Seeds of Deception
Sarah forgot her-
who helped her discover dreams
and turn their empty home
filled with remains of yesterdays’ abuse and bruised memories
to a haven etched with happiness,
as she presumed her mother
to be the photographer of her disturbed childhood
by slaughtering her love,
to fulfil her devil father’s promise
he made to her in silent whispers of falsity.
