Down the rabbit hole

Crystalline thorns of alice-blue
pierce and break
from within the spiral.
Tearing flesh
in the fall.
Sent shivering.
Crawling, and trails
scarlet-stained.

To her feet, impossible
and dragging her body through.
Curiosity and wonderment;
punished, for her sin.

Then colours fade
to muted greys

Whispers striating;
enveloping, surrounding
monotonous and cruel.
Yet she breaks through.

Her path, she leaves behind bloodied

And cries of awe,
through the searing pain,
before opiate-essence, dark
and where mad delusions follow.
