Theme: Deception

Deception

Once my world revolved around you.
You were my hero.
I that little girl with plaited hair and scraped knees
would turn to you
Whenever I fell down...
You taught me
how to fly a kite
until one day I cut yours and you laughed.
My victory was yours.

We played badminton together and I lost but you
Told everyone I had won.
If I fought with you, you would laugh,
while I would plummet you.
You were always there,
it was known that you were
the elder brother I never had...

That night my father's wife,
my step mommy screamed at me.
And I climbed the wall
to run to your house.
And I sniveled in front of you.
But you put your arms around me
and pressed my small young breasts.
I was twelve then.

After that -
No brothers, no lovers
just men to sleep with
I never trusted men again!
