“You know? You and your husband are the newest Omphalos.” Princess MayRose mused to her cousin.
“Meaning, you’re the daughter of a powerful Royal couple and your husband is an Emperor.”
“And?” Indira sighed.
MayRose sighed. “Do you not understand? You two are the common link between two extremes. Your union has created a powerful center. Use this to influence peace around you. Otherwise, your links to other kingdoms will be used as strings by the evil ones and you the puppets. You cannot be indifferent to what you possess!”

“Careful. Don’t catch feelings.” Iré cautioned her daughter.
Emira chuckled. “Feelings aren’t the virus, mama.”
“Don’t be absurd. You know darned well what I’m talking about.” Iré huffed.
“Remember, how important your faith is to you. That alone is a deal, marriage, and heart breaker. Unless he’s a Biblical Christian, what brought you together will not hold you together.”
Little by little, I had to recoverFrom misshapen realities that hit me like feverish fiascos
Little by little, I am building up what was lostLike the egg nest, I strived to have
Little by little, I will recoverThe heart of who I am
Little by little, turbulent tranquillity is giving wayTo tranquillity…beyond bliss
For nearly burying yesterdays
Of the heart of who I am
— the candy cabinet of splashes of indigo and magenta in twilight beyond bliss….
May the faceless faces
Of misshapen realities and stormy nights
Both impressive and ludicrous
Be lost in lava swirls and twin flames forever
