Faceless - Poem by Kristina Gonzalez

Faceless I walk down these cold streets
Cast in to shadow, forever band in to such deep sorrow...

I see the people waltz around this crowded town, such joy and such hope. They burn me...Their light and happiness tares my heart with envy.

Why was I band forever into darkness,
why do I walk faceless down this crowded streets,
why do I feel so cold and alone down my darkened path?

I can't see where I'm heading,
I have no common sense,
Why don't I emit light like others do,
Why am I cast away in to my sorrow,
From deep within my broken soul?

Can someone see me,
Can someone hear me, scream out into the gloom,
and can’t someone help me?

Why have they banned me from the light,
why have they cast me in shadow?

Oblivious I walk down these joyous streets,
not knowing where I'm going.
I wished I could emit a bright light, so I could drown the darkness and cast away the hunting shadows.

Beautiful sweet melody reaches out to me.
Filling the air with such warm kindness,
I walked down the path, such bright light...
Warm Prussian blue eyes stare at me,
they call out to me but the light hurts me, it burns my skin.
But she calls out to me...

Long black hair waves down her milky white shoulders...
Maybe she will help me;
maybe she will save me from my unhappiness.
Rose petal kisses shower my lips, and her light is passed to me...

I am no longer in shadow,
and don’t walk faceless down the streets,
of my engulfing sorrow.
