Shy Blight

Why do you hide from me?
Are you
Bashful, or
Just rude?
I find you intriguing
But also offending
Am I
Scary, or
Intimidating?
I don’t understand you
But I enjoy you
And your presence

Always retreating
Out of the spot light
Hate the attention
Hate the ever-watching eyes
That follow me
Everywhere
Bright lights are not
My forte
More of a stage crew
Than a performer
Not one to be famous
Normally anonymous
