You Were Dead

By , Mt. Prospect, IL
You didn’t say a single word


Not even goodbye
Coward.
You were supposed to be a big brother

I forgot about you.

I put you through hell

I’m sorry
But you made me fall to the ground

You were dead.

I didn’t quit

I kept trying
You didn’t notice though

You didn’t

Care.

I sat in my room

Cried myself to sleep
While you were gone

“Happy”
Self-centered
A**hole

Brother.

The day came

I gave up
Didn’t care
Completely forgot

You

You were once my brother

Loved you.
You’ll always be.
But you weren’t alive.

You were dead.

You’re back

Safe and relieved
My feelings haven’t changed
Resentment
Anger
Fear

What if you leave again?
Go ahead

Leave.
I’m ready
Don’t be surprised

I won’t cry
I’ve changed
Stronger
Healthier
Grateful for everyone

Who supported me
You didn’t
You were dead.

You’re back

So what?
You don’t know me
Maybe you won’t

Never will.
I don’t know

If I truly…care.

But today’s a new day
Something new

Change…maybe.
But the past never will

Always there
You were once dead
You’re back though

You’re home.
