Unsub

Outsider

Wind violently screams & unsettles the calm

Invisible force powered by a façade of brutality

He steps away from his dream back into reality

 

Hail thrashes from the sky onto the frozen road

Ocean of grey erodes against the wall of security

He drifts into the void towards unknown futurity

 

Hooded stranger

Man with no name

Cloaked outsider

Man with no face

 

Shadowed stranger

Man with no name

Disguised rider

Man with no face

 

Lightning streaks & illuminates the empty sky

Electric currents tear apart the Heavens vitality

He moves into the storm & disappears silently

 

Snow rapidly falls & settles across the land

Blanket of white fuelled by a blizzard of impurity

He wanders into the night & fades into obscurity

 

No name, no face

Hooded

Then gone

Erased

 

No name, no face

Cloaked

Then gone

No trace

      Orchi,

      having no name & face has it's advantages; except for passport applications!

          Wow - a real scare of a read before bed Unsub - - you nail it with wind hail and lightning introducing a hooded stranger - you have such a way with words my friend.

            Fay,

            it scared me writing it!

            LOL!

          • myself and me

            Saw the dark knight invaded into the world he does not belong, walking lonely but confidently with his power more powerful than the lightening, with his speed faster than the wind, with his shadow darker than the night.

              M&M,

              Hi Unsub,

              I get the feeling that I have read this before when the Hooded Stranger was seen on occasion.

              If that is so the obscurity has just been made visible once more

                Andy,

                yes it is an older one.

                Unsub.

                No face reminds me of the watchers.. the ones with no eyebrows or expressions, they usually wear bowler hats but now they wear hoodies..
                Your master piece was intense, truly enjoyed reading 🎈
