Fueled by staying inside
By never seeing people
By wearing a mask
Hide behind the cloth
Leave me anonymous
I've developed extreme anxiety around publicly showing my face. It's gotten to the point I can't drive without a mask or go get my mail. All the mirrors in my house are covered. Seeing myself ruins my day.
you appear in my dreams
and the moment i open my eyes
you're faceless in my mind
do i know you?
i always forget how the dream ends
you're not forgotten
but why can't i remember?
you're like a dying ember
spark your flame!
show me who you are
tell me of your scars
i still cant remember
my head is aching
my heart is breaking
all you'll be is
as time passes
i'll never know
who am i to interfere?
to me, you were a man who was once here
over and over again
til the next dream then
27th january, year 2018
lamyos ng dampi ng ginaw
sa tuyong balat
ng nilikhang kanina pa ay
sa gilid ng dagat
sa gitna ng disyerto
sa loob nitong lunsod
na kayraming pangako
nilalasap ang pabagu-bagong
init-lamig ng malungkot
na ihip ng hangin-usok
may ibinubulong na mensahe
nagmula pa sa kung saang daigdig
pumapaimbulog sa kalawakan
naghahagilap ng kaunting pansin
na wari ba ay kasing kulay
kahit na walang inilimos na tubig-ulan
kahit na sadyang kaydilim
I smile onto the darkness as it watches me
The dark that some would run or even flee
I laugh as I mingle in my friend's presence
He tells me a joke that others would dismiss as nonsense
But in daylight I'm under my person feeling lonely
She hugs she laughs with her friends smiling brightly
I tried to smile as if I had lips
I tried to sway as if I had hips
I mimicked her as she waved but then I realized
I'm not mimicking anything until I am with my old friend
I am but a shadow with no face only black
I am a shadow with no control under daylight I'm a wrack
But With in my old friend, dark, I am free
I could smile, laugh and scream as if I'm a banshee
The only problem is that you can't and never will see
Sometimes I wonder
Who sees me for me
And who just sees a person
Does it make it easier for them
To target a faceless person
Rather than a ******
Is that all I am
Just a messed up person
Whose brain forces harm
What makes me so different than you?
Than the normal ones
Where are the ones who arise for us
Have they all disappeared?
Left us for death?
Tell me what you think.
The Faceless Man
He walks the world without one,
but could borrow any face.
I could guess the colour of His skin
but He doesn't belong to any race
As soon as He's within your grasp
He disappears without a trace
And you can only sense His smile
As He slips into your place.
The Faceless Man is a recurring poetic character of mine. Something always lurking in the shadows.
I fell in love
With a faceless boy
Who walked among the waves
And let his skin bathe in the moonlight.
But I could tell he was smiling.
That's when I fell in love.
My Expressions unclear.
my looks may be a blur..
but regardless of my face..
I'm a Queen to embrace.
Of me completely..
The thorns in my head makes me bleed mentally
Look past my face You may see a deeper place.
In my natural state posed uniquely.
Can you hold every bit of me.
Regardless of looks, expressions, or conditions.
Faceless expressions eyes like weapons.
Provide clues to feelings.
So I'll mask what needs healing
Efforts made to reach the complicated.
Things unseen a task for the dedicated.
Faceless....shielding what I express.
Hidden Knowledge leaking what I'd like to confess. selina 2018 s.a.m
This is what I wrote from facebook after being giving a photo challenge to write on a image given. A woman with no face wearing a bleeding crown on her head as dripping stains run from her forehead. cultural.
i dreamt of you.
you were faceless again.
i do not know why this happens.
I know you do not need me
Act like you care
Inside I see you are broken
Pain so great can hardly bear
I give what relief I can
Need you to take it from my lips
Memory wraps me in a blanket of peace
Soft like your fingertips
Find myself discovering
In my thoughts signs I couldn't read
Truth I tried so hard to figure out
All along hidden in front of me
Be honest and joy will come to you
Able to accept flaws and mistakes
The sooner you will succeed if you do
Have to dig deep whatever it takes
I wonder if you've forgotten the facts
Showing who you really are
It comes naturally to you
Dishonesty is masked with charm
No chance of falling for your facade
Done that many times with you
You crossed a line, our trust broke
When I see you I see the pain you put me through
Do not think compliments and affection
Will magically vanquish the past
Are words all you think it takes to win?
Come on, you can work harder than that
Starting to see you're faceless
Shifting shape from head to toe
Will you stop deceiving all who gaze?
Are you satisfied living out a show?
Round and around we go
You're living your life but it's only a show
