A Confession

I once shot a rabbit
with a black crossbow
To put it out of pain.

There was no blood,
Only vermillion tears,
And his screams in fear.

Now, as I close my eyes
To fading colours, I
Can still hear his pleas.

    1. I know. It had myxomatosis and was ill. I’m a vegetarian and love every animal. It was so sad. I didn’t know anything could scream how it did. I still feel horrible about it 6 years later 😥
