Alice

Darling,
stop this breathless chase
and let our hearts lay like
red velvet cupcakes in a plate.

I never knew
loving you is

                   g
                                                               into a deep black hole.

This heart's adventure is
making me BIG,
making me small,
pushing me at the edge of uncertainty's table
as I wait to
grow into you.

Let's stop and throw a party for two.
P

some m a d n e s s into our
bitter cup of tea and
let our hearts reign.

Throw all your riddles
and smile for me.
Smile
 for me
like the Cheshire cat.

D

p
   all the cards
and judge this affection
like your beloved picture book.

Picture my heart like a
little curious girl in blue.
Forever strange,
forever wild,
forever curious.

Eat it,
drink it,
take it,
and be its eternal

  8. You wrote such an amazing poem, dear, you're so talented and I wish that one day you'll publish all of your poems in your own book! :) What about this poem, it's very moving and emotional, I really like this part about falling into black hole. Ahh, love is the strange, but also beautiful feeling :)

  10. You know I always love it when you share your poetry with us. You are such a natural poet! I really like this poem, both on emotional and intellectual level...I enjoy how you play with words and create wonderful imaginary for us. Beautiful references to Alice in Wonderland, one of my all time fav novels.

    One thing I also admire is how perfect this poem looks on the visual level. I like how you played with shape of the poem but also with colour and italics....ingenious.

    thank you so much for sharing !!!!
