Chasing the White RabbitTrying to chase dreams,Chasing the White Rabbit by ~alphabetsoup314
I find that I am eluded.
The hours tick away
And then I notice...
the walls pull away from my reach
not quite the room I know;
even though I'm on solid ground
the floor starts rocking
and I start
I find you, holding me.

Find a place or situation that inspires you:
Yes, you've all probably heard this a lot of times, but it's true. Finding places that you like can inspire you to do more art/writing!
