Every Time I Close My Eyes

Every time I close my eyes,
I see a fabulous expanse,
A’stretched before me across the world,
As big as the sky and all that.

Every time I close my eyes,
I gaze into this blue beyond,
Big and alien, harkening to me,
And I wonder where I am.

Every time I close my eyes,
I see the same haunting fear, coming faster and faster,
With every blink and tear,
As I pray for the sleep that I’m denied.

Every time I close my eyes,
The searching eye grows ever closer,
And I fear it shall soon have me,
And I wonder how I’ll taste ...

Every time I close my eyes ...
