The Thing With No Name

What a power it is to name a thing. With a simple word or phrase, you identify it and so can know its nature and divine its purpose.

What then when you encounter something that has no name? More than that, it can have no name.
To look at it is to feel a twist in your sanity and compounding your terror. You don’t know that it is a thing at all, only that this isn’t something you can flee from, fight, or bargain with.

What do you do when all that you know is that it must be endured?

  1. The thing with no name that must be endured? Doesn't sound like much fun. Nice drabble, congrats!

    1. Thanks - and it probably isn't the most fun you could have :-)
