Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

Abandoned Hare

Lovely hare, come here and lie
Torn from me with a young girl’s cry
Stuffed and combed, strangled in a merciless hold
Black eyes beady -oh so deceiving!-
They scream of tales that will go untold
There he stays, the wretched thing
Abandoned in the height of spring.
On a mantle of dirty picture frames
The images in them torn: they are all that remains. 
Still frivolous and lovely only in their telling of better days
But we cannot rewind the clock 
We cannot take back what is nought 
Children’s tears, while sickeningly pure-
Are no match for violet spots.
I have no cure.
