Curse of the Unbreakable

May 24, 2008
By Sarah McAllister, Barnegat, NJ

Be bound by blood – a wretched curse,

This fear that free I’ll never be

From you, from you within my face!

I see within my eyes your hate–

And how I’ll scratch away my fate,

And pray that you will bleed away,

I’ll blind my eyes and never see

Again the mocking mirror’s spell.

And when I’m dying – sick, alone –

When you no longer recognize

Your own sick features in my face–

Why then I’ll know I’ve truly won.

What horror to be bound by blood,

By a diseased, eternal bond–

To you – forever – ‘til I die,

For only then from you I’m free.
