“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Mad Hatter


Darling when we met; the stars smiled at us.
Meeting you has been a treat my darling.
Loving you darling became effortless.
Our love grew as if a flower blooming.

Time moved faster as we passed our prime.
Darling our time together almost gone.
As the memories start to fade with time.
One day we will be played out on the lawn.

I cling to memories of happiness.
As I watch you struggle with your own mind
I wait for the never-ending darkness;
slowly my memories become enshrined

As you leave me to go to the darkness;
I will be waiting to join you, aimless.
