Behind eyes are too many monsters
trying to hide - I can see them
through eyes wide open, trusting
me to look and only see
dilated pupils reflecting me.
The monsters are prowling I see them
all; trembling, fearful, ready to tear
up anyone showing they know they are there.
So if I don’t look then I can’t see
your monsters calling to the monsters in me.
