Faceless One

I dreamt
Of the Faceless one
Hidden eyes blazing
Like collapsing sun
Silent voice screaming
Coming undone

I heard the sound
Of the Voiceless one
Lyrical catcalls
Dirges unsung
Lost words accusing
Everyone

I felt the touch
Of the Formless one
Embrace of a spider
With web unspun
Creates without knowing
What he has done

    I remember an episode from an old British sci-fi thing back in the eighties called Sapphire and Steel where there was a bloke in a bowler hat wandering round. He didn’t have face. It was all a bit weird and creepy. I seem to recall he hid himself in old photographs as well. Not sure why. The programme never did make a lot of sense.

    • Interesting. I was also watching an episode of Hannibal last night, so ages after I wrote this poem (since I schedule posts a few weeks ahead) and it had someone suffering from a rare mental health condition where they think they are dead and they can’t see people’s faces….felt a bit spooky to see it the day my poem posted, lol! 🙂

  2. That’s amazing. They sound like a trio of creatures you’d read about in a horror story.

  3. I’ve had the same dream Sis……… xxx huggs

  4. Wow! Very good, love it!
    Hugz to you

  5. Haunting piece, Helen.

    I should have read this during the day! lol The faceless one is the one that kind of freaks me out. There was a robot (fembot) on the Bionic Woman (way back when) that used to have it’s human face taken off in fight scenes. It always scared me. This poem gives great imagery 🙂

  7. This is absolutely outstanding Helen I can’t even pick a favorite stanza because they are all brilliant. Love!!!
