I am so alone.

Would you like to know why?

Quite simply, I am terribly afraid,

to look you in the eye.

If our eyes connected,

you would no longer be blood and bone.

Even just the briefest glimpse,

would turn your flesh to stone.

So I wait my days, in my cave,

Sullen with despair.

My only company are snakes,

replacing strands of hair.

Deep within my cave,

I never see the light of day.

Men call me a monster,

but I never asked to be this way.
