what does it mean
when it frightens me
to hear my words
falling from your lips,
read by your eyes,
understood by your mind?
What is it I'm afraid
I hide beneath my words?
What monsters do I fear
still lurk beneath my skin?
What am I to myself
and those trying to get in?
What have my lost eyes
blinded from myself,
kept in shadows
and blurred beyond clarity?
What am I within
that I must protect
those without?
