Behind Eye Lids

Closing eyes like this
Is very comfortable

The horizon line is endlessly extended
The ocean is a bright silver surface
The sky is filled by a shower of platinum

When the sun is going down
The sea moves into deep indigo blue
The air becomes unlimitedly limpid

When the sun beams creep parallel to the land
The sky turns to bright red
The ocean is a bottomless dark
Golden beams reflect diffusely

When the sun sets under the horizon
The countless number of stars twinkling in the dark
Are the remains of high noon lightning

I see myself floating in mid air
Uncertainly dying out

Endless waves of fatigue visit me
Sounds and colors disappear
A sleep of emptiness veils

In short
An entire calmness
Will shroud everything
