the goodbye right after hello..
the goodbye right after hello
expectations and words not kept
a second crack
faltered smiles and unconcerned eyes
a third crack
letting them in, unhealed;
letting them go, healed
countless cracks within her
countless cracks that filled her
cracks that broke her,
cracks that will transform her
..until the next crack.
sweet little Alice, went down the rabbit hole
Alice, where are you headed?
will you meet with the Cheshire Cat?
you left to have fun at the tea party,
but you stayed stuck while the time slowly ticks
Alice, why are you running? were you trying to hide?
No, Absolem can not help you with his wise words now
lone like the Jabberwock, you could have been friends
but you chose to slay him with your own hands
Alice, your bloodstream’s filled and burning you again,
you’re spiraling back to that same old pattern
eyes are hazy yet they speak with madness
will you answer The Hatter’s riddle soon?
sweet little Alice, went down the rabbit hole,
further and further away you fall.
Wildfire. Fireheart. Light-bringer.
she stood there glowing,
gold ember enveloping her
a sign that the fight within has been won
a fight to regain herself
finally made peace with the demons inside
acceptance of who she was, is and will be
burning eyes filled with calm rage
set to strike the darkness outside.
