The Walpurgis Night


Was there the moon
on the sky that night?
You saw the moon
I didn't
they saw the moon
and I didn't
there could have been
a creation made
that night
there could have been a child
begot on that day
if two people agreed upon
having one
being parents
there could have been a child
born on that night
looking like you and
me
how old would he or she be now?
some 20 years old, do you think?
we could be parents of the child
but the creation wasn't made
the intention was, however
the intention that you wanted to be
the father of my child
at that age
wow
so the whole life story
ended in that proposal
yes a proposal
that I can't answer
for I wasn't the father's wife
if I was, would I have had a child
of his?
Probably not
for some strange reasons
I decided not to have a child of my own
for women should be free from the burden of
childbearing and childbirth, delivery
but I see this boy
Jonathan Demian Byron born
out of a woman who I thought was an
overweight
she never told me she was
carrying that boy
so I thought she was an overweight person
who gave birth to a child
that was a shock
that this boy was born in November month
of that year
the new birth of my spirit also took
place that time and that year
so Jonathan and I are the same age
my renewal of my self has happened
while the child was being carried
in the woman's womb
and was I a child all along
that year?
Yes and I was born with the boy
Jonathan Demian Byron
and I am supposed to carry a child
after 6 years since that time
so I was 6 years old when I was
asked to get pregnant with your child
No I couldn't do that
but the moon in that night and you
still brighten my heart
for you gave me your words
that you will be my husband
but you left after the words
and nothing happened since that time
