Poem - Without the Faces

The poem “Without the Faces” was loosely inspired by the Doors’ lyrical line “He Took a Face from the Ancient Gallery”.


Without the Faces

The faces in the ancient gallery
each with intents few conceive
become the nature of the ones
that travel far beyond the veil

those safe realms of the mundane
are left behind by the brave
with mere protection of a masque
this thin shield against the damned

in the realms between the stars
where only madness may be found
look to the helmet closely worn
to secure the deceptive calm

traditions once long lost
hold the secrets now disclosed
don’t taunt the wisdom from beyond
without the faces from the halls.
