She was Twilight by Ann Christine Tabaka

She lived among the shadows,
sheltered from all light.
A complexity of being,
beyond known thought.
Night called her name.
She walked outside,
reaching for the moon,
wrapping herself in its glow,
she tiptoed across starlight.
Dreams were her only companion
as she wandered past midnight.
She saw things that no one else could,
and spoke words no one could hear.
Reality drew a curtain around her,
hiding her from fears.
She could not be owned,
she could not be tamed.
She was Twilight.
