eyes looking nowhere but inside something between scared, with a vision, or plain lost

I think munch did it by making one eye just steadily looking 13 degrees down and the other, looking scared, but that one is only a white diagonal half moonish tiny line going slightly up around a little blue dot behind a nose there is a lake or a sea, there is water in front of her eyes, but she is not looking at it we cannot wake her forever I want to kiss her
