Photo Challenge #227 – The Faceless Girl

The faceless girl appears so often in my dreams.

Sometimes she leads me in pastures adorned with sunflowers

Sometimes it’s her at the bottom of a chasm

Protecting me from the destruction of my own making.

So much about her, I find appealing

Her touch is always warm and caring

When she takes my hand, I hear her whisper

“Everything is alright, trust in me, you are safe.”

For not always am I safe, there are demons out there

Dressed in the clothes of comfort and care

Ready to lure me into fires they only reveal

When I’m totally distracted and all alone

Then laugh with hideous abandon at my folly.

The faceless girl is my hope, I long for her to be real

To take me as I am, love me for who I am

Accept me as only I know she can.

    There is so much longing in the lines:
    ‘The faceless girl is my hope, I long for her to be real
    To take me as I am, love me for who I am
    Accept me as only I know she can’.

  2. I agree with Kim, Michael. Those last three lines pack a punch.
