Marion Zimmer Bradley: It’s Worse Than I Knew

I’m still the girl who quakes within

And tries to rip off all her skin

I’m scared of water, scared of the dark

My mother’s vicious, brutal mark.

In self-admiring tones she told

Of self restraint in a story old.

For twice near death she’d beaten me,

And now she wants my sympathy.

I’ve gone along for quite awhile,

Never meant to make you smile

But here and now I make my stand

I really hate my mother’s hands.

via Marion Zimmer Bradley: It’s Worse Than I Knew.

I hear you.

I hear you.
