Down the Rabbit Hole

Catherine Webb

I almost caught a glimpse of you today,

a flickering blur just outside my eyes gaze

A voice that stirred echoes within

like you settled momentarily on the tip of my tongue

A fleeting thought, before realised, is gone.

You're the white rabbit to my Alice;

I think all of a sudden, I must get my eyes tested

whilst watching your pocket watch in motion.

When you arrive the lights grow too bright,

the noise too loud,

with an eerie silence

almost profound

I lose myself in the dark velvet underground.

I submerge through water

having once more

fallen down a chasm to the battle ground.

The outside world lies unchanged,

the only clue I have is the mud on my knees.

The shift was internal and no-one detects it.

There is a tear in the fabric of time

with a door swinging open and wide

Lifting the lid on the obscene,

which does not yet have eyes to be seen.
