Shadow of Alice

Shadow of Alice

A Poem by Black Rose Seraphim

A bit more twisted take on the Wonderland, from the View of Alice's shadow.


God bless the precious tiger lily,

who receives his winding woes.

And purge the griffin's weeping,

in this quixotisential prose.


And doth the bleeding butterfly,

drink the rainbow colored words?

To call the anger and the force

of the mushrooms and the birds.


Do you dare me to delight,

within the drollness of my sleep?

I dread the spiteful doppelganger,

who dares to count my sheep.


And who will help the crocodile

to shine his many scales?

Not I, for I am weeping

for the peacocks without tales.


Sentimental, argumental,

I see them through all eyes.

Instead of dreams, disbar the truth

and whittle away the lies.


A pack of cards, a fated hand,

two pair and a royal flush.

The ace of spades and Queen of hearts

can kill you with a touch.


With eyes as red as carmine,

and lips as black as coal,

if I whisper very quietly,

Alice never has to know.

Brillant!! You wrote this so well. Creative and clear. I felt the story of Alice in Wonderland through every verse. You're a very talented writer and this piece is very creative, did I say that already, okay needed to be said again.

Well written to say the least. I enjoyed the vivid imagery in this piece. The dark feel to it is in plain sight which went well with this poem
Good work

What the ****! I thought the original was completely insane. This tops it all. Love it to the extreme. Some of the imagery is splendid and your wording exceptional. I especially loved the part about the peacocks with no tales. That was priceless. The last stanza really rocked. This is going in favorites. Kudos and bravo!
