A Storm of Betrayal

Poetic and graphic description of my niece's series of horrific experiences, as a child. This is her power to heal through literary art and poetry.
.When it rains, it pours. When it storms.....Storms of Betrayal.

.Will I EVER understand the definition of a man, a father?

.Caressing his daughter?

.Pure innocence robbed at 8 years old! .

.In her own cradle! THE STORM OF BETRAYAL IN HER EYES!

.Full of hate and betrayal forever exists in her eyes!

.Promises that I would be protected from ghost and monsters.

.Only to be groped and grinded. telling me you "Love Me?"

.Beating on my brother, while tearing down my mother.

.Scars of pain, hurt, and lonely cries lies of scars to her heart.

........EVERY TIME SHE SLEEPS!!!!


.Hearing whispers and cries.


.Tossing and turning, trying to push him off of her!


.Father amused by his abuse!


.Abandoning the trust and hope of his own daughter, the seed he produced to the world..........A STORM OF BETRAYAL!
