Self-Induced Dream Scape


Self~Induced Dream Scape
A dream scape is calling
Reds, greens and blues
Stained~glass windmills
Spinning forever
As I escape my reality
Alice awaits towering
Over the Queen of Hearts
Her splendor squashed
By the power
In the bottle
The genie escapes
Granting wishbone fears
A beast without backbone
Images haunting
Self~induced mess
This was not part of the deal
Only consequence…happiness
Or death, as my heart races
Pitter~patter~pitter~patter
White Rabbit calling the shots
Will the morning bring me back
Or have I traveled much too far
Down the yellow brick road
Of my own
Self~induced dreamscape?
