Soul Searchers

I hate eyes
They see more as the years
They’re beautiful in every way possible
You can fall in love someone
With just one look
See what kind of person lies behind the shell
We’ve carved ourselves into.


That intimacy that crawls up my spine
Like hot hands that grab at your back
You can’t shake off
When I feel eyes looking through me
It's like an open fire blowing heat
To my face
It’s hard to swallow
The thought of someone seeing too much of me
With one gaping look into my eyes terrifies me


So I avoid it
If I could mask my eyes, the fear would vanish
Or my eyes could disappear like vapor
And the idea of someone figuring out the true and the false
Of my life, and looking into the person
Behind the eyes
Chokes me with anxiety and pressure


I hate eyes
They’re a gateway to the soul
Intimacy and soul finding
Looking for the opening
