When You Close Your Eyes

Clasps of crusty sand paper eyes unlocks a world of darkness. 
The black infinity allows for painter fairies to tiptoe out of solitude,
Swirling and dancing until their freedom seemingly runs scarce. 
Taps of a jewel-encrusted wand flood the gateway opening, 
And a vision of the unknown imagination takes shape. 
The spectrum of color expands into the unforeseen,
And vibrant specks glimmer through pin pricked holes.
Lo & behold does connecting the dots reveal an image of truth, 
Deep seeded ambitions lie intertwined with a painter fairies’ mind. 
So, allow for your weary eyes to rest,
And let the secrets hidden beneath erupt beyond the darkness.
