the relevance of alice, mary and teddy bears †

Hide me in a cardboard box
or deep beneath the covers
push out all the adult screaming
white noise in my head
I know now that Iím powerless
between the edgy silences

Trapped alone in house of people
love, a torn mouse teddy
with a lacy red heart; glass eyes
staring up in unconditional affection
frayed with the comfort
of my seven year old fingers

Books and bears the only cure
for the beatings I donít understand
amid the endless permeating anger
all I can do is dream of worlds
seen only in my vivid imagination
and make my reality disappear

Glazed-in gazes to imaginary places
Iím sailing off to Wonderland
to watch a penguin marching band
and dance along the Christmas streets
where everyone has enough to eat
