Beyond the Looking Glass

~*~ Close your eyes To your surprise Wake up never recognized.. Time beyond the looking glass Nonchalantly travels past Without a single question asked.. Judgmental eyes stare in vain A victim of a curious brain Begin at the beginning then start again.. Like falling down a rabbit hole With no control Inquisitiveness starts to take its toll.. Smiling felines and parties with tea Shedding enough tears to fill a sea Back to the door without a key.. Big and small and big again Decks of cards march like men Remorseful innocence not knowing where or when.. Painted red roses lined up in a bed Screams from a sovereign "Off with her head" Once ticking hands abruptly stop dead.. Have I gone crazy? Am I insane? “Curiouser and curiouser!” Again and again........ ~*~

    Lovely sounding, rhyme & meter yet I was at a loss for images, senses, sounds of your own and not from the origin stories. Congrad's on your win. Light & Love
