Newest Poem!

Just wanted to share my newest poem with you. I originally wrote it for the National Poetry Competition, but lacked the courage to submit it. So, it’s just a new poem now. Enjoy!

 

Malice

A fantôme curled a finger
And the flickering heat spread quick
“Fire, Alice! Fire!”

It crumbled, the world
A fond kiss, Alice
Hands red, shaking, dripping
Don’t be afraid, Alice
Gripped the blade, a vorpal bite
Off with her head, Alice!

The lights go out
And that wonderful land spreads far and thick
A toxin in my head
Snicker-snack, snacker-snick!

It’s dark
Too dark
Can’t see
Who’s there waiting for me?

It’s white
I can see
Only white
But cold!
Too cold!

Shaved
Depraved
Makes me well-behaved
A hole in the head
Gives the troubles more space
A tincture
A cure
Makes me more demure
“No more talk of rabbits and dodos, Alice.
It’s time to face what you committed.”

A race! A race!
A pool of tears too deep to trace
Around and around we go
Until our feet are bloodied roots
The fire made you forget your boots

A curious eye winks from the shadows beneath
Made curiouser by a Cat
Who vanishes;
Leaving only a grin
A wicked slash of teeth

Shall we play a game, Alice?

Chess and cards
A castle in the sky
Jam yesterday and jam to-morrow
But never jam to-day
Too big to play,
Alice

Follow the vale of tears
To find the repugnant Lepidoptera
Steaming and piping in the cool night air

You’re late, Alice
Too late
What’s that you’re humming, Alice?

Dum-Dee-Dum-Dee-Dum

The Hatter won’t be pleased, Alice

But the Dormouse
The Dor
The Door
The door!

Enough, Alice!

But I found the Queen, Alice
She has my face
Wearing her heart on her lace
A Suicide King sits beside her
Says his words in reverse

I don’t understand, Alice
What don’t you understand, Alice?
When can I go home?
You can’t go home, Alice.
Why?
You’re mad as a March Hare, Alice
Mad as a Hatter, Alice?
Madder than Hatter, Alice.

Oh, Alice, don’t you know, dear?
We’re all mad here.

As you can tell, it’s based on Alice: Madness Returns, a fun but twisted game by American McGee. Check out the trailer here.

Blessed be,
