    Scoptophobia

    Behind my every expression
    All I'm hiding is my eyes,
    Doorway to the real me
    If one peek in might find.

    Your peepers are the key
    To discover the light within,
    But those eyes of yours are
    Deep and my vision is confined.

    My Universe is concealed
    Inside these dark holes,
    By peering in you might
    Disclose my treasured soul.

    The soul that I've sheltered,
    The soul that has been altered
    And not yet ready to reveal
    Itself to your curious eyes.

    This lonely soul is afraid,
    Scared of your gazing eyes,
    Often it will hide from any pair of eyes
    And yet it wants to disclose itself to the eyes
    That also hides a lonely soul inside.
