You sit and stare at me silently from across the room.
Your smile synthetically forced.
Chemically induced.
“This is what happens when love fails,”
Your eyes seem to inform me from within their frozen state.
I don’t know what to do anymore
I just can’t go any further down this rabbit hole with you.
My love, My life.
You must find your own Wonderland now.
Goodbye, my Alice.


Joshua Bott is a struggling student with far too many children, far too much housework, and not nearly enough time for writing. Hopefully one day he will achieve his dream of publishing an anthology of his poetry.
