Shame Bunny (poem)

And then there was shame.
I was deficient,
unstable.
(And who could invest
in someone disabled?)

Such thoughts filled my head,
boiled inside,
splashing, and foaming, and fuming, this tide.
Carried away,
whooshed out of my body!
Vulnerable, angry,
my logic was spotty.
Into the air,
choking, thick clouds.
Not a cell in me quiet,
so unbearably loud.
Cover my face,
clutch my knees, hold me down.
Where is a hug?
No one’s around.

Artist's Description

Written to accompany art “Shame Bunny”. Today was difficult. I became frightened, felt shame, and then was afraid i would be rejected because of these feelings. I felt that, ultimately people had and would abandon me. This piece is about those feelings.
