I am named after Princess Diana. If only she had a taste of my bittersweet identity; symbolized by the name that is Diana. She holds the name at the tip of her tiara while I'm stuck down there, attached to her heels. It's not so bad when I'm placed on a cushion, waiting for the prince to find me. At school, people call my name like they've never seen it before. As if their minds don't connect with the letters. They call me Deana. They change it all. I try to hide my anger even though it's just a name. But it's meaningful to me and when I hear another name coming from those letters, I don't exist. I can't be seen. I'm not there. My soft touch is gone. I become hazy. However, winter could find me. It could take me back. It could show me who I truly am again. The snowflake's touch can make my day come alive. But I only touch them through my imagination. Where I live is too hot. Too sunny. Everything seems to overflow. I like peace and calmness. I can't find it here. The sound of the rain drops falling on the roof of my house isn't arriving. I miss it, and it misses me. Everyday, when I wake up in the morning, I splash a bit of perfume on my neck. It reminds me of my memories. It is a puzzle piece of my name. Without it, I can't concentrate for the rest of the day. Like a good luck charm. When I think of my name, I think of violet. Violet is not such an ordinary colour. It is benign. It reflects me when I stare at myself in the mirror. I like violet. It's cute. I also like circles. They're like infinity, never stop turning. Never stop giving attention. Just like Diana. I tend to be called unique. If I had a chance to change my name, I wouldn't. Diana is an important part of my story. It begins it. Without a beginning, there would be no end.
