to be named

Names are power. Categorization, the separating of one phenomenon from others, is the beginning of understanding. Understanding assuages fear. The understood may be overcome.

To be named is to be lessened.

I am not named. I am not some sad mixture of earthly things, no twisted lump of beast and man. I am not the darkness; I am beyond it.

I am that hard breath before your stomach falls to your feet. I am that sensation within your skull, which your mind refuses. I am the void. I am your doom.

I await you.
