nameless girl.

i had a name once

and everyone said it differently

until i was a different girl

for each of them

but now my name is used thing

all battered and tattered

and worn from wear

and when people say it now

it falls lifelessly to the floor

like a bird with clipped wings

who once tasted freedom

~ how can a name be familiar and strange all at once?
