Behind The Mask - Poem by Soul Searcher

You kill me with your prying eyes
Reading what's inside my heart
My secrets most precious
Revealed against my will
The furthest I've let anyone
Wishing I could undo
What I have done
I've let you in
When I should've shut the door
So why didn't I before?
But now you know
Almost everything
And I'm helpless
Helpless against your watching gaze
Waiting to absorb
To learn who I am
When I wish to hide
I could beg you
To leave me alone
But I know better than to try
Because I have a weakness
I wish to stay unknown
Unjudged, and uncompared
To my poetry
But it's too late, I know
Wish I never told you
Who I really am
At least I had a shelter
A place to hide my thoughts
But now there's no place left to run
Where your eyes won't follow
So I five up, despairingly
Knowing, it's time to move on
