“My Eyes”

My eyes are closing,
not just for eight hours,
but for eight eternities.

When they open to the heat
or to an angel's choir,
is all upon my shoulders.

Whether my sins
are egregious or mundane,
depends upon St. Peter.

My eyes are weary
from the apathetic visions,
of an sincerely dying world.

Is it love that needs revived
to save what is dying now,
open your blind heart please.

So my eyes can close,
with their last vision
being a human embrace.

I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time.
