The Faceless One

The Faceless One Dare to look beyond the obvious, To see the light shining through the utmost darkness And a seer who sees into the eternal distance, Grabs at the dying stork; That travels upon the whimsical wind. And all living things in their deepest slumber, Alas, pray they never recover, For like a silent thunder, behold the mighty warrior; Who cometh to do battle , with the sword. No mercy is given to the young or old. The blood-curdling screams, shatter the peaceful night, The last breath is taken from the heaving chest. From the deepest depths of the sea, a storm is brewing; A wave as high as twenty leagues appear, And none is spared except the silent one. For he is almost all-powerful, untouchable, not human, Upon this wave, he rides from continent to continent. Black cloak, a faceless terror, a heartless warrior; That reapeth the harvest unto the dead, And no one escapes the deceitful one. William Morrissey 3/14/02 vision
