Reality Check

Reality Check

A Poem by LunalitSol

Reality Check
Step into nothing
Fall into life
Splatters of paint
The world is rife
 
Willows whisper
As Dawn Breaks
I wave into Wonderland
While the cheshire shakes
 
In its boots the cat quakes
Whilst smoke quivers up
I melt from my apron
And tip into the rub
 
The flowers, they murmur
Gossip and sneer
Above me, trees snicker
Passing  by Mirage's pier
 
Threads of tea smile up from the sky
Pipes oscillate
Smoke shivering up
Half-birthday pie
 
Books snap shut
Open and growl
Lilies quiver with fear
A drop to the ground
 
Sprouting up
Meeting the floor
Winding staircases
Crumbling before
 
Paper is twirling
Odds are defied
Teacups Clink
An ode to life
 
Plummeting fast
Into Solid ground
A Rabbit Hole
Down...Down...Down...
 
Lost
Bemused
I am chained I am caught 
Dream and Reality together are fused
Yet I must pull myself taut
 
Stand and dust my apron off
Ignore the echoes
Ignore the Hearts
Go on
 
You're alone now
You're on your own
Forget the chant ringing in your ears
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late

A great summery! I guess my response to the poem takes it down a darker road of escapism... and I especially like the way you ended it.

Up and Rub is great rhyming, I only caught it on the second passing which made me pause and appreciate the poem even more. Although, I think continuing the rhyming scheme established in the beginning would make this poem more powerful - but all in all, I thought it was a great poem and makes me want to check out your others.

Cheers!
