Hurting Inside

November 24, 2008
By Anonymous

I see him everyday
He notices me
We laugh together
I don’t think he knows
How much I hurt inside
When I look in his eyes
I see the pain we have shared
The tears that have been lost
When I look at him
A piece of my heart crumbles
I think to myself
Does he even care for me?
Is he sorry for my hurting inside?
Does he know how badly I love him?
That I would do anything
To protect him
To keep him with me
A little longer
He only cares for himself
He has never talked to me
About what has happened
What he has done
He hasn’t apologized
Or shown compassion
It makes me sad
That he doesn’t care
He assumes everyone’s against him
That no one can help
All he does is takes
Take and take
He doesn’t know
That I
Want to help
Want to be there for him
He assumes I am too young to understand
He will never let me help him
To him, I will stay young forever
I say goodbye
For he is no longer…
My brother
