A Character

Once spoken, the face flies off

Leaving the being without an identity

Before being replaced by another

Sits uncomfortably 

Conflict of interest shapes reality

Eyes beg for perceptions

Disconcerted hair speaks with the wind

Standing near the precipice

Bridge starts few inches away from a step

Vanishing into the befuddled clouds

Egoistic eyes swell with pride

Stings of lies swarm from creepy lands

Face feels heavy

Hands unable to pull away the mask

That one step seems edgy

Impossible to erase the identity
