Snow-White Bunny

The snow-white bunny in me exists no more

The pure white sheen forever lost; nothing amasses but the lifeless fur

The bright of snow, now as dull as mould

A broken hollow as I watched it pitter patter out of me.

Husk and broken, the darkened bunny an empty model of its former flame

Tears of gold flowed and flowed, wept and wept until there was naught left but barrenness and cold.

Naught left but to regard, I am the one to blame.

The escape of the pure white coat left me bare, left me feeling lost with no one to hold

Broken and used with no one to care

Left a young soul feeling too old, I felt the earth shake, the ground take my feet, my balance stumble

Cast away and destitute, then heard the Devil’s laugh, ‘Oh look proud bunny, now thou shalt travail to be humble’

Loneliness then prevailed, my heart split and brimmed with salt

I cried out to the world my hidden pain, poured out my extreme renouncement, screamed out my fault

The vastness of the bareness highlighted my abandonment

Wormwood filled my tongue at the overwhelming remembrance of my folly

Wormwood filled my tongue at the overwhelming remembrance of my loss

The vastness did provide naught but hours to think.

‘The snow-white bunny in me exists no more’

The emptiness did my mind try to infuse with thoughts, filled and filled, crowded to the very brink

This brought me no peace

‘The snow-white bunny in me exists no more’

It calls, and calls, on repeat like a mantra

It called and called, and the surety consumed my very core

It called and called and refused to cease.

It brought me no peace

‘The snow-white bunny in me exists no more’

This, my conscience doth refuse to forgive.
