Eyes Without A Face

I suddenly jumped out of a mysterious lingering dream that seems to be haunting
But didn’t quite leave me out screaming,
A wandering eye scans the vast space in time reflecting with a weary stare quite saddening.

Through this crystalline mirror I witnessed how the world came to be
How it was created by the invisible hand of our loving Almighty
Out of love He gave life to things that are meant to be magnificent, stunning and carefree,
That’s the genesis of it all but look at how terror in this once peaceful paradise now reign
People inflicting each other incessant pain,
What happened to this once beautiful Earth His masterpiece?
Can we ever find harmony and eternal bliss?

These eyes without a face out of the blue started to weep
As slideshows of evil doings of mankind flashed before my very naked eyes,
I suddenly felt pain piercing from a deep part of me
But what can I do alone amidst all these misery?
Mercy for myself and my brethren came overflowing this heart of mine
Staring at these teary eyes I begin to question myself
Have I done my fellowmen good?
Although different predicaments were not at times fully understood
Have I fed the hungry, offered shelter to the homeless, listened to a weary lost soul
And be a friend to someone who feels alone amongst crowds of hypocrite people.

A beaming light then blurred these eyes without a face
As an angel stepped down from a heavenly pedestal lead me to a room
With immaculate white walls and shiny crystal ball at the center of this sanctuary
I was asked to take a peak at what our Earth used to be covered with greeneries,
Clear, blue skies and all are in dire harmony.
No drought, no deadly floods claiming innocent lives at a snap
No bombings, no power struggle for supremacy, everything was so simple then
But as man acquired advanced knowledge and skills
He became self-centered, rude and discontent,
We are our brother’s keeper and Mother Earth is our responsibility
Not just a refuge, a shelter but the heaven’s gift to mankind.

    ” Eyes without a face ” , is a very immersive narrative poem that can only be fully appreciated after more than one reading. The sheer abundance of content and carefully nuanced description makes it reads like the transcript of a dream.

    Thanks for appreciating my piece again, Louis. The poem title was actually inspired by Billy Idol’s song of the same title. It is one of the pieces included in an upcoming poetry anthology. 🙂
