Random piece I thought accurately describes some of my mind.

I remember the fall




Then I was here
my wonderland

I'm still not completely sure what happened or why I fell if I'm being honest. Well, most of the time I actually question why I was happy.


Happy Alice

In the sunshine with
no fear

of the long fall down

I can't remember
how it feels

to truly smile
I think I've forgotten how to do that. Maybe if I remembered then I could feel better

Feel well again

But I don't know
what I want

If I want to

I have the Mad Hatter
down here

I have the White Rabbit
down here

Down here in the reign of

the saddened heart

the Queen of Hearts

After all. she's the one that brought me here. Sent me to follow the rabbit down the rabbit's hole.

She brought me to help

She brought me to make

Now I'm painting the
roses red

Now I'm painting the 
pages red

Myself red

But I think I'm getting the hang of Wonderland by now. 

It's dark

But I don't think I can leave anytime soon

Sing for us, sing for us

Caged canarie

Sing for us lonely hearts

Stretch your wings for us lonely hearts

Caged canaries cannot fly
but at least they can sing.

I've been to Wonderland many times, Jay. Sometimes you just can't beat it, even though it is far from Disney!
