The Darker Side Of Wonderland

Falling down the rabbit hole,
you now must understand
that there is something darker
in the world of Wonderland.

Darkness lurks beneath the smile
Remaining unseen until the fall
Attacking without warning
It oozes & drips down the walls
This place of bewilderment
Brims with dark shadows that lurk & taunt
Disguised as a lovely dream
This wonderland is a grim haunt

It rises out of pain and grief
Takes the hand of sorrow too
Reaches out and rips your mind
Or whatever the hell, is left of you
––––S L––––

These lands, the bright colours and sweet lies
They make this delusion seem so real
Drawing you in as it tears you apart, you’re not sure how to feel

Sucked into the vortex you loose track of time
Allured by false promises amongst the flashing neon signs
Artificial flavours make the candy taste so fine
You think you're free when in fact you're incarcerated...
Doing time
Lost on the beech like a grain of sand Welcome kid...
To the darker side of Wonderland

Cheshire Cat’s smile
Queen Of hearts’ crown
Mad hatter’s madness
In which we’ll all drown.
Blood boiling for the better days
Where happiness did float.
The crooked madhouse stole my dreams
And drowned it in the moat.

The darker side invites you to play
With Cheshire's hypnotising eyes,
Just as planned.
To play with toxic shadows,
In all areas wash you brain,
Til you can no longer stand.
The ones of you with watchful eyes who attend,
Take notice:
Our turmoil we beg you to end.

Tweedledum & Tweedledee
What sort of Characters are these
I don't think they are harmless babies
NO ! Twins are always antagonistic ~ they're
SINISTER ~ Trouble makers ~ BUT ~ scared of a CROW !
Think of the KRAY TWINS and others ! BRIAN XOX

    brilliant!! i love how this is a combination of poets, writing together . for sure, things are not always as they seem and certainly we can be easily fooled into believing things are nice when in actual fact , that is not the reality. i think if i ended up in wanderland i would be a little freaked out at the weirdness of it all .. the madhatter and the cheshire hat, i'm sure i would feel like i had lost it lol
