This work has reached the exceptional level
Is it really hard to believe?


by Quiet Guy

He has no face
It may be a thought hard to conceive

He has no eyes as he no longer wishes to see
He remembers how he used to star gaze
Now he is blind to everything

He has no mouth
He doesn't care to speak
He just keeps the words in his head and overthinks

He has no nose
It makes it impossible to breathe
Yet he doesn't die so his existence is agony

He has no ears
He grew tired of hearing things
He ripped them off yet what he heard still rings

Where his face would be there is but a flap of skin
One could say he has no expression

A faceless man may be hard to understand
Yet is it really so hard to believe?
