Liberating Alice~

Liberating Alice~

A Poem by NoneOfYourBusiness akaKITTY KUTABAREakaCandyPole

Strapped to ashen clouds

Alice, was lifted from underland

 

cinched  tightly by  inflexible societal threads, austere and bland, her genetics rebelled

her bound wrists burst with scintillate seeds, became wormwood upon touching the atmosphere

 

tied up in samite,  lilac ribbons, her saffron ringlets

perfectly coiffed into a story book updo, uncurled, flared  with lutescent flames, her lambent soul competing with the sun

 

the orchid sash at her waist tightened with the compressed pressure of the cobalt sky

until her floating rib punctured the indentured corset, and curved moth wings from her sides

 

her slippers of pearl brocade collapsed with broken bones inside dainty ankles

raining down in ivory spheres and arrow heads to coat the surface of the world, to embed in the dreams of mankind

 

rich chocolate eyes bled cocoa, the atmosphere leaned in deep to taste the sweet imagination of a human child

and her wormwood arms punctuated the crescendo in ripples of whispering leaves, licorice smile a ruby eclipse in the sky, her emancipation a shooting star in reverse

 

Strapped to clouds that carried her to the moon

Alice was lifted into Wonderland

From underland to wonderland this reminds me of being born from the earth, living life and then passing away into the heavens. What a way to go as Alice did a shooting star in reverse while raining down into mankind's dream. I think I love that part the best.

This is awesome! It's very contrasting, the eloquent words remind me of the Neo-Classicists and the lack of form and abandonment of traditional style reminds me of the Romantics. But together, they blend wonderfully.
This is a fitting tribute.
