Piercing : family curse

This piercing in my head

Hurts like hell

Especially when you speak of the togetherness

I am barred the way from

Is it my permanent curse

To be exiled

To not be able to find

A way to be welcomed in

Unless I break down the door

And yet something in me falters

Feeling I don’t belong here

While another part feels spun awry

By this feeling

Are we not family

Flesh of the same flesh

With blood ties only severed

By a death

No one ever speaks of

Lingering like a ghost

Upon the eve of Christmas

So I will sit all alone here

Remembering so much

While you drive

Not really knowing the way

Full of anxiety

It would be so easy to reach out a hand to me

But instead I will be here

Crying into my hands

Knowing the one who offered me love

Is now exiled too

Because all along

It was just too impossible

To break the family curse

  1. It is amazing the number of people who have family curses, some families sold themselves into evil to avoid pain with the compromise of harming the good born into the family. So many have been cursed at birth or there abouts from evil family members. Too much of this goes on and we do not realise it. Heaven help you if you have a strong God Light in your eyes when young. Evil is hell bent of bringing all that is good down. Bless you for righting this. I am with you on this.
