Beauty and the Beast. . . in me.

Last night I was looking at myself in the mirror in the dark, and for a moment, in those vast black spaces we call "pupils" I saw my inner beauty, and I saw my inner beast, and it scared me. Instantly, those invisible shutters flipped down and they were just eyes again, no longer windows. And now I wonder, has anyone ever seen in my eyes what I saw last night? And it frightens me. And it excites me too.
