Do not look into my eyes
For fear the treasures
You will find.
I've kept them hidden
For so long
I cannot let you in.
It's all there
Where you can't see,
All of it and more,
But the locks are rusted,
Stiff, and tired.
It's been so long
Nothing can open them,
Not even my dreams
That are slowly coming true.
