For she who understands
nothing but her own thoughts
what is a book that has no pictures?

Bored of the same old routine,
madness calls. it always does

Would you chase time
into a rabbit's hole?
When all you do is fall,
you just don't know
if the depression
you're falling
into is too
deep, or
if you're
falling
too

There's always a door,
waiting to be opened.
Opportunities are endless.
But sometimes,
you just don't have
a key that [fits].

She drinks the wine,
she takes the pill
And wishes she could
overdose in nonsense.

She walks into a world of wonder.
Curiouser and curiouser.
And even though
curiosity often leads to trouble,
she feels safe.

When she drowns in her fears
and gets out wet in pain.
She gets dry by running in circles
[inside] her mind.

Chased by illusions,
always in a hurry,
where are you now
dear Alice?

She finds out,
that even illusions are there
just to change her state of mind.
Confusing it is, she knows.
She runs.

Not even her mind is a safe place.
Not anymore.
Everyone wants to hurt her.
Off with her head!

She's out of her mind.
But she'll be back,
she's always back
into the rabbit's

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
I contrary wise, what it is wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be it would.
You see?
Inspired by Shinedown's song "Her name is Alice" and well (obviously) Alice in wonderland by Lewis Carroll

It's not that good but I needed to fight this writer block somehow.
I don't know if it's the right category :/ I don't think so.

The last lines on italics are from the book.

Thanks for reading (:
Comments and critiques are highly appreciated. <3

Finally someone else on this site that listens to shinedown. Best band Ever. Also made me feel like i was in the Kingdom Hearts version of Wonderland. Ah memories. Anyway, this is really good. However the last 4 lines, if you were quoting shinedown's song, it acutally goes:


If I had a world of my own, Everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be it would.
You see?


Just a few words off but no big deal. I look forward to more of your work.

I absolutely love Shinedown, and I was actually quoting Alice in wonderland in general since those lines appear in every single Alice in wonderland thing I know haha
Thank you very much, love (:
And I'm way too lazy to change it, maybe later haha

Well, if you are I just submitted my latest piece (:
