The Girl Without A Name

nameless

she stalks the cage of her shadow

a predator

waiting to pounce

but once was prey

on the fringes of reality

blurring the lines

she cannot remember

from whence she came

or to where she is headed

she feeds on the sins

and fevered nightmares

of childhood's end

forgetting, sometimes

that her own blatant hopes

burned in the flames

she now consumes

and they taste sweet

like arsenic

on her tongue

as she devours them

blood dripping

from her fangs

and running down her moonlit skin

to puddle at her feet

before she straightens

eyes slitted

narrowed

the beginnings of a growl in her voice

she licks her lips

once

twice

three times

to catch the last drops

of her incubuses

softly now

the last drop

of a promise

that was made to be broken

trickles down her chin

landing softly

where it may

and she has no name

but her nightmares

that swirl around her

like so many forgotten dreams

unable to be remembered

unable to be forgotten

she sleeps

again

her eternity

invisible

on time's endless face
