I am the Lady of Shade.
Devourer, consumer, Queen of all that is barren.
I am the great huntress who guides you to you dark places.
I am she who you fear to gaze upon
And so, for now, my face remains veiled.
I am the midnight ocean, A liquid, deep, dark, unfurling shadow.
I wash against the night time sky and upon my surface lays the beauty of the heavens
To face me is to face your deepest fears.
To accept me is to accept your own limitations.
To know me is to touch limitless knowledge
To love me is to love the parts of yourself that until now have known only hate and intolerance
I am she who brings fear and washes it away.
My strength is beyond that of any man or God so do not approach me with a feint heart.
Within my womb lies infinite possibility For within the dark void is all that is, was, and can be.
