The Bambi Complex
I was the subject of a family joke
Feeling the pain for sixty years…
“They had to drag me from the theater,
A little boy screaming in tears”.
The fear of losing all I love,
Lost security I’d never recover…
All occurred at the age of four
Witnessing the death of Bambi’s mother.
Exposed at such a tender age,
To adult’s cruel deeds and lies…
Left me still so unprepared,
For this lifetime of goodbyes.
