Face on the Wall

Written by: Russell Sivey

A face on the diluted wall Sign that days are really bent I can’t pluck my eyes from this form It seems that this face is Hell sent Face is distorted, he’s in pain Like the leaving of a loved one Always hurt he crunches his face He looks like he’s lost, like he’s done Staring off into dismal space Never to see the light of hope Love will never enter his heart There’s no way he can ever cope Terror of his lines on his face Brings about certain kind of fear I want to hide from this sad face I find myself crying a tear I turn to walk from this hurt face I will never look back again He did burn an image in me He is one who’s lost among men
