The Aperture Of Time

In the aperture of time
How far do moments stretch
How deep the subtle influence
How far reaching, the fetch? 

An eyelet ever open
A gaze that never falls
A stage that none escape
For none can climb the walls

Does the aperture move with us
Or are we just passing through
Are the eyes that view eternity
One day our eyes too? 

Is it a constant overlapping
Or humanity in a blink
Pay attention or you'll miss it
We're standing on the brink
